Frequently Asked Questions for Modem Router Combos
A Modem Router combo is a device combining the functionalities of routers and modems. Using a single device instead of two separate devices offers a cost-effective, convenient solution for your home or office. One device is easier to set up and takes up less space on your shelf. For both the best WiFi and the fastest multi-gigabit internet throughout your home, explore NETGEARs modem and router combo solutions, such as the NETGEAR Nighthawk CAX80 Modem Router or the Orbi Tri-Band WiFi 6 Mesh Modem Router.
You will need a modem router if you wish to use a single device to connect to your Internet service provider (ISP) whilst simultaneously allowing multiple devices to share that Internet connection. Alternatively, you can have a modem plus a router or WiFi Mesh System as two separate physical devices connected via cables. NETGEAR's range of Modem Router combos provide all the necessary functionalities in one device.
There are several types of modem routers that NETGEAR provides. Some of the key differences between the products include the wifi technology, range, speed, and modem technology. For example, one key aspect that differs between the NETGEAR Nighthawk C7000 Modem Router and the NETGEAR Nighthawk CAX30S Modem Router is that the former includes WiFi 5 technology, whilst the latter offers WiFi 6.
