Dear Len,
I think you a confused about the connection types and what you can achive with them. USB and WiFi are 2 completely different ways to connect to a network. Modems with USB connections only give you access to the Internet. Routers with WiFi give you access to the Internet and also to your local (private like at home or public like in a coffee shop) network. This is not a modem but it will connect to a modem and give you WiFi for you laptop (as long as your laptop is wifi capable and enabled, which most new laptops are) . I hope that helps.

I believe what she is speaking about of here is, A wireless router. All modems have an ethernet plug however all modems are not also routers
Or wireless. Any wireless router will create a home Wi-Fi network when used in conjunction with a cable or DSL modem

Not sure exactly what your referring to but to what i think your referring to as long as you have a cat 5 cable output on your modem you should be able to make your connection wireless by connecting the cat 5 cable from your modem to any router. Make sure your computer has wifi capabilities.if not you can buy a usb anteanna to allow your computer to connect wirelessly.

Question

will this router work with Comcast service?

I am forced to use Comcast in an area no one else covers. Comcast charges a rental fee for routers and I don't want to give them any more money than I have to. I am unfamiliar with the concept of purchasing my own router and do not know if every router works with every internet provider.

I got comcast for my son in law and they provided a combined router and modem.

I would check with them (or your bill) to see if you are paying a rental for the modem/router. If you are then ask them what modems/routers will work and price those out. Of course if you hve problems with your equipment it will be your fault. and when you have problems they will blame it on your equipment.

But you can check it out.

And any rate you can add exuipment if you have weak coverages in you house. WIFI bridges and power adapter type lans can be added.

What you need to be carful with is with your modem, the router should not be the issue. The modem is what receives and transfers the signal trough Comcast's system. Alternatively, you may choose to use a system that is both a modem and router. Comcast should give you a list of modems or modem/routers that are compatible with your service. I received a list from Time Warner; I believe Comcast should do the same.

Yes router works with any internet conection but it is not a modem. The modem is usually what you rent. A modem is what your cable wire plugs into and then this router plugs into thw modem to make you internet qireless or lan. You can buy a cable modem from bestbuy but askbthe geek which one works with Comcast

You are paying a rental for a modem(or gateway). If you get this you would still need to buy your own modem to avoid the charges. If you hook this up to your current modem(or gateway) you still need to pay the rental.

No it does not.If you already have a modem and internet connection, all you have to do is plug this router to the modem using one of the four ethernet (phone jack) ports. They can also be connected through the USB port if you prefer.

You always need a modem device to bring in you internet signal...either by cable, DSL (telephone line), or satellite.
A router is what will create a wifi signal for your internet....that means all you wireless devices can connect to this signal without having to directly connect them by ethernet line to your modem.

All in One gateway Devices work both as your router and modem, if you like to hassle with less wires and equipment, list these type of devices under consideration.

Question

Wired connection not working

I bought the Belkin AC750 to replace the N600 - the AC750 wireless component works fine, but none of the 4 wired ports seem to want to connect to the internet (and thus I have to setup the router wireless as well). I have tried the turn off/turn on and matched the set-up items to the N600 that works wired - I took the first AC750 back thinking it was a bad unit, but the second one will not work either. I have been a Belkin supporter from the beginning of my computing, but getting ready to try a different brand if it cannot be solved. I need wired ports as well - the unit has them, why don't they work?

If you didn't reboot the modem, after you hooked up the router, I suggest that you do that and retry setting up the router again. Some modems have a reset button on the back, some you have to unplug power for 30 seconds or so than plug it back in so it'll reboot.
Hope that works for you.

Question

Range

I bought this router to replace a 2011 Netgear N600 that went out. The wireless range of the Netgear reached my detached office and upstairs bedroom. This router does not.. The Best Buy Salesman said this router should have significantly better range. I am seeing far less range. Is there something I can try to fix the range issue before I return it? If I do return this one, any suggestions on what I should get to improve the range compared to the old Netgear?

First upgrade firmware. Make sure the power output level is high, I would try switching to low first then back to high to ensure it is changing. Make sure you are using the 2.4 GHz band since the 5GHz will not reach out as far as your old one.

When this one works - it has great range, however I've had terrible luck with Netgear Nighthawk routers dropping their signals and needing frequent resets. Their customer service requires you to send hardware failure routers back to them at your cost , and they send you back a refurb router that may or may not be in good shape.

I prefer the TP-Link Archer C8. It seems like its range on paper should be less, but it's actually faster, about the same range, and much more stable. It's also got a 2 year warranty.
