A router is a device for switching data packets through the network in order to send them to the destination data terminal equipment. A router routes packets by determining an optimal path based on its current view of the network and forwards the packet across the network boundaries to a destination using the optimal path. A network typically includes a collection of routers interconnected with each other. Each router in a network has an input side with at least one input connected to an adjacent router and an output side with several outputs, each of which is connected to an adjacent router. The router receives a data packet through its input and forwards the data packet to an adjacent router through one of its several outputs. A router uses a routing protocol to exchange information with other routers in order to maintain a consistent view of the network. Routers come in various sizes and capacities. High-performance routers may process packets for many thousands of different end users and provide feature rich, high bandwidth packet routing. A router typicallly includes ports for channeling communication throughout the network, a primary port facility having a single processor, and a router card for controlling the router ports. A router generally includes a base for supporting the router on a workpiece surface, a housing supported by the base and movable relative to the base, and a motor supported by the housing and operable to drive a tool element.
