    Think of NAT like a splitter for an IP address. It lets you have one IP on your connection and split it among many devices. A Linksys router is a good example of a device that uses NAT.

    No, that would be subnetting.

    NAT is Network Address Translation.

    Subnetting lets you split a range of address into multiple separate networks.

    NAT lets you split one public address into infinite private addresses.
