Definitely. I didn't really start using PCs until the late 90's, but I remember dial-up. I had no idea how any of it worked, and I wasn't really that interested in learning. But recently I got Network+ certified and I'm working on A+ now (kind of a backwards order, but oh well) and before I started studying I was pretty much clueless, too. I have a much greater appreciation now for how the internet works. I had thought a router was always what we call it today. But like you said, in reality what we call a router now is actually a lot of different things. It's hard to keep it all straight if all you really want is for things to work without having to know much about it. And if that's what you want, that's all cool. Unfortunately advancing standards makes it confusing for people.
