Security Set-up of D-Link® Router
Exchanging data packets between one computer to another is the primary use of a router. The networking of computers requires a router. A router needs to be connected to minimum of two networks. Routers will be located at gateways. The gateway is a place where two or more networks are connected. The router keeps data to flow between networks and helps to keep the networks connected to the Internet. When data is sent between locations on one network or from one network to a second network, then these data is directed to the right location by the router. The router consists of headers and forwarding tables which determine the best path for forwarding the data packets. The router uses protocols such as ICMP to communicate with each other and to configure the best route between any two hosts.
