The Purpose Of A Wireless Router

Many customers aren't sure of the difference between a modem and a router. Most modems also serve as a router, but are limited to supporting only 4 devices. If you need to connect additional devices, then connecting one of your modem ports to a router will allow you to make those connections.

Internet Routers

A router is simply a small peripheral device (a little box) that allows multiple computers, laptops, smartphones, consoles, printers and other devices to use the same network.

Although wired routers still exist, most people will go with a wireless router for the convenience. You can still connect your device with a cable if you need, but modern devices usually come equipped with an internet wireless modem.
