Network: a generic term for a collection of computers connected to one another, OR a generic term for the means with which they are interconnected. So you can have a network of computers, all connected via a network. (Confusing, I know :-) ).

 

Wi-Fi: a specific networking technology that allows computers to connect to one-another wirelessly.

 

Internet: a specific network of computers interconnected to one another around the globe.

 

The computer I'm using right now is connected to a network (the network in my home), via Wi-Fi (it's a laptop with a wireless connection), and through those two it's connected to the internet. The AARP computer that hists this message is also connected to the internet, though very likely through a wired connection instead of WiFi.

 

Those are pretty short, trite definitions. If you have specific questions about them, though, chime in....

HI! I'm new here and hope I am doing this right.

My question: what is the difference between the terms NETWORK, WI FI, and INTERNET?

Thanks to anyone who answers.
