Question for Tech People (Internet Connection Two Storey House)
Last edited 19/10/2019 - 11:30 by 1 other user
I have just got iinet cable internet (lucky to be in a located that it is offered). The modem that I received does not cover my whole house. I have multiple internet connections in my house and someone on gumtree is trying to sell a new iinet modem that I got when I signed up. I was wondering if I bought this modem would I be able to run and log into either modem at once? Would that impact my internet speed? Would it be better to purchase a router that repeats the signal to cover all my house instead of two modems? The modem is not very expensive so would be cheaper than buying a router, just unsure if would work. Grateful for any advice.
I am using 5G signal on my cable internet.
To explain myself clearer this is some more detailed info:
My house is double story (for half the house at the rear and is single for the front of the house). The distance from front to back is 30m and the house is 6 metres wide. The modem range covers 15 metres (halfway), so I need something which sends the wifi signal the extra 15 metres to to the front of the house.
What I mean by multiple connections is with cable wifi it is connected using a special plug rather than using a phone line plug for nbn/adsl. I have 3 plug connections in my house where I can plug in the modem. Currently I am using the rear connection, as using the rear of the house more than the front.
It appears Tenda mesh systems seem to be recommended from responses. Would I be able to get away with a Tenda MW3 mesh system (which is cheaper) or would I need Tenda MW6 mesh system due to extended range and how many units would I need in pack?
