Most basic home networks consist of a modem to connect to your ISP of choice along with an integrated 10/100/1000 Base-T connectors attached to a router. Commonly refered to as Ethernet and as your local network. Optionally you may also have a WiFi router supplied by your ISP, usually as an additional charge.
We do not recommend customers purchase and use their own modems as this act frees your ISP from any liability, read free service, in case there are one or more problems with your connection. Renting a modem from your ISP guarantees you can open up a trouble ticket with your ISP. On the other hand, we do recommend that you purchase your own WiFi router if needed, as this option will allow your greater freedom and control over your network including the possibility of running SSL DNS services, cutting your ISP out of the loop for marketing your Internet activities.
Allow you to share your Internet connection to your ISP with more than one device which are collectively referred to as your local net. Commonally your devices are connected together via a "cable" and WiFi (radeo waves). Your router generally supplies a local application you can access with a web browser so you can config the router and all it's many options.
