The existing home network has two laptops, two desktop, one network storage drive, VoIP phone, one wireless printer and one network enabled TV. They all are connected to wireless router and router is connected to cable modem. Cable modem is connected to ISP network to get connected to INTERNET. In my home network there many devices are participate to work as a network and share media, data and information across the home network as well as access internet connection via wireless router. Wireless router: A wireless router is a device that performs the functions of a router but also includes the functions of a wireless access point and a network switch. They are commonly used to allow access to the Internet or a computer network without the need for a cabled connection. It can function in a wired LAN (local area network), a wireless only LAN (WLAN) or a mixed wired/wireless network. Most current wireless routers have the following characteristics: LAN ports, which function in the same manner as the ports of a network switch A WAN port, to connect to a wide area network, typically one with Internet access.

Cable modems are primarily used to deliver broadband Internet access in the form of cable Internet, taking advantage of the high bandwidth of a HFC and RFoG network. In network topology, a cable modem is a network bridge that conforms to IEEE 802.1D for Ethernet networking (with some modifications). The cable modem bridges Ethernet frames between a customer LAN and the coax network. Technically, it is a modem because it must modulate data to transmit it over the cable network, and it must demodulate data from the cable network to receive it. Wireless printer: et a wireless-enabled printer to work with your existing wireless network, and take advantage of these benefits: Mobility: Print from anywhere in your home using a notebook PC. Less clutter: Say goodbye to cord clutter and the length of printer cables determining the placement of your office equipment.
