Modem is short for "Modulator / Demodulator." It is a hardware component that allows a computer or other device, such as a router or switch, to connect to the Internet.

It converts or "modulates" an analog signal from a telephone or cable wire to a digital signal that a computer can recognize.

Similarly, it converts outgoing digital data from a computer or other device to an analog signal.
