A router is the link between your home network and the internet, and allows you to connect the online devices in your home to the web. Routers let you connect to the internet wirelessly or with a cable.
Wired: If wired, most devices connect using an Ethernet cable. This is a universally compatible cable that works with computers, games consoles, TVs and much more. It provides a fast internet connection with excellent stability.
Wireless: Smartphones, tablets, laptops and other portable devices connect using WiFi, which provides access to the internet without any cables or wires. As long as you remain within the reach of the router, you’ll receive a quick, stable web connection wherever you are.
