The advantages of a router are that data can be transferred between different networks you can use both LAN and WAN connectivity. The router has many different connections which connect to lots of architecture and media for the internet and internal use within an organisation. It is useful for sending data across because it determines the best route and paths to get to the right data to the target node. Router has domain which brings less collisions.

The disadvantages of a router are that the cost will be higher as it is more expensive than a hub, bridge & switch. It has a high bandwidth for when interconnected with multiple buildings or when doing an update.  The router will have a bigger latency when there are more packets to be filtered.
