Computer networking media sharing protocols allow two or more computers to connect to a physical or virtual medium. The most common case are the IEEE Project 802 medium access control (MAC) protocols for wired and wireless local area networks, but also include connection-oriented multiplexing protocols such as frame relay, asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), and point-to-point protocol (PPP).

They assume the existence of computer networking media attachment protocols, which manage the attachment of a single computer to a medium.

These protocols may include various layer management protocols, such as address negotiation in PPP.
