LAN (Local Area Network) is easy to connect to. The majority of home and business LANs now support wireless meaning you can connect to it with a wireless device.

If you have a device that supports Wi-Fi then look for the option to enable it, on a Windows OS it is normally a set of bars in the bottom right corner. Once you have it open you can then select the network, you may be asked for a password. If you have the password and you're allowed on the network then you shall be connected to the LAN.

A second option would be to plug a Cat5, Cat5e or Cat6 (ethernet cables) into an ethernet port on your computer and the other end into either the modem/router directly or into a network switch/socket (normally used in larger buildings or when you have many wired connections).

Good luck and I hope that answers it.

Do you have an existing lan? Are you trying to get 2 machines to speak to each other? Trying to get a shared internet connection? Mayber trying to share a printer?

We'll need more info.
- what equipment do you have ?
- what are you trying to accomplish (see my questions above)?
- Is there anything already installed?
