Routers are those which singularly present in a network deciding the best route path for the packets to have seamless communication with different networks whereas, switches are those that connect devices on a computer network by using packet switching to receive, and forward data to the destination device.

Router and Switch both works in the different layers of the OSI Model i.e Data Link Layer and Network Layer. But nowadays we have switches which can work in Layer 3 too.
