Also Know, what is the difference between a router and a modem? The difference between a modem and arouter is that a modem connects to the internet,while a router connects devices to Wi-Fi.

Do you need a router if you have a modem?
The router sits in between your Internetconnection and your local network. But you can't connectdirectly to the Internet with just a router. Instead, yourrouter must be plugged into a device that cantransmit your digital traffic over whatever type of Internetconnection you have. And that device is amodem.
