What does it mean when you dream about a lane?

Dreaming about a lane can have the same meaning as dreaming about a road: namely, the direction of our life or our life path. Whereas a dream about a country lane might be alluding to a “trip down memory lane,” a lane on a multi-lane highway could indicate “life in the fast lane.”

LANE

(1) (lane) A channel in the PCI Express interface. See PCI Express.

(2) (LAN Emulation) Connecting Ethernet and Token Ring networks together via ATM. LANE was also used to create emulated LANs (ELANs), which like VLANs, logically combine groups of users. Governed by the ATM Forum, the LANE User-to-Network Interface (LUNI) defined how end stations communicated with the ATM network.

Encapsulating LAN Packets
The LANE driver encapsulated Ethernet and Token Ring packets into LANE packets and then converted them into ATM cells, and vice versa. The driver resided in each client station and in an edge device between the LAN and the ATM switch.

The LECS and BUS
Implemented in an ATM switch or stand-alone server, LANE comprised two software components: the LANE Configuration Server (LECS) for address resolution, and the Broadcast and Unknown Server (BUS) for multicast and broadcast traffic management within the ELAN. See ATM and MPOA.

But when Amelia came down with her kind smiling looks (Rebecca must introduce her to her friend, Miss Crawley was longing to see her, and was too ill to leave her carriage)--when, I say, Amelia came down, the Park Lane shoulder-knot aristocracy wondered more and more that such a thing could come out of Bloomsbury; and Miss Crawley was fairly captivated by the sweet blushing face of the young lady who came forward so timidly and so gracefully to pay her respects to the protector of her friend.
Send for her to Park Lane, do you hear?" Miss Crawley had a good taste.
