Providing The WiFi You Need
An Access point is a device that creates a wireless local network. A high-speed Ethernet cable runs from a modem to an access point, which transforms the wired signal into a wireless one. Wireless connectivity is typically the only available option for access points, establishing links with end-devices using Wi-Fi.
A router is a network device that serves two main functions: 1 - it connects multiple computers, phones, tablets, or other devices to form a managed local area network, and 2 - it provides Internet access via WiFi or Cable to all of the compatible devices that are connected to the router.
