• As stated before, switches and hubs usually only have servers connected to them that have been
configured as being part of the same network.

• Routers will connect into multiple switches to allow these networks to communicate with one


• Routers can also be configured to deny communication between specific servers on different
networks. They can also filter traffic based on the TCP port section of each packet. For example, it
is possible to deny communication between two servers on different networks that intend to
communicate on TCP port 80, and allow all other traffic between them. Routers therefore direct and
regulate traffic between separate networks, much like a traffic policeman.

• If you intend to route between networks, then for each network, you must reserve an IP address for
a router and make sure that the router is directly connected to the LAN associated with that

• In home networks, routers most frequently provide connectivity to the Internet using network
address translation or NAT.
