what is really a brouter and why is it important to know for the N+ exam?

this is what i have known so far about it, brouters are used on networks that have both routable and non-routable protocol.

and this also:

device that functions as both a router and a bridge. A brouter understands how to route specific types of packets, such as TCP/IP packets. Any other packets it receives are simply forwarded to other network(s) connected to the device (this is the bridge function). .....so as i see it only understands TCP/IP and that is why is not a real router?

thanks for the help icon_wink.gif
