What is a Firewall?
If you have been using the internet for any length of time you have probably heard the term firewall.

What is a router?
Basically, a router works like a traffic cop deciding which device gets access to the network next. A router connects computers, printers, and other devices to a network which is connected to the internet. More technically, a router is a critical device that keeps data flowing between networks and keeps the networks connected to the internet. When data is sent between locations on a network or from one network to another network, the data is always transferred and directed to the correct location by a router.
