New to netgear

Im planning to get a netgear and have a couple questions. Does Netgear need a modem to work or does it work as soon you connect the coax cable from the wall to the netgear will it work? Do you have to pay monthly like Xfinity for example? Im new to this and hopefully find an answer to this

A Netgear what?

 

What is the "coax cable from the wall"? It may or may not need a  modem, depending on what sort of Internet you get.

 

Ask your ##Internet service provider what equipment you need. It may offer to rent of sell you something. But most will let you use your own equipment

 

Xfinity is an ISP. All ISPs that I know of charge for access.

Yes, it needs a modem.

You'll have to sign up with someone to get onto the Internet. I'd wait until I chose that before deciding what equipment to buy.

That's not a Netgear model number. AC1900 is not a unique Netgear model number. Some devices come with the AC tag, but it is essentially a label that Netgear, and others, attach to hardware to describe wifi speeds.

 

AC1900 is also a somewhat ancient wifi technology from about five years ago. Does Netgear still sell that stuff?

Re: New to netgear

I would check out something RAX or maybe a MK MESH system. R series routers aren't being made anymore and will eventually be EoL.

I would never recommend anything without knowing what you need. We don't all live at the bleeding edge

 

Go for the cheapest that fills the bill and meets your budget.

 

Try plugging your needs into the filters on the product pages:

 

Wireless Routers for Home | NETGEAR

 

and

 

Orbi: Whole Home WiFi System for Better WiFi Everywhere | NETGEAR

 

Then check back here for reports on the things you are considering, but remember that people turn up in this community with problems, not compliments. So look at reviews on Amazon, for example.
