These days, Internet service provider (ISP) and IT companies, so we can offer the combined company, as a modem and router. The concept seems simple and inexpensive solution for those who have difficulty networks (eg, connection issues lines of equipment), or simply do not want to deal with the headache is all that and start surfing, and plug in something, and as soon as possible . On the other hand, for those who understand how to manage computers and the Internet, the idea of the combined unit, there are problems.
The problems of the modem and router in one device, a lot. In general, these types of devices are built and sold to consumers, "quick fix" they want the lowest price. It can be concluded, and he certainly proved that this is the lowest price is not always the best long-term investment. To get started, if something goes down, it would be difficult to figure out what and where exactly the problem, this country has a router or modem, is to blame? may be technical gurus not really, if not the window, with the exception to find out the story. In this case, it would be better to just buy a new device. When operating the network, you can also reset the device when they are separated and do not leave the system as a whole. Or, in cases when the device decides to go at its own discretion, you can be sure that the other components are not damaged, you keep your connections.
declined updates are part of our overall computer-driven modern world, so we should expect that some parts needed here and there, as their life begins version. It is possible that the routers and Wi-Fi standards, it will function in a single step forward, and the modems could move to move in another direction, or goes on to predict how much anyone. Protection device allows the individual more flexibility in upgrading and meetings on industry standards. You can also a high level of performance, without replacing the loss for the whole.
When it comes to Internet providers or all together say (switches, but not again be very useful for you from DSL to cable) your combined company. If you have a separate modem and router, you can get to more easily communicate with your new provider and was the installation of a new service, always with surprises, the problem is the wind, if the "help-me" of Rep. The company knows exactly where the problem is.
If you're streaming video to work, or you use a car, you will always need to be wary of overheating in the combined unit. Since the field implementation of the much more "work" there is more to go faster when the temperature increases. It may be some cases only a modem with a low volume in a combined unit that caused the problem. If you unplug the router and not only reduce the likelihood of overheating, but you could replace the modem with the best option is easy. And not only that, but "liberation" of power and resources (eg, RAM) in the field, but rather will create expectations of loading pages when you view.
Of course, with a combined device is easier than the illiterate, and, perhaps more than the bundle of wires running neatly through the equipment here and there, but the cost and impact may not be worth it. If you have to pay extra for the network to put someone on your behalf.
