Routers are network devices that forward packets of data between different networks. A router between an organisation's LAN and JANET will not have a direct connection to every other router on the Internet. It is however possible to set up that router to forward packets to their destinations by the most efficient path. The router does this by referring to its routing tables, which list all the possible paths that data can take to get from source to destination IP address. Each router on the path repeats this process until the data reaches its final destination.

Interfaces Router setup and the Janet Netsight Service Customers are expected to have an on-site IP router to connect their LAN to Janet. The choice of router will be determined by the capacity of the access link and the organisation's specific requirements. Organisations requiring informal advice on router products that have been successfully used by other sites on Janet should contact the Janet Service Desk for assistance.
