Routers And Switches

What are Routers and Switches?
Switches and routers are computer networking devices with different capabilities that let you connect one or more computers to other computers, devices or networks. Each has two or more ports (connectors). A connection is made when you plug in the cables. Routers are generally more sophisticated than switches.

What is a router?
Routers carry data packets along networks. They determine the best route between two hosts by using protocols to communicate and configure. Limited filtering occur.

What is a switch?
Switches filter and channel incoming data from any input port to the next specific output port, thereby sending the data packet on its way to the final destination.
