Wireless router with build in modem???? (confused)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So im moving to college and we just got internet for where I am staying at. It is 15 or 20Mbps (cant remember) for 35$ a month. They said that they would include a modem for an extra $4 a month. My parents said no and that we would just get our own. So ive been shopping online for a modem and i found a netgear DM111P witch is good but then i would need to get a wireless router for WiFi. But then I came across the Netgear DGND3300 witch is a wireless router and has a build in DSL modem. Does that mean if i buy the Netgear DGND3300 I dont have to buy the netgear dm11p?

Also If the Netgear DGND3300 is a TRUE modem and wireless router, how does it perform. Will i get better performance running a separate modem and a separate wireless router? Or will the Netgear DGND3300 perform just as good or even better. And in case if your wondering what will be connected to it here is a list down below (btw my brother is also moving in with me for college as well)

This is what we will have connected to it
2 gaming computers via wifi
2 gaming laptops via wifi
nexus 7
ipad
2 iphone's
PS3 ( from time to time via wifi)

And as of right now that is pretty much it.

First of all, nice Avatar. biggrin.gif

I don't understand how they install a line without a modem since installing a connection would actually require a modem. Maybe they meant they'd throw in a modem WITH a WiFi capability for the additional 4$/month? Anyway, if this is the case, then you would just need a wifi capable router and you'd be good to go. Just plug in the cable from the modem to your wifi capable router and your done.

I think your a little confused. Here how it went down

They came and did idk what and said that they can throw in a modem for an extra $4 a month
We said no and that we would just buy our own
They said okay just that when you get it, connect it to the proper cables.
Also I want to have wifi for where I am staying at

Now at my house that I am in right now we have a modem and a wireless router

And since I have to find a modem for the new place ima be that I would have to get a modem for the Internet and a wireless router for my wifi
I came across a netgear that has both a modem and router built into one. And I was wondering if it was any good
