So, there will obviously be sharing of files between these personnel and for this they need network. Like this when you take the case of different computers in an office, files are to be shared between one computer to another and this work is done efficiently by the network called as router. Router will also be helpful in offering Internet connectivity to each of the computer in the network. However, sometimes users may come across the problem of router not connecting to the internet.
