Your household will be connected to the Internet with the incredible power of 2Gbps bandwidth aggregated over your entire network. This setup will give you a single network on a single IP Address, for easy sharing of files, printers, videos and music.
The integrated modem-router, will have 4 available wired connections, each transmitting at a maximum of 1Gbps speed. You may plugin 4 computers or internet-enabled devices (e.g. Smart TVs, PS4, etc) and enjoy a combined total of 2Gbps bandwidth.
In order to get Wi-Fi at home, you can connect any access point or router to any of the wired connections mentioned above. This will also increase the number of wired connections available for even more computers or internet-enabled devices. Do note that the router(s) in this case has to be configured as an Access Point (AP).
1. What third party router can I use in conjunction with the integrated modem-router?
You can use any third party router that can be set as an Access Point (AP).
2. My speedtest isn't going beyond 1Gbps, is this normal?
Yes – Each wired connection on the integrated modem-router, and on the third party router, cannot go beyond 1Gbps. However, the combined total bandwidth of all devices in your household is 2Gbps.
3. I want to connect more than 1 third party router to the modem / router in order to get better Wi-Fi coverage throughout my house, is this possible?
Yes – The diagram here is an example of a simplified setup. So long as all your third party routers are configured as Access Points (APs), you can connect up to 4 of them to the integrated modem-router to gain huge Wi-Fi coverage and a large number of wired connections
