Buying a modem for internet connectivity.

What is a modem?

A modem is the device that allows you to access the internet and cable service in your home. A modem uses the cable wires installed by your internet service provider (ISP) to connect your computers, TVs and other devices to the internet, while a wireless modem provides access without the physical wires. Regardless of how many devices are using the internet in your home, you should only need one Wi-Fi modem. Once the initial connection to the internet is established, a router enables Wi-Fi access within your home. Because floor plans and building materials vary between houses, sometimes extra help is needed to ensure reliable Wi-Fi reception in each room. For this purpose, a powerline adapter quickly converts electrical outlets into separate internet connection points. 

Benefits of owning a modem. 

Most cable companies rent devices for a fee, which can add up over time. By having your own cable modem, you save money that you can use to spend on streaming media players or other fun things. Another plus of choosing your own modem, as opposed to whatever one is chosen for you, is that you get to decide the quality and type of wireless modem you’re going to use. When updates in software happen, an upgraded modem is responsive to any changes or improvements to your service, ensuring that you always have the fastest connection speed possible. If you decide to switch service providers, you still get to keep your modem with all the features that led to your purchase. If you’re worried about having enough space, a modem router combo takes two devices and combines them into one which also saves you setup time and money. Modem combos boost wireless connectivity with long-range wireless signals, but you can add a Wi-Fi extender if you’re concerned that the connection won’t reach every corner in your home or office.

Choosing the best modem for your needs.

While shopping for your modem, keep in mind that not all models are created equal. First consider what device you are using most to access the internet and then determine what the best modem is for that purpose. For instance, if you are an avid gamer, then you’ll want to go with the best modem for gaming. Since multiplayer online games are fast moving, you’ll want a gaming modem that can keep up with the action on the screen. Modern modems typically have ports for Ethernet cables and USB cables to give you even faster wired connections for your game console and secure network access for your desktop PC. If you primarily use your smartphone for making calls or you don’t have landline telephone service at all, a cable modem might be the best option for you. Just remember to confirm that your modem is compatible with your cable company. No matter what type of modem you choose, Best Buy’s Geek Squad® can help with your home Wi-Fi setup to ensure that your device is installed correctly.
