network drawing software?

Often I see people explaining their networks online. They have pictures sometimes. What software do most people use to draw their networks to explain to others?

I need something free or cheap since Networking is not really my job.

Thanks!

Visio is one option. Otherwise try searching in »No, I Will Not Fix Your #@$!! Computer as I think this topic
was brought up once or twice before.

In a professional setting, it's mostly going to be Visio. However I've found Smart Draw much easier to work with overall.

I do have visio but I don't have any templates for networking. Where would I get networking templates?

I don't know about templates but you can get shape files from various hardware manufacturers for their equipment.
