Diagram Illustration


Network diagrams are perfect for showing how hardware devices are connected to each other. Instead of trying to cobble a network diagram together in Excel, use a free, downloadable template from Lucidchart. Lucidchart lets you make and edit network diagram templates. Once you’ve finished your diagram, you can easily insert it into an Excel document.

What are network diagrams?

Network diagrams visually summarize many kinds of computer networks. They use illustrated symbols to depict devices such as laptops, routers, or satellites. A network diagram can capture something as broad as a city-wide computer system, or as narrow as a personal work space. The most common type of network to diagram is a local area network (LAN), which depicts a contained network with multiple devices, such as a home or office.

Lucidchart lets you effortlessly produce these diagrams, as shown in the template below. To edit this template, simply click on it and you will be taken to Lucidchart’s editor. Then use intuitive technology to add or remove shapes or resize lines. Once you’ve made the diagram your own, you’re ready to add it to Excel.

Add to Excel

  1. To add your network diagram to an Excel document, select File > Download As in Lucidchart. Choose your preferred image format (PNG or JPG) and desired image resolution, and then choose Download.

  2. Open up your Excel workbook. Go to Insert > Pictures, find the image you just downloaded, and choose Insert.
