Learn what a router is, and when you would want to use one.
A router allows you to connect multiple devices to one single Internet connection. There are two main types of routers you can use: a broadband or wireless.
Connecting a broadband router
A broadband router creates a connection using an ethernet cable. To create an Internet connection using a broadband router, you will need to use an ethernet cable for each device – one cable goes into the wall, and one goes into each device.
This type of router allows your device to receive Internet access without having an ethernet connection going into the router from the device.
