How to add your OWN router?

Message 1 of 2

Problem:  Upgraded from 15/5 to 50/25.  Wifi current tops at 23/23 with current VZ Router.

 

Question:  How to upgrade router?  Do i just buy a Wireless N Broadband Router (http://www.amazon.com/Medialink-Wireless-N-Broadband-Internal-Antennas/dp/B00A3YN0Z0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=U...).  Do I just Install it by connecting it to the VZ router via ethernet cable?  VZ router is connected via coax cable, but I do not see any routers with a coax cable in?

 

Thank you.

Yes you can, see http://www.dslreports.com/faq/12506

 

and you can use a second router as a MOCA adapter, extending your LAN into a room where you have only a coax connection.

 

Can I get an ethernet connection in a room with only coax?

 

If you have any questions, please ask.
