Router is used to make the connection to the ISP. The switch is used to interconnect other working devices, the broadband modem is used to make the data connection to the ISP.

Broadband is a common term for a very fast internet connection. It allows you to download online entertainment such as videos from youtube, music clips, and pandora radio. the term braodband refers to the bandwidth characteristics. This is a technical term that lets you know exactly how fast your connection is. The general rule of thumb would be the bigger the better. However, a good connection is usually in the range of 700MB to 2Gb.

S-VIDEO is a better way to connect equipment together which will render a better picture than the common yellow video connection. Use the S-Cable if the equipment has the S-Jack.

In addition to an operational desktop, server or laptop computer you will need: For an older style dial up connection you will need a modem and active phone line. Your ISP will probably supply you with software to automate the setup. The more common broadband connection will require hardware from your ISP (DSL modem, Cable modem or wireless modem) and the proper connecting cables. Usually this will all come in a single package.

Wireless broadband internet can drastically increase the speed of your internet connection. Broadband Internet refers to a large amount of information sent through your connection through a modem, cable, satellite signal or other method of transmission. The exact speed of broadband varies depending on the medium through which it travels, but the average broadband connection will give you between 250 and 800 kbps. Extremely fast broadband connections may achieve speeds of 1 mbps or higher. Broadband Setting up wireless broadband Internet in your home can be a little complicated if you aren’t used to working with computers, but even novice computer users should be able to follow these steps and have their own wireless broadband Internet set up in no time. First, you must select an ISP (or Internet service provider) that offers broadband service in your area. Most phone and cable companies have a broadband option, such as Time Warner, Verizon, AT&T and more. Prices vary based on your area, provider, type of connection and service plan. Some services, such as cable, may not be offered in all areas. Research your options and choose the best plan for you. Once you have your connection set up, you must hook your Internet up to a wireless router. The router takes your wired connection and converts it into a wireless signal used by your Mac or PC. The most common way to do this is either through an ethernet or cable port. Simply connect the connection to your wireless router, plug in your power, and turn it on. There are different lights on your router, including those for Internet, Signal, etc. Each light lets you know that specific interface is working correctly. For more information, refer to the documentation that came with your wireless router. Now you must configure the wireless signal to work with your Mac or PC. This varies based off of which operating system and which particular version of that system you use. Go to your internet connection settings, select your wireless signal and add a password, if needed. Encrypting your signal with a password is always a good idea as it keeps people from stealing your connection.

AT&T is the broadband I have and most prices are similar. The benefits of broadband is that is the most common and popular form of internet used globally. The disadvantage is that the farther you are from the source the slower your internet is going to be.

Mobile broadband won't stay still over the next few years. Here are a few technologies that are coming our way:4G - the successor to 3G, 4G will see a huge increase in speeds.Femtocells - a mini mobile base station that sits in your house and connects to a fixed line phone to boost the speeds if you get poor coverage. As they require a fixed line it sort of defeats the point of a mobile broadband connection, but regardless they are expected to become more common

Yes, broadband is a type of service that gets you to the internet. It is generally faster then the other alternatives. And it allows phone calls to be made and received while connected to the internet. Other types of internet service are DSL and seems to have multiple names for the same thing. broadband is internet its just more common to describe the different types of broadband ex. "mobile broadband"

Dial-Up Internet: A dial-up Internet connection is the most basic and therefore the slowest type of Internet connection that you can get. Connection rates for dial-up modems tend to fall between 2,400 bps & 56,000 bps, which is incredibly slow for today's high speed Internet and applications. Dial-up modems are attached internally or externally to a given computer, and then connected using a standard telephone cable. All in all, dial-up Internet connections are outdated and representative of an older and more basic Internet. ISDN: ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) Internet connections are a type of digital telephone connection. ISDN connections straddle the line between basic narrowband Internet connections and more advanced broadband Internet connections due to the fact that Basic Rate Interface (BRI) ISDN connections transmit data right around the broadband cutoff at 100 Kbps. Although a better Internet connection option than dial-up, ISDN connections are still more or less outdated. Digital Cable Broadband: Cable broadband Internet connections are the most common type of broadband service. Connecting to the Internet via your cable television signal, cable broadband Internet connections offer data transfer rates of approximately 1.5 Mbps, far exceeding those offered by either dial-up or ISDN connection types. DSL: Digital Subscriber Line Internet connections are the second most common type of broadband service offering data transfer speeds similar to those of cable broadband (_1.5 Mbps). DSL services connect to the Internet via copper telephone wires. The difference between DSL and dial-up / ISDN is that a DSL Internet connection uses a high speed dedicated circuit filtering out standard phone calls and Internet signals. WI-FI: Wireless Fidelity Internet Connections are currently the hot commodity in high speed connectivity. They boast similar transfer speeds as digital cable and DSL broadband, but they don't require any type of physical connection in order to transmit/receive a signal. T-Carrier Broadband: T-Carrier Internet connections are some of the fastest available in the world and are generally reserved for use by large businesses and universities. T1 and T3 Internet connections are the most common T-Carrier types, and can cost as much as $800 and $15,000 per month respectively. T-1 lines boast speeds of 1.54 Mbps whilst T3 lines boast astounding speeds of around 45 Mbps. OC24: An OC24 (Optical Carrier level 24) Internet connection is a fiber optic connection capable of transferring data at a mind-boggling rate of 1.244 Gbps. This is pretty much the fastest Internet connection that you can get and generally serves as the backbone of various NAPS (Network Access Points).
