The router or the router, (from engl. router — the network device) on the basis of information on network topology and certain rules, making decisions on transfer of packets of the network layer (level 3 of the OSI model) between different network segments. The switch and the network bridge works at higher level, than. Usually the router uses the destination address specified in data packets and determines a way on which it is necessary to transfer data by the routing table. If in the routing table for the address there is no described route, the packet is discarded. There are also other methods of determination of a route of transfer of packets when, for example, the source address, the used protocols of top levels and the other information which is contained in headings of packets of the network layer is used. In the work routers exchange direct data packets, without enciphering use.
