    rooter in england

    rowter in america

    I say rooter.

    Well, I pronounce it rooter, but I'm not sure that's the correct way or not?

    Ive actually heard it spoken both ways. So i cant settle the arguement for you ! LOL Cant you call it a truce as your both technically kind of right?

    honestly i think either way is correct its like tomato/tamateto i personal say rowter

    Hes correct... Britain calls it a rooter Americans say Rowter... So technically your both right!! LOL

    I use rowter when reffering to a powertool

    and rooter for a wifi device!

    Any Europeans would say Rowter because they are taught American English and all have american accents if you hadn't noticed, obviously though we aren't European so say rooter :thumbsup:

    The correct term is 'rooter' as in 'En route'

    rooter rowter both right in my books i know them both anyway so if people use them in the right context it doesnt really matter to me, router (route' R or rou' ter)

    I say rooter too.
