Networked markerlights can be used by the same team that shoots them.
Means, you can have a networked markerlight in the Markerlight Drone and the other members of the whole team will have different weapons. Then the markerlighter drone can hit some enemy and the other members of the team can shoot using this Markerlight (with the respective bonuses). So team A marks and also team A uses the marked targed for bonuses.

With normal markerlight team A has to mark someone and only other teams may use the marked target to gain bonuses (team B and C and so on...)

The table on pg. 29 of the codex refers to both marklights and network marklights. The only difference is that network marklights are shot before the rest of the squad (usually a squad shoots all it's weapons at the same time). Because they are shot before the rest of the squad, that squad can now make use of those marklight tokens.

For example, say I have a pathfinder squad with railrifles. Because all shooting is done at the same time, I can never use the marklight tokens (from the regular marklights) to benefit the railrifles in the same squad.

But if I add some network marklight drones, those drones shoot first. I can then use those tokens to benefit the railrifles, while the other marklights shoot simultaneously.

how about the markerlight target designators the pathfinders are equipped with?

They're not networked.
