The Usage of Modem Router

Modem router is commonly used to set up home network with DSL or Cable broadband Internet but without the need of having stand alone modem. That means if you have modem router, you don’t have to purchase separate DSL or cable modem for connecting to Internet.
Usually it’s wireless or wired router that comes with built-in modem feature, so you could connect one end of the phone cable to the DSL or cable port on the back of modem router, and then connect the other end of phone cable to the wall jack with DSL or cable service. Finally connect the modem router’s LAN port to your computer or laptop with proper IP address, subnet mask and gateway in order to configure it correctly. Advise you to always read the user manual in order to understand more.
