    What is ROUTER?

    A device, transfers the data packets between networks. A router is connected to at least two networks, commonly two LANs or WANs or a LAN and its ISPís network. Routers are located at gateways, the places where two or more networks connect.

    Routers use headers and forwarding tables to determine the best path for forwarding the packets and they use protocols such as ICMP to communicate with each other and configure the best route between any two hosts. Very little filtering of data is done through routers.

    I still see people frequently having problems with wireless routers, despite the fact the technology has improved. But I suppose it all depends on what you want to do with it. If it's for home use, streaming a movie from a networked drive will cause you problems because it just isn't as stable as wired.

    on internet router is a device or in some cases it's a software in a computer,that determines the next network point to which the packets are to be forwarded...........
    in other words router si a device that forwards data packets along networks.
    wireless broadband routers look much the same as a wired router....

    Routers connect two or more logical subnets, which do not necessarily map one-to-one to the physical interfaces of the router.[1] The term "layer 3 switch" often is used interchangeably with router, but switch is a general term without a rigorous technical definition. In marketing usage, it is generally optimized for Ethernet LAN interfaces and may not have other physical interface types. In comparison, a network hub does not do any routing, instead every packet it receives on one network line gets forwarded to all the other network lines.

    Hi,


    A router is an Intermediate System (IS) which operates at the network layer of the OSI reference model. Routers may be used to connect two or more IP networks, or an IP network to an internet connection.

    A router is a networking device whose software and hardware are usually tailored to the tasks of routing and forwarding information. For example, on the Internet, information is directed to various paths by routers.
