One Device instead of two ( Modem/+ Wireless Router)

Hello Bart,

This is xxxx, After receiving your Tech support request I returned your call and left a voice message on your answering machine. This is a follow up email to recommend you to either buy or rent only one device that function as Modem/Wireless Router not two separate devices. I said only one device instead of two separate ones ( a modem + wireless router) because the output is much faster.
Second I would like to let you know that I will be more than happy to evaluate with you your network situation and provide you the best solution that fit your needs.

I am always available even during weekends if scheduled ahead.

Thank you,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This message is a follow-up email to recommend that you either buy or rent only one device that functions as Modem/Wireless Router, rather than two separate devices. The reason is that the output would be much faster using only one device.

In addition, I would be more than happy to evaluate your network situation with you, and provide the best solution that fits your needs.

It is not always true that one device is better than two. I use a Cisco RV325 for my home VPN router hooked up to my cable mode. The Cisco RV325 has 900 Mbits/sec of internal throughput. I have a Cisco RV220W lashed to the RV325 and get N wireless speeds with it. If I hook up my laptop via Ethernet, I get full 900 Mbits/second throughput on big (50 GB) file copies.

So be aware of that as you make your recommendation.

John, I knew we could count on you to think out-of-the-box and go beyond the nuts and bolts of proofreading...:)

ummm..I always read that two box in the majority or the time are faster because two devices means one extra hop. also , when I do a speed test plugging the pc directly in to the router rather than in the wireless device it is always much faster....

Thank you both of you. Thank you John to go beyond the proofreading...

What you read about consumer gear is often true. Good commercial gear is often better. I was just giving you a complete picture.   Thanks for the update and I was happy to help.
