Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook
Thanks for your help,was wondering what the difference in the modem/adapter/and the router functions are? I'm not computer savy. they all sound to me to do the same thing. Do i need 1 of each?Thanks
1, A modem connects your devive to a communication line (phone line, cable line, broadband).
2, A router directs your traffic to the correct location on the correct network.
3, An access point allows you to connect to a network wirelessly.
4, A hub allows you to connect several pc's to form a network.
5, A firewall keeps the bad guys out
You need one of each. Typically you buy one box that has everything in it. It connects to the internet, firewalls that connection, allows you to connect 4 pc's (and more via the wireless) and routes that traffic to/from the internet as required. (all for under £100 - very impressive :) )
