Orbi WITHOUT modem

Hello! How can I install Orby Wifi System without modem? I only have ethernet cable that connects to the router. I haven't got modem.

Re: Orbi WITHOUT modem

As long as you have network/internet connectivity via that ethernet, you're fine.  Modem is just a method to do so.

Re: Orbi WITHOUT modem

My ethernet has login and password(from provider)

It won't be a problem?

Orbi supports Internet connections that require login and password.

 

Orbi is not a modem.  If your Internet connection requires a modem (such as cable or DSL) then Orbi will not work without a separate modem.

 

Why do you think you might need a modem?

Page 24 of the manual describes this:

If your ISP requires a login/password, you select the encapsulation method - PPPoE, PPTP, or L2TP.  Does your ISP use one of these?   Can customers of your ISP use other consumer routers?  If so, thats a good indication Orbi will work.
