Routers job is to determine the best path for a packet across the network

The primary responsibility of a router is to forward packets to local or remote network by deciding the best path to send packets and then forward packets toward their destination using that path.

But in the computer’s world, it is a system for forwarding the information from some network node to another over an internetwork such as from a starting point (source) to its ending point (destination).

From the computer networking point of view, a packet is referred to a planned data unit. But certain computer communication links such as point to point communication don’t support data packets. In such cases, data is simply transmitted as an array of bytes or characters etc over the medium. Anyway, transformation of data into packets is a good way to achieve better bitrate of a communication medium in the course of sharing data amongst the users.
