  1. Can I use my router without modem?


    As the title, earlier I can use my router without my modem, but now I can't use it anymore.
    When I turn on my router, It said that there is "Unidentified Network"
    Can anybody solve this, or I should use my modem again. Because my router is not connected to internet. I just use it to shares files, printing, etc.


    thanks before...

    :)

    Can I use my phone as an internet router in my home?

    Thank you Prof Julie. I looked up the software and found it should probably address my needs. And it's only $20! I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. You're the best,

    Can I use my router without modem?

    Right, the Router is for an internal Network as you described. There is an Uplink port on Routers to connect to a Modem whether Cable or DSL. In my case I have a small device plugged into my Router that connects to a small dish for Wireless DSL, essentially a 2-way radio. If you want Internet service you need the Modem but for 1 computer could do without the Router. Most Routers are also Wireless where one can use Wireless devices such as Notebooks/Laptops, Smart Phones, Tablets, etc., for Internet access. The Modem is the interface between a computer or Router and the Internet or WAN/Wide Area Network. The internal Network is also known as a LAN/Local Area Network.
