What Type of Router is Needed?

What type of broadband router do I need on a Pivit internet access service?

Pivit’s internet access service does not require a broadband router but a router is recommended. A broadband router enables multiple PC’s to share a single Internet connection by creating a home local area network (LAN). Routers can also provide some basic security to the home LAN.

A broadband router usually has a single WAN or Internet port and 1 or more LAN ports. Please see the illustration below. Any broadband router should work, however ADSL modem routers are not suitable. Click here for information on wireless routers.
