  4. Great diagram! I used Lucidchart's cisco network diagram software and it was really easy to understand. If you use diagrams often you should check it out!

  5. I use a different tool to create network diagrams. However I'm surprised to see that MS paint could be used to create network diagrams, there are some network diagram templates that you might find interesting

    1. Hi Shalin. I guess the reason I prefer paint over visio, is that it looks better and cleaner to me. That's really it.
