A residential gateway is a home networking device, used as a gateway to connect devices in the home to the Internet or other WAN.

It is an umbrella term, used to cover multi-function networking computer appliances used in homes, which may combine a DSL modem or cable modem, a network switch, providing LAN switching, a consumer-grade router, and a wireless access point. In the past, such functions were provided by separate devices, but by technological convergence, they have often merged into a single device.
