Upwards? It's going to be a long trip... Got to go through Oregon, Washington and even British Columbia...
I suppose it'll be a direct flight to Anchorage, right? Or are you travelling through those states/provinces?

Interesting, interesting...

On this webpage, they suggest "rooter" as the standard pronunciation. You can even hear a yank pronounce it that way.

The trouble with the US, is that they just pronounce words the way they feel like it. There is no standard pronunciation. They don't learn to read the same way either. When they read "router", they probably decompose it into "rout" and "er" and "rout" looks like "out" so it's quite simple. Anyone else would probably see "rou" and then "ter".

even in the US, the two pronunciations can be heard. It's a bit of an East coast/West coast issue.
...but you don't get your kicks on 'rowt' 66!

How do you pronounce this word?
Not a very common word but more and more common these days...
In Canada, in my networking classes, noone would agree...does it seem obvious to you Brits?

Should Router sound like
"Rooter"
"Row ter" (row as in an argument)
?
for a route as in a route to get somewhere americans say rowte. Therefore british people should say rooter whilst americans say rowter.
