Ok, you guys might be able to help me out.
I am going to buy a new router to make my internet better as we have to many connections for the supplied modem/router.
Can I run the new router off the modem/router with the modem turned off.
And if so, how?
Thanks in advance

I did this and it work but the internet became very unstable and it even affected the whole internet access too. I keep loosing internet every hour or so

z1522 says:

Everyone says to change the name so both units share the same ID and password, i.e. so as to appear as one when connecting; my reason for a second router is to upgrade to 802.11ac/5GHz. It may be that the signal strength when closer to the old incoming modem-router unit looks ‘stronger,’ but my concern is the wireless speed. Can I just give the faster unit a different name, so I can just make sure to connect thru it always and ignore the other unit?

Rommel Angeles says:

Is it legal?? and is it available any country.?? and does all kinds of modem works to this??

zach carl says:
