LAN = Local Area Network.
This is typically the network that connects various devices at a single location. The devices you have at home are connected to your LAN.
WAN = Wide Area Network
This is typical the network that connects LANs together. Your router at home (that manages your LAN) connect to the WAN provided by your ISP.
