    Difference between LAN Ethernet Ports and WAN Ethernet Ports


      Hello Guys,


      Something thats bothered me about LAN and WAN ports on a Router is the Cisco 1841 datasheets specifies that the it has 2 onboard LAN ethernet ports. The 2900 series routers specify WAN ethernet ports. Whats the difference?


      An IP address can be assigned to the Cisco 1841 port as well the 2900 Series routed ethernet ports.
