Router WiFi Access Points: Grid
Posted in the Science / Technology Forum
#1 Feb 23, 2013
Today, you can find devices on the market called Wireless Routers which enable households to connect all computers in a home to the Internet wirelessly through air waves.
Routers perform the "traffic directing" functions on the Internet. Home routers have been called "residential gateways" that facilitate the delivery of broadband (high-speed) Internet networks.
A wireless router is a "residential gateway" device that performs the functions of a router but also includes the functions of a wireless access point and a network switch. It is commonly used to provide access to the Internet or a computer network. It does not require a wired link, as the connection is made wirelessly, via radio waves (electromagnetic frequencies harnessed through resonance filtering). Some wireless routers also include a DSL or cable modem in addition to the other components (source: Wikipedia).
The vast array of routers today distributed across hotels, business offices, and residential homes effectively comprises a network grid that requires interference detecting anti-freeze virus stabilizers.
The grid delivery qualities of the home router reflects the new age connectivity marketability of the media-themed Hollywood (USA) movie "Network" (1976).
