LAN - Finding another computer's name using an IP address
LAN, a local area network provides networking capability to a group of computers allowing data sharing such as files, games, printers and other applications. This network is built with hardware like Ethernet, adapters, hubs and cables. It transfers data at higher rates. An IP address is an internet protocol address required to share information between PCs. If you know the IP address or hostname of another computer, you can check the folder and file shared on that computer directly. To know the name of another computer, you need to enter specific commands. It is not necessary to know an IP address to find other systems if you have a Wi-Fi LAN connection.
