What is the difference between a router and a router
The choice of technical devices for organizing a home wi-fi network can sometimes put a buyer at a dead end. For example, not every user who chooses a technique in the store will immediately say how the router differs from the router. Although both those and other devices are presented on the shelves of computer stores in the range.
At first glance it may seem that the router is the same as the router. And indeed it is. The task of each device is to connect several computers, tablets and other mobile devices to an existing apartment or home network. Both the router and the router have the same device - one jack for connecting the connector and several ports (usually not less than four) for the devices.
They also work on the same principle - they receive a signal from the computer that entered the network, after which or allow him access to the Internet (if it is added to the table of recipients of the signal), or refuse.
Differences - linguistic
What are the differences? They are mostly linguistic, not technical.
Feel the difference between the two devices can be determined by the concepts. "Router" is a transliteration from the "router". The word came to us from the English language, and you can translate it into Russian only as a "router". So the first difference between the two concepts is in the origin of the names. One is simpler and "ours the other is tricky and foreign.
On this distinction does not end, but only begin. The use of synonyms varies depending on the context. "Router" is more suitable for documentation, "router" - for colloquial speech.
It is interesting that routers in equipment stores are most often called devices used to organize networks in companies and in production. While devices for home sellers refer to as household routers.
Paradoxically, as a result of all this verbal leapfrog technical means differ and at a price. Routers in stores are more expensive than routers. Apparently, due to its loud foreign name..
