Fan help


I know how 2. switchs and one Light are wird.

And I know how 3. switchs and one Light are wired.

But I never understood how something works?

I know if you put a Fan up how it is wired to one switch.

But I would like to see a Photo or Graphic of how you wire the Fan to 2. switchs?

You know one switch turns the Light on and off and the opther switch turns the Fan on and off.

PS
I know you have to leave the Fan on?

If you buy a Fan and you want to use just one switch to work the light and the Fan on it is this the same type of Fan you will get even if you want to wire 2. switchs to it to use the Light and Fan alone?
