I was looking at my modem setting and saw a option saying (modem only - modem + router) I was wondering what option is better and wanted to see if there any benefits to an option? Another question I had is if I should have the lights on my modem blinking or have them still?
My modem is a netgear D7000
Sounds like you’ve got a modem/router. They’re different components, though most modern modems have a router in them. If you’re not using it to route you could theoretically turn it off. Whether it will help anything or not is another question. That’s mostly for “i want to use a different router with more ports”
