A modem or router is a way of connecting to the internet. You could use how police directs traffic with a whistle (whistle seeing sound you cannot see just as signal in router is) while traffic lights are out. You could use a super hero (one that can fly and one that has to use a vehicle like spider man and superman). Depends on the eight year old. Think of someone you know, what they like, and plan to explain it to them that way.
