What is the difference between a modem and a router?


Daily, many of our clients are adding devices in their homes that require an Internet connection. This often requires upgrading their home network. Simply, the more devices you connect to your home network, the better your network needs to be. For those that are facing this issue for the 1sttime, we would like to briefly explain the differences between your modem and your router. Your modem is that device that connects your home router the Internet using a cable from your provider, in most cases, the cable or phone company. A modem alone will not connect you to the Internet. This is where your router comes in. The router creates the wireless network in your home that connects all of your devices to the Internet. This connection is wireless but routers all provide for wired connections. To improve the home Internet, speed and better connectivity, you need to upgrade your router, not the modem. Most new routers have multiple antennae and great capability to handle multiple laptops, computers, tablets, cameras, etc. Your router also allows different devices within your home to communicate with each other, for example, printing to a wireless printer or using an app to control your audio system. Location of your router is also critical to your network’s performance. For best results, locate your router in the center of your home.
