 Network topology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A network topology is the pattern of links connecting pairs of nodes of a network.
Network topology is determined only by the configuration of connections between nodes; it is therefore a part of graph theory.
Distances between nodes, physical interconnections, transmission rates, and/or signal types are not a matter of network topology, although they may be affected by it in an actual physical network.

 Lesson 3: Network Topology
The bus topology is often referred to as a "linear bus" because the computers are connected in a straight line.
Linear-bus trunks connect the hubs in a star bus, while the hubs in a star ring are connected in a star pattern by the main hub.
To determine which type of topology would be most appropriate for your site, add up the number of bus selections with check marks next to them, the number of star-bus selections with check marks next to them, and the number of star-ring selections with check marks next to them.

This topology is probably the cheapest network type of all to initially setup, as only one cable is used the installation is fairly simple and economical.
Another consideration if using a bus topology for a network is fault tolerance, or the lack of it, this type of network transfers data by passing messages through the same cable, so a break in any part of the cable will bring the whole network down.
Star topologies are very common, especially in Ethernet networks, also, they are commonly mixed with one of the other topologies to create a hybrid topology.

Bus is a length of cable with terminators on the ends.
The topologies are physical descriptions (or logical versions of the physical descriptions, hehe).
Bus is a line (I think of "bus line" to remember it), ring is a circle, star is like an asterisk (lines radiating from a central point), mesh is literally a criss-cross of lines like a weave.
