Are you having internet connection issues ?
Do you turn your modem-router on and off to refresh the connection a couple of times a week or is your connection constantly dropping out ?
It is usually time then for a new one.
- The modem is a device that provides access to the Internet.
- The modem connects to your ISP, which provides your Internet service
- The router allows multiple computers to join the same network
In some cases I have found they can last about 2 years on average and we need to remember that they are in effect ” dumb computers ” .
The new wifi routers are all AC ( they have taken over from N , G etc ) now which means the signal they transmit will go further in your home or office.
Should you take the router from your ISP ? In some cases yes , but some are not up to the standard that you can buy.
