Do I Need to Buy a Router?

You do not NEED a router to use our Internet services; however, you will need a modem and you may WANT a router.

Modems:
Modems are an essential piece of equipment which is required to use our Cable and DSL internet services. Modems convert the analogue signals which pass over the phone/cable lines into digital signals that your computer can actually understand (and vice versa).

You NEED a modem to use our internet services.

Routers:
Routers (in terms of home network applications) are used to provide a single internet connection to multiple devices. Some modems come with built in "routers" such as our SmartRG SR505N; if you have one of these devices then you will not need a stand alone router.

If, on the other hand, you have a single port modem such as the Technicolor TC4300, Hitron CDA3, or ZyXel P660R, you may WANT to get a router in order to supply your internet connection to all of the devices in your home.
