I'm reading about different types of network topologies used to form a LAN:

  • Bus
  • Ring
  • Star
  • Tree
  • Line
  • Mesh

Do they participate in MAN or WAN? Are there different methods to form a MAN or WAN?

I see no reason why a MAN or a WAN couldn't use any of those topologies or a mix of them.

These categories are not always distinct. This reminds me of token-ring networks, logically a ring, physically a star or tree.
