Sokay Jim, it's just some of us learn a few things over 20 years of use 
<BG>. A Router, in this instance, is a gizmo that enables you to route 
more than one computer to the same function, like a modem, a printer 
etc. An advantage for security is that most come with some form of built 
in software that fools the casual hacker. As Rogers cable, like Bell 
etc. is always on a router is another blocker to the hacker.
Routers come in all sorts of configuration, such as one port, 2 ports, 4 
ports (the most common sold now, and 4 ports plus a printer port. HTH.
