Insight to Routers

One of the tasks that need professional network engineering is setting up networks in offices and enterprises. Where do you start? Start with a router.

A router is, basically, a networking device that transfers or forwards data packets, computer to computer, computer to the internet. In other words, a router creates a network of computers.

In an office where there could be more than a few computers used – a router helps in creating the network group and distributing the internet connection to the computers within the network.

What Can Routers Do?

When information needs to get to another destination, data packets are used by the Internet Protocol (also known as the IP) to transmit data through an online connection. It is then received by another computer on the other end. This process is possible through a network device – the router.

When a router is connected to a modem, it duplicates the address of the modem in order to receive internet service in its network. A router would then, assign IP addresses to the computers connected to it. This is to give the computers objective identifications in the network.

When a computer is connected to the router, through an ethernet cable or wirelessly, they will also be able to receive internet service.

With the router, you can share files and documents with all the users within the network you are connected to.
