Modem VS Router: What Is The Difference?
A modem includes a physical connector for the coaxial cable installed in your home. That cable typically exits the home through a hole, and is tunneled around and/or underneath the house until it reaches the Cable Distribution Box mounted on your home’s exterior. An additional cable buried underground connects this box to the service provider’s node mounted on a nearby utility pole. That said, the Internet feed leaves the utility pole, arrives at your home’s Cable Distribution Box, and ends at the modem’s coaxial cable connector. After that, your output depends on the type of modem your ISP provided you.
Modem VS Router: How It All Works
If all of this is confusing to you, just imagine a high-speed train. It enters your home through your (modem), travels to the train station (router) at full speed, and is redirected (via the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands) to a destination (connected devices). If the destination is a wired connection, then it moves at full speeds. If the destination is wireless, the speed is based on how many tracks (streams) it can use at once. Thus, the amount of congestion these tracks must penetrate, and the distance between the train station and the destination. Will equate to the train loosing speed the further it travels away from the station. Put simply, you are not going to get Gigabit speed (1,000Mbps) if you are only paying for a 300Mbps connection. Likewise, you are also not going to get the 300Mbps you are paying for if you do not have the right router!
