It is one kinds of devices  which connects two or more pc to establish a network or to connect with the internet.  Commonly connect two or more LAN or wlan or ISP. It passes data packets. We can see that there are many types of router but main two categories one is wired router and wireless router. So we needed it to connect our computer with network of other computers. Maintaining a connection between two or more computer or to connect with the internet we need router. Without router broadband connection can only give to one computer. If we want to know more information about router we can go the following sites: http://www.howstuffworks.com/router.htm.

A router is a specialized computer connected to other networks. It runs a software that allows device to move data from one network to another. The primary  function of a router is connecting networks together and keeps certain kinds of broadcast traffic under control by breaking down large number of hosts into smaller networks.

Today, people are connecting to the internet,it is a very large network so you need a router to connect your  network to internet. It shares internet connections to other computers, laptops, or devices with network capabilities. It does not provide internet but distributes your broadband connections to other devices.
