Questions & Answers for NETGEAR - N750 Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router with 4-Port Ethernet Switch

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.

Get a Net Gear Range Extender,, I just seen one on sale this week, something like $50.00, this should do the job.

answer 2
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.)

I don't know about 2 routers, don't think you can, but you can get a range extender that will boost your signal and give you greater range.

Get a range extender. It adds the extra distance that you want. Otherwise get a router that has a greater range.

answer 6
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.

answer 4
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.

answer 11
This is just a router, therefore it DOES require a cable modem.

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