What is the differences of router and switch?
a router is a automatic switch .see a router can't work without a switch cause it is through the switch that a router gets it energy
The difference between a router and a switch has to do with the layers of the OSI model that they reside in. A switch is a layer 2 device, which means it relies on the MAC (physical) address for switching packets. A router is a layer 3 device, using the network (logical) address. A router also can forward packets to another network; a switch does not do that. In addition, a switch forwards all broadcast… Read More
A switch cannot function as a router. But you can plug a switch in to one of the ports on the router if you need additional ports.
we use straight cable to connect between the router and switch as router and switch are different devices.
Just run a standard RJ45 network cable from each switch into one of the switch/LAN ports on the router. If the router only has one switch/LAN port you'll run one cable from the router to the first switch and a second cable from the first switch to the second switch.
the straight cable can connect switch with router
Router is a layer 3 and switch is a layer 2 device. Router connects many networks together and Switch connects many devices to a network.
You cannot use a switch as a router. While externally they appear similar, a switch lacks many of the capabilities of a router. One (and probably most important) of them is NAT - Network Address Translation, which makes a network within the router separater from networks outside the router.
Any information that is within the line of path of the router or switch is the network information that you can glean from issuing commands on a router or switch.
the cable b/w router and switch is cross over
Why does the switch between Host and the router not require configuration with an IP address to forward packets?
If a switch is connected to a router then the MAC address of the router is known to the switch through that port. A host takes advantage of this by using the default gateway address (the address of the router) which the switch "knows" by its lookup table. Therefore, the switch can learn the address automatically and no configuration is necessary.
core switch has a router and usually you can see it in server room ,but the normal switch does not has a router .... Mohammed Baharoon Alhashmi (UAE)
You can't. It doesn't have the functionality that a router does.
Nowadays virtually any wireless router. When you get a router you usually have about 4 lan ports (switch) and wireless router in the same box.
A switch port is pretty much a Hub, and Router the same, But has security, and can be wireless
Yes, in fact, that is the most common thing to do - hook an Ethernet or FastEthernet port, in the router, to a switch.
router is wan device but another side switch is LAN device . Routers are used for filtering the traffic. Switch works on data link layer and router works on network layer . Switch use to connect two or more computer and router use to connect two or more networks.
switch the printer on before the router
How do you connect a wireless access point to a network switch that gets Internet from a cable modem?
There are at least two ways. First, you connect the wireless router directly to the cable modem, and then the switch in the wireless router. You have to connect the cable coming from the modem in the wireless router internet port. Second, you connect the wireless router to the switch, again the cable coming from the switch you have to connect on the wireless router internet port. It's better to put the wireless router just… Read More
You don't it could be on your router the PS3 does not have a router
Turn off dhcp in router settings.
Have each LAN run to a separate switch. Then connect each switch to an interface on the router.
when you are connecting same devices like computer to computer or switch to switch or router to router to use cross over cable. when you are connecting different devices like computer to switch or computer to router to use straight cable.
How can 10 computers on an ethernet network using a switch and 5 on a wireless network share an internet connection?
You need a router. The cable modem connects to the modem's uplink port and the switch can connect to any available port on the router. This wll enable any computers connected to either the router or the switch to access the internet. Through a Wireless Access Point/Gateway/Router. U can connect ur switch w/it's 5 wired pcs to the Router and ur wireless pcs to the router.
Connect a router to the DSL modem, and if necessary add a switch to the router. Then connect all of your systems to the switch and the router.
Does Windows Small Business Server 2008 require computers to be connected to a Switch before being connected to a router or is just having a router sufficient?
It does not require any particular switch or router you can use either.
Connect the broadband connection to a router, and connect the router ports to the individual systems. If necessary, extend the number of ports on the router by attaching a switch to one of the router ports and attaching multiple clients to the switch.
Yes, it can.
A layer 3 switch is still a router, but often does not have all the "features" of something that might be labeled a router. A layer 3 switch is often used between subnets inside a LAN whereas a router is typically used between a LAN and a WAN (regardless of whether or not the link uses NAT or has a firewall). A Layer 3 switch is best suited to small networks or workgroups; a router… Read More
Yes, it's possible. Connect the wire coming from the switch in the internet port in the router.
Which of the interfaces on the router would be used by the switch if the switch needs to connect to the router?
routers basicaly has 2 ports, one is uplink and 1 is downlink, is any1 is not assigned , anyone can be assisgned for connecting to the switch
To connect two devices of the same type together. e.g. To connect a router to another router, a switch to another switch or a computer to another computer. If you are connecting diferent devices together, such as a router to a switch, a straight through cable should be used.
A wireless router.
Unplug the router for 5 min and then plug it back in.
A switch connects machines within the same subnet. A router connects different networks or subnets. An Ethernet switch works at layer 2 of the OSI model; it forwards frames based on the MAC address (the serial number of the network card). A router works at layer 3, using information from the IP header. However, a router also has to do many of the same things a switch does.
A Layer 3 switch can act as a router.
A Layer 3 switch is optimized for fast data handling; a router is optimized for accurate data delivery.
Like a switch, a router places nodes that are connected to it in separate collision domains.
Yes. Just connect one switch strait into the router. Then hook the other three switches into the first switch. -DJ Craig
An L3 switch is sort of like a high powered router. These switches use hardware to route packets of information, as opposed to a regular router which uses software.
Yes, switch as well as hub and router are network devices.
To connect two devices of the same type together. e.g. You would use a crossover cable to connect a router to another router, a switch to another switch or a computer to another computer. If you are connecting diferent devices together, such as a router to a switch, a straight through cable should be used.
An ingress router is a Label Switch Router that is a starting point (source) for a given Label Switched Path (LSP). An ingress router may be an egress router or an intermediate router for any other LSP(s). Hence the role of ingress and egress routers is LSP specific. An egress router is a Label Switch Router that is an end point (drain) for a given Label Switched Path (LSP). An egress router may be an… Read More
An ISR provides the functionality of a switch, router, and firewall in one device
For many businesses, they may have hundreds of computers that need to connect to the internet. In order to do this, they need each computer connected to a switch. The switch will forward frames within the Local Area Network (LAN) and anything that needs to be sent out to the Internet will be sent to the router. The main purpose of the switch is to connect many computers or nodes to one device which in… Read More
What is the similarities and differences between the windows routing table and the router routing table?
That depends entirely on what Operating System the router is running
crossover cables must be used between 2 devices from the same level like (pc & pc - Pc & router - router & router) but strait through cable used between 2 different levels like (pc & switch - router & switch )
router operates on Layer 3 and can be used as a switch
Switch it off and wait 5mins then switch it back on again
More like an antennae.
