Introduction

For years people had only a single PC machine in their household. Recently, the price of hardware has dramatically dropped. This allowed for PCs to be bought or build at the fraction of the cost. That presented a unique challenge, never existed before. How does one bring the data together? Share the Internet conection? Together with Windows family of operating systems from Microsoft, the manufacturers had caught up with the market demands and introduced a hardware device called a router. This box contains multiple conection outlets called ports for up to 8 machines on higher priced models. Quite often the auto configuration works fine. Other times it does not. Things are further complicated when routers support Wi-Fi protocols, in addition to regular wire (Ethernet) type.
