rut or raʊt

How do you say (a) route as a noun (route 66) (b) route as a verb (cars are routed to a service road) and (c) router as a computer device? And, as usual, where are you from, linguistically.

I have heard people say (a) as either root or r-out, the former somewhat more often, but (b) and (c) only as r-out(er). Yet online dictionaries seem to disagree - none of those I checked makes a distinction between the route-noun and route-verb.
