what is a topology

In computer networking topology refers to the layout or design of the connected devices . Network typologies can be physical or logical.
Physical topology means the physical design of a network including the device, location and cable installation.Logical topology refers to the fact that how data actually transfers in a network as opposed to its design.
Logical networks versus physical networks.

A logical networks describes how the networks operation. A physical network describes how the network bus been cabled. It is thus possible to have a physical star, logical bus network in the other words, the network operation as a bus network, but the caballing has been implemented using star topology.

Topology can be considered as a virtual shape or structure of a network. this shape actually does not correspond to the actual physical design of the design of the device on the computer network. the computer

On the home network can be arranged in a circular shape but it does not necessarily mean that it presents a ring topology.
Identifying main types of physical typologies

The following sections discuss the physical typologies used in networks and other related topics.
The basic typologies you will find in most LANs today include the following :

Bus topology:
