This item is a switch so I don't think its what you are looking for. Pretty sure you'd use OpenWRT on a router and then this switch downstream to operate a particular node in your network. For example I use it in my music studio in a closed network where several towers and devices share files to include hardware controllers for specific software. I use one port when I want to connect to the internet which connects this stand alone network to a router, which incidentally, is configured using OpenWRT.

Question

Do I need a computer / laptop to set this up?

I see that net gear has an app for my iPad that is compatible with this model. Do I need to initially set it up with a desktop/ laptop? Or should it just kind of plug in and go with a modem?

1 - Initial setup should always be done on a desktop or laptop. Doing this you'll do proper updates if necessary, and proper security setups.

Your 1st question: The answer is yes.
You have "or" question as 2nd question: Not a good idea. - Here's why - plugging yourself directly to a modem your open to public, public will see you easily. A modem then a router then you is better. That router creates a layer of door or wall so public will not see you directly.

Pretty much any router will work after the signal from the ISP is in your home. The modem will provide a ethernet port will go into the "internet" section of any router and a way u go.

answer 2
Yes. Think of it this way: the wireless router takes your internet access and distributes it (without wire) to your devices. However, you have to have a way to get access to the internet. So you have to have a modem to receive and forward your internet access. Some firms and some devices combine a modem with a wireless router. This device is the wireless part only.

This would depend on the Internet provider. Most of the main ones, like att or cox, yes you would need both and you would need to make sure the modem is suited for a cable internet connection. Atlink, another Internet provider, is different where you have to use their modem and they install it, in which case you would only need the router. Also, if you need a router and modem you can buy a combination which has both the modem and router built into one. I thought it was cheaper to buy one item that had both built in, but I had to switch Internet providers when I moved that had to use their modem and then had to buy a separate router because the combination would not work without cable provided Internet, so I would keep that in mind.

Yes, you do need a modem in addition to the router. I ended up buying my own modem to have a cheaper Internet bill with Comcast, since it typically costs about $8 a month to lease theirs.

If your WiFi Router isn't a Modem/Router combo, and if you don't already have a modem, then you will need a modem for internet access.

If you're getting a router solely for accessing LAN devices, say a server you have at home, then you don't need a modem for a local network.

Yes, you need a modem in addition to a WiFi router. The modem gets the Internet connection into your house and the WiFi router lets you connect multiple devices to your Internet connection. You Can by a combination modem and router, but I would not recommend it.

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: If you use cable, split the incoming signal, sending one to a cable box, and the other to a modem. The modem then connects to the router, and, depending if the cable signal also provides phone service, and the modem is equipped to decode telephony, the phone line is also connected to the modem output. Jacks on the back of the modem and instructions are easy to point you in the right direction as to which cords plug into which jacks.

If your ISP is providing a cable modem with an ethernet port out, then you should be able to use this as designed. Some ISP provide a cable modem/wireless router combo unit. This make installation a little trickier as you will have to disable the DHCP and wireless on the ISP's box.

Routers are just a gateway that reroutes traffic to a specific destination. In this case to a wireless signal. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) should not matter, as long as the router is connected to the modem.

Any router will usually work in tandem with a modem through a Ethernet cable from Modem to Router.

Unless your asking about Modem with Wireless Router or a modem overall you should contact your internet provider for a list.

answer 5
Internet Service Providers generally supply a device called a DSL modem or cable modem as part of their service. There is a jack on this device that supplies standard Ethernet (although the speeds may vary greatly). You could plug your computer directly into this box and have wired internet connectivity.

What the router does is to allow you to share your internet connection among multiple wired and wireless devices. Virtually every router in the consumer marketplace is designed to work with standard Ethernet. So, in answer to your question, there should be no compatibility issues between any router and any Internet Service Provider.

Yes.

The Verizon DSL modem might have a built in router ... If so, Verizon can help you disable the WiFi on their system and put the router into "bridge" mode.
