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.

This isn't a model. It connects to Chater's modem and works like any other device. It gets an IP via DHCP.

answer 1
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.

Chances are good that yes, it will work with your DSL. You'll need to connect it via ethernet, but these devices are pretty agnostic (assuming somewhat contemporary equipment from Verizon).

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.

Question

2nd router for home

I was wondering, can 2 routers can be in the same house? I currently have a router through my cable company but the wifi does not cover the whole house. My TV room has very little, sometimes no wifi at all. Can a 2nd router be installed in my TV room? I would love to have one to streamline movies/video from my Roku & Amazon.

You should actually buy a WIFI extender such as a Netgear Model: WN2000RPT-100NAS. It works with your existing WIFI and eliminates any possible conflicts.

Currently I have two different wifi with two different names and passwords which they work at same time in my APT. I used the one which came from the internet provider and I bought another WIFI router devices with long cable so it work via the main router which is the internet source and connect it with the new device and worked with no problems. For me the new device which I bought is way better, so the answer to your question yes you can have two routers at once.

answer 5
Yes, You can install a second router in the home. You could get a range booster for the current router. You could also get a Better router like a NETGEAR - N750 Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router with 4-Port Ethernet Switch which would give you better signal for the whole house and mostly increase your thought-put over all. Do to the face the wireless/modems from service providers are no the best for wireless speeds. (Fun fact. Charter offers a wireless router but does not support the wifi only hardwire and does not guarantee any connection speed with it.)

answer 9
Wireless Extenders are very convenient but it's unreliable IMO due to relying on a weak signal. To get the most reliable connection, you can get a 2nd router and configure it as AP like the first answer or the easiest is to buy a dedicated WAP such as Ubiquity UniFi AP Pro.

Setup the router as a wireless access point. Option is under advanced, advanced setup, wireless AP. This sets the device in bridge mode greatly simplifying the network setup.

Yes, either from your internet provider or buy your own. I recommend the Motorola SB6141. It's about $90 at Target or BB. You just call them and give them the # off it and they activate it. If you get one from comcast or whoever you have to rent it at $8/month.

This is just a router, therefore it DOES require a cable modem.

It is not a combo cable modem + router, though those are available.
