FAQ – What is the difference between a Modem and a Router?

Modem

A modem is the Melita device (which you get on installation) that gives access to wired as well as wireless internet depending on the type of modem.

Cable modems have a coaxial (or “coax”) connection which is connected directly with our system outside your home.

A router is a device connected to our modem via an Ethernet cable through the internet (WAN) port, that allows multiple devices to join the sameĀ network either wired or wirelessly.
