I have Vodafone Broadband (Fibre). I have the Vodafone issued router in the garage, had it 4 years.
The internet on it has been crap for ages, When I connect via my cellphone, wife's cellphone, iPad I frequently get no internet access when WIFI is connected (PC has no problem). So I used a very old router as a wifi access point. Plugged that in at the lounge Ethernet port. That's worked for about 6 months but is slowly becoming a pain also, same issue. Turn it off and on and away we go again.
I want to solve this now, the internet I believe is fine, it the age and crap quality of the 'free' routers supplied when you sign up I think.
Ultimately my question is.
I've gone onto PB's website I get 'modem' and 'routers' as two separate category options - what's the difference? - what do I need to replace what I have in the garage?
Do I need to do anything so connect it to the internet once purchased it will it detect the internet somehow?
(I'm no geek like I said)
