    About how many devices can be connected on the Wifi and still run effectively   (7 Answers)

    My two roommates and I are looking for a new router and were wondering about how many devices we this network can support. (ie. 3 Laptops and then smartphones). We have heard good things about this router but don't want to have poor access as a result of buying too small of a router

        Answer

        Yes, this router works with internet and telephone simultaneously. I have the triple-play package (phone, internet, tv) from Cable Vision, and I am happy with this router's bandwidth/speed and performance.

        Does this router have to be connected to a modem?   (11 Answers)

        I do not own a desktop, only a laptop. Would this router work by simply connecting it to a cable connection and enabling wireless compatibility?

          Answer

          Yes, you must have a modem, which you'll get when you sign up for Internet service. You'll then get the signal to the modem, then connect the router. You'll also have to connect your laptop to the router initially, to configure it, set your wireless network name (SSID) and wireless password. You can then disconnect the cable, and surf wirelessly from then on.

              Answer

              Your list of connections are correct. Make sure to use the correct port from router to cable modem! A wireless laptop (or any other wireless device) can connect automatically IF the device is correctly configured to do so. This means naming your network on the router and setting up security. Use your desktop for these tasks. Files on one computer will not be visible ("shared") to other computers unless you specifically set it up to do so.

                  Answer

                  Sure you can dude, just get the router as a wireless point so don't turn off the wireless setting on the router and make sure to have your laptop wireless option on, usually this option is mark by a blue light. Now you need to get on your routers settings so you can change your password so you don't have your access point open or may be you would like to share your internet with your neightbor that is your choice. PS. Your desktop will have to have a Ethernet cable connected to your router and them you can play with the wireless connection on the other device (s) . good luck
