  • The purpose of a router is to route packets where they need to go, and now days one of the main purposes is to provide NAT or network address translation which translates your private ip address to one that is routable on the internet.And many routers also provide firewall services.
  • Just to add on what Kiss said. A router also connects different topologies of networks together. Each topology has its own protocols. The router converts the packets from one protocol to another.
  • "A router is a device that extracts the destination of a packet it receives, selects the best path to that destination, and forwards data packets to the next device along this path. They connect networks together; a LAN to a WAN for example, to access the Internet. Some units, like the Cisco 1800 (pictured), are available in both wired and wireless models." "A more precise definition of a router is a computer networking device that interconnects separate logical subnets." Source and further information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Router

  • router is the device which is used to route the packet.it is layer 3 device.A router may create or maintain a table of the available routes and their conditions and use this information along with distance and cost algorithms to determine the best route for a given packet
  • Iwnit has the best answer. A router's primary function is to route packets over the Internet or a private network (the cloud). The TCP/IP protocols are the primary means to do this. A router connects the Internet or private network usually refereed to as a Wide Area Network (WAN) to the Local Area network (LAN) of a business or home. Most routers have switches or hubs built into them to support the LAN side of the network.
