Course Content


A router on a stick configuration is a type of network topology, which incorporates a wireless router and a single antenna. The wireless router is connected to the antenna by an Ethernet cable. A router on a stick configuration allows for easy mobility, as the user only needs to carry the antenna with them.

The number of VLANs is not limited by the number of LAN ports accessible in networks that employ router on a stick because only one LAN connection is required for numerous VLANs. The physical position of the ports on the router has no bearing on network connection separation.

To set up a router on a stick configuration, you need to plug the USB wireless adapter into your computer or laptop. You then enter in your information for Wi-Fi name, security key, and password. You then open up the settings tab in your computer's control panel. From there you just have to click on "add network" and you should see the new wireless connection that you created pop up with all of the information that you inputted for it.

The router on a stick configuration is different from traditional routers because it offers more flexibility in terms of placement. It's difficult to place traditional routers in some locations due to their size and weight. With the router on a stick configuration, you can place both routers anywhere you like even if you don't have enough space for both of them.

The benefits of using a router configuration on a stick are:

  • Ease of setting up and use
  • Portable and wireless connection 3) No need for ethernet cable or extra cables while working
