  • Page 6: Introduction To Broadband Router Technology

    Introduction to Broadband Router Technology A router is a device that forwards data packets from a source to a destination. Routers forward data packets using IP addresses and not a MAC address. A router will forward data from the Internet to a particular computer on your LAN. The information that makes up the Internet gets moved around using routers.
  • Page 7: Introduction To Local Area Networking

    Introduction to Local Area Networking Local Area Networking (LAN) is the term used when connecting several computers together over a small area such as a build ing or group of buildings. LAN’s can be connected over large areas. A collection of LAN’s connected over a large area is called a Wide Area Network (WAN).
  • Page 8 Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) PPTP uses proprietary means of connecting two private networks over the Internet. PPTP is a way of securing the information that is communicated between networks. PPTP secures information by encrypting the data inside of a packet IP Security (IPSec) IPSec provides a more secure network-to-network connection across the Internet or a Wide Area Network (WAN).
