Network connection doubts please help

Well, you want a good standalone router, the Ubiquiti USG or Ubiquiti Edgerouter Lite works. You can pair it with a ubiquiti access point (Like the AC-Lite or AC-Pro) and limit the bandwidth to the wireless that way.

 

Have fun with upgrading the network though. I just finished upgrading my own (Ran CAT6 wires) and changed from the Verizon router to a Ubiquiti USG Pro-4.

Hey everyone.

I have a serious doubt.

I recently renovated my house and so also wanted to redo my home's networking connections. Earlier it was a pretty basic one and I used a DLink Wireless router to do everything.

Now my needs have grown,

I connected the line to my modem and from modem the connections usually go to a router and then to a switch. BUT the problem is I am unable to find a standalone router with gigabit speed. Then I saw the Ghetto Networking wall video at LTT YT. In the video Luke has connected modem to a wireless router and then to switch. I am a wired guy and basically I want all my devices to work off ethernet for faster speed and I would like to use WIFI only for 1 cellphone (others have 4G). 

My doubt here was will connecting modem to a wireless router and the connecting it to switch will give more bandwidth to WIFI? because WIFI is basically useless for me I DON'T need wifi but I need good ethernet speeds.

 

 

P.S.-- sorry for my bad English

We switched to a Ubiquity Networks EdgeRouterX and then configured the wireless router as an access-point. It works out really great so far, never had to restart any network device, yet (in the old configuration I had to restart the wireless router every week bc it couldn't keep up).

Thanks man, help much appreciated.
