How SetupRouter Router Detector Works

SetupRouter Router Detector looks at the "hops" required to get from your computer to the Internet. Each hop is an IP address. At each hop it attempts to communicate with a router. If it finds a router then it checks a keywords database to identify which kind of router it is.
