This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to wrap my head around the path the packets take on the internet.
I know that they hop between multiple routers until they get to their destination, but are these routers only in ISP's buildings, universities, etc. Or can they be any router around the world?
So would the router for my house be used as one of the many routers on the internet or would that be too dangerous?
I hope the question makes sense. Thank you.
