A network is a group of computers that are linked together so they can share resources and data. A networking device is a piece of hardware that connects your computer to the network.

A networking device is a piece of hardware that connects your computer to a network. This can be as simple as a router, or it could be something more complex like an access point.
There are many different types of networking devices; some examples include:
- Routers (wired and wireless)
- Switches (wired)
- Access points
Networking devices fall into six categories:
The first category is the Ethernet cable, which you may recognize as the flat, flexible plastic cord that connects your computer to the router or modem. You’ll also find it in wired printers and other devices that need to communicate with each other over a network.
Next comes the router, which acts as an intermediary between one or more networks (or subnets) and your home’s Internet connection. The modem provides access to a wide area network (WAN), like the internet itself; it converts signals from digital into analog format so they can travel over telephone lines or coaxial cables that connect directly into homes or businesses through wall jacks known as “telephone ports.”
Next we have switches: these devices make sure that data packets get where they need go while optimizing bandwidth usage by directing traffic according to its source and destination addresses–a process known as packet switching or bridging traffic flow between two different networks
Ethernet cables are a type of cable used to connect devices together. They are made up of copper wires and plastic insulation, which surround an inner core that carries data signals. Ethernet cables can be …
