Whether you are building, expanding, or administering a network, you probably need routers and bridges. Routers read addresses of data packets and forward, or “route,” them to the correct destination. Routers can connect multiple networks. Similar to routers, network bridges connect devices and route data... within the same network or split a network into two networks. A network bridge or a router connects to the network either wirelessly or physically by cable. Both types of access points help your computer bridge different devices and forward data transmissions to the right destination.
Connection offers both network bridges and routers from commercial-grade units from Cisco and Avaya to home network stalwarts like D-Link, Linksys, and Belkin. Choose a router or network bridge compatible with broadband or fast Ethernet, or with the data transfer rate, the number of ports or with as much flash memory as you need. Connection also has computer bridge and router accessories from CAT5 Ethernet cable to external radio antennas from vendors like Motorola.
Using routers and bridges to create or expand your network is easy with the right equipment. If you are a networking neophyte, knowledgeable Connection staff can help you select the equipment and navigate the protocols to create a robust home network. If you are a network administrator, Connection stocks both the access points and the parts that you can use. To accommodate all budgets, some routers and bridges offer leasing options. We will work with you to find the items that will best serve your business.
