In this article, we'll look at which piece of hardware connects your network to the internet.
After setting up your computer, the first thing you should do is connect to the internet so you can quickly check your important emails, stream videos, and talk to people around the world.
To connect your devices to the internet, you can use a Local Area Network and set up a wireless network, like Wi-Fi.
There are two kinds of LANs: wireless and wired. As the name suggests, wireless networks do not use wires. Instead, they use radio frequency technology.
Wireless LAN lets you connect to a network in a small area because it uses radio signals.
On the other hand, Wired LAN uses cables, network adapters, and fibers to connect to the internet.
In either case, you'll need a piece of hardware like a switch, hub, or router to connect everything.
