      Answer

      Unless you are planning on using your modem to navigate a ship or an airplane, then no it doesn't need a "rudder". It does however, need a router in order to direct the incoming internet signal to your different devices.

            Answer

            That is not your modem, the modem only brings the signal from your internet provider to your home. Your wireless router is responsible for varying signal strength in the home. Make sure you have a router capable of the speed this modem supports, and if it does you may want to try a range extender that plugs into a wall outlet to increase your range/signal farther from the router. If your router is older or you aren't sure of it's speed, you may just want to replace it as the technology improves rapidly.
