Matroidal networks are useful tools in furthering research in network coding. They have been used to show the limitations of linear coding solutions. In this paper we examine the basic information on network coding and matroid theory. We then go over the method of creating matroidal networks. Finally we construct matroidal networks from the dual of the fano matroid and the dual of the non-fano matroid, and breifly discuss some coding solutions.
