A NET port, also known as an internet port, is an Ethernet port on a router that can be configured as either a LAN (local) or WAN (wide area network) port.
This means that a NET port can either connect devices on a local network, or it can connect the router to the internet. A computer or other network device, such as a switch or router, that has an RJ-45 Ethernet port can be connected to a LAN port.
On a local network, all client computers, servers, and other network devices are connected using LAN ports.
What is the difference between a LAN and WAN port?
A LAN port is used to connect devices on a local network, while a WAN port is used to connect to the internet.
Can a NET port be used as both a LAN and WAN port?
Yes, a NET port can be configured as either a LAN or WAN port depending on the user’s needs.
Do all routers have NET ports?
Most modern routers have at least one NET port, although some may have multiple for added flexibility.
A NET port is a versatile Ethernet port on a router that can be configured for either LAN or WAN use. It provides a convenient way to connect devices on a local network or connect to the internet.
