Windows 7: What's the Diff ?

What's the Diff ?

I've been researching this but I'm coming up empty so I'm looking for some help. I'd like to know the difference between creating a network bridge with two network adapters, and doing a merge of two networks. Are they two names for the same function or set-up? Or are there clearly defined protocols and attributes to each. I would be most appreciative if someone could give me the low-down.

Thanks,

rbi

I would have thought the wording for it is self explanatory.

That makes great sense, so how does the explanation corrispond to this one on bridging? I'm still confused.

As far as i know bridging is for Network Connections. Merging is for Locations.
