I'm not a tech guy, and I thought buying this would extend my wi-fi router signal. But instead it seems to have created it's own network separate from my modem and it needs to be hardwired to my modem (with a short cable). So to achieve the full property coverage i wanted, i guess i would need to by more than one so they work together. fortunately i was able to run my own longer spare internet cable through my basement and wired this router in a location that gives me coverage at the front of the house. but now my phone needs to switch between networks depending on if i'm in my back yard or front driveway. Also, not sure if there is a 5G option, but if there is it didn't jump out at me.
