Wifi booster

If I plug my verizon wireless router into my gen 5 modem will the wifi run faster

I don't think the router influences the broadband speed.

If your devices are experiencing slower speeds when connected via WiFi vs being connected via LAN cable it might, but if this is the case there may also be a settings adjustment in the HT2000W that might bring your WiFi speed up.  


Is this what you're experiencing, and if so, are you connected via the 2.4Ghz band or the 5Ghz band?  If you don't know, when looking at your WiFi connection in your device the connection should start with either hug2 or hug5.
