I want to set up a different modem? I can seem to get Wi5 in my basement so I thought I should try to set up a better(modem).
There are only two modems from Shaw with WiFi, you could try a better wireless router (which you can buy now at almost any store), have your Shaw modem bridged and use it
Where is your modem in your home? If you have a 3 level home, try moving your modem to the main floor to be closer to the basement?
its a bungalow. but the one room that can get it is the farthest away from it now. my son is in the room and he cant get his wii to work or his wifi on his phone, and his phone is going over on data so I need to fix this problem. I have a d-link modem wireless router, I'm wondering if that will work better then the one that they gave us.
Try it, even if you just plug it in, you can see/check the wireless signal in the rooms, seeing how strong the signal is, if it is good or better than what you have now, contact Shaw, and have your modem bridged, then you can hook up this D-Link
