If you’ve used the Internet, you can thank a router — it’s the thing that gives a device the power to surf the web. Watch to learn what a router is and how it works.
A router passes information between computer networks and allows your devices to connect to the Internet, whether it’s your computer, phone, or tablet. A router inspects a data packet’s destination IP address, then figures out the best way for it to get to its destination.
Routers are a common type of gateway; hundreds of routers can be involved in forwarding a single packet from network to network until it reaches its destination. Routers can either be physical, stand-alone devices or virtual routers that use software to perform the same functions. Network devices like wireless access points and switches can also include built-in routers.
