Layer 3 device used for inter network communication and routing purpose. Application device with ports, to which the computers and servers connect.Entry exit point of network. Is either a server with a gateway application installed or a device that connects a network of computers to another network
Routers are programmed with routing tables to determine the shortest possible path between Computer A and Computer B.If Network A wants to connect to Network B and vice versa, both networks must have gateways that provide exit and entry points for computers from the two networks to communicate.
Routing table contains a list of IP addresses that a router can connect to transfer data sophisticated enough to determine the number of possible “hops” from one computer to another.Gateways are important. They define the boundaries of network.
