Networking At Home
A home data network is an electronic communications system linking all of your devices to the Internet and to each other. A home data network can utilize both wired and wireless technologies, connecting all devices to a central point called a hub or a switch.
A router is a device that forwards data packets along networks. A router is connected to at least two networks, commonly two LANs or WANs or a LAN and its ISP's network. Routers are located at gateways, the places where two or more networks connect.
A network switch (also called switching hub, bridging hub, officially MAC bridge) is a computer networking device that connects devices together on a computer network by using packet switching to receive, process, and forward data to the destination device.
Whether you use have Internet service from your cable company or DSL service from your phone company, the Internet modem converts their raw signal into one that you can use throughout your house.
