Introduction to Broadband Router Technology A router is a device that forwards data packets from a source to a destination. Routers can work on Open System Interconnection (OSI) layer 3, which for- wards data packets using an IP address and not a MAC address. A router will forward data from the Internet to a particular computer on your LAN.
Introduction to Local Area Networking Local Area Networking (LAN) is the term used when connecting several com- puters together over a small area such as a building or group of buildings. LAN’s can be connected over large areas. A collection of LANs connected over a large area is called a Wide Area Network (WAN).
