cable/DSL gateway

A device that connects multiple computers to a cable or DSL line for Internet access. Also called a "residential gateway," "modem/router," "home gateway" and "Internet gateway," it includes a modem for the cable or DSL service, an Ethernet switch to connect (typically four) computers by wire and a router. The device may also include an access point for Wi-Fi, in which case it is a wireless router and modem in one unit. See wireless router, cable modem and DSL modem.
