Re: New Modem model to be released ?

A router is a device that separates two different networks...  Why would you not be allowed to have a router?  Anyone is allowed to have them, they go from extremely cheap and climsy, to very expensive high end ones with a lot of bells and whistles.

It also allows numerous devices to be connected to the same network and ISP modem either by wireless or cable.

A Hughes modem only has a single LAN port so only a single computer can be connected.
a router usually has 4 LAN ports allowing 4 computers to be connected by wire and most routers have a wireless portion that allows devices such as laptops and tablets to connect over a encrypted short range wireless network.

Alana, do you have router police where you live? I guess you might have been joking about not being allowed to have one.
