The research is aimed to explain physical topology that means how to connect computers in the network physically. Due to technological improvement different alternatives were invented for physical topology with the help of network hardwares such as switch, cables and connectors. In the paper, bus, star, ring, tree, mesh and cellular topology which are models of physical topology will be emphasized.
