Routers Routers are even smarter than bridges and switches (routers operate at the Network layer a higher level in the OSI conceptual model than bridges and switches, which operate at the Data Link layer; we discuss all the layers of OSI in Chapter 5). A router uses a combination of hardware and software to actually "route" data from its source to its destination. ) Routers actually have a very sophisticated OS that allows you to configure their various connection ports.

Bus networks typically use coaxial networking cable (it looks like the same coaxial cable used for cable television, but it is actually slightly different) hooked to each computer using a T-connector. Each end of the network is terminated using a terminator specific to the cable type (if you use 50-Ohm cable, you use 50-Ohm terminators). Because the bus network is really just a collection of cable, connectors, and terminators, there is no amplification of the signal as it travels on the wire. This means that the size of the network will be limited by the maximum distance the cable type can actually move the signal that holds the data.
