A router is a piece of hardware that links two or more packet-switched networks or subnetworks. Its principal duties are to manage traffic across these networks by forwarding packets towards its appropriate IP addresses and to enables numerous machines to use the same Internet access.
A wired router links to PCs direct via wired connections. They have a port for connecting a modem to the internet.
It functions similarly to a wired router, except instead of cables, it uses wireless radio waves to communicate inside and across network settings.
A core router is a router that is meant to function at the core of the Internet. It must also be compatible with the routing protocols used for the core.
An edge router is a customized router situated at an interconnection point that connects an intranet to public network. Mostly it is only one within the organization.
