Modem/Router combo for cable I recommend: https://amzn.to/3BJfOyG
I'm on my 3rd modem , from Huawei . Each in the last 2 years so far has broken down – all modems , have been faulty – that's tech stuff and me – can't even run a car without it breaking down in or out of warranty , 🤭🤔😵💫
WOW! Made so clear, and diagrams helps magnificently.
I think it confuses people when they get a modem/router from the cable company.
If you like, you can do a DIY router using an old computer/laptop. Routers are often under powered ASECs.
Also, that router with multiple ports is a router with a switch on it. Companies will often have smart switches.
You want a router even if you have just one device…
Thank you. I will use this in my lesson.
Great and clear!!! Thanks a lot
Perfect, that's the word for this video, absolutely perfect!
it blows my mind that people have access to the internet, and still come to youtube for easy gains (too bad they're not really gains) stay stupid friends!
Very beautifully explained. Thank you. I wish university teachers explain any subject like that.
If I have modem that abs built in internet can’t I use a router to extend the wifi?
What if I do all my business on my laptop and not a desktop? Do I still need a modem? Or can I just get a router
So wireless modem would need a router to have a better connection for say, gaming and streaming?
Thanks, well done.
Great video, Thank You

Love, from Australia.
Awesome !! thanks dude.
Who's actually responsible for managing peer connections? The modem or the router (if modem bridged)?
When using a cable modem, isn't another option to use a coaxial cable splitter, and then run multiple coaxial wires to multiple modems which can then connect to multiple computers without using a router?
Great Explanation, audio and Visual
well explained 10/10
dose this works the same way for a library to?
Finally, I understand what modems and routers do! Thank you so much.
Great Presentation. So we can tap directly into the Internet using a modem? What then is the goal/function of an ISP?
Great presentation again.I'm not sure if I misunderstood you, but in another video you seem to have said that routers are used to connect between networks, as they can read IP addresses, while switches connect within networks, as they can /do read MAC addresses, so they relay messages to individual devices.

I'm looking to get a POE security camera and I have internet through Suddenlink no cable. The camera gets its power through an ethernet cable. I would Like to use a separate modem just for the camera can I do this. It's a 4K 8mp camera made by Reolink.

Verry good video, i'd like to know how can i do ths kind of video please? Wich software to use ?

Is semi managable and un managable switch are same
PowerCert videos always makes my networking concept clear.I am very thankfull for that.
Thanks for greeks!!
Thank you that was helpful!🙏
If I were to connect my computer directly to the modem, how would that work? I was taught that in order to access the Internet I HAVE TO have a router.
