A wireless gateway combines the functions of a modem and a wireless router in one piece of equipment. It uses a signal transmitted on a combination of coaxial and fiber-optic cable to connect your computer to the Internet and to network your equipment wirelessly in the same way as a wireless router.
Common applications for Wi-Fi include Internet and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phone access, gaming, and network connectivity for consumer electronics such as televisions, DVD players, and digital cameras.
