I want to upgrade my home network hardware to a newer, cleaner personal system. Do I require the Telus Modem and , or Router? I have 2 wireless Optik boxes that have terrible connection issues due to the location of the router and the build of the house with it's central heating ducting. So was thinking of both replacing the Telus router and relocating it along with the home entry point of the Fibre optic connection. the 2 Optik boxes would still remain wireless due again to the build of the house.
Will my new access point be able to manage the Optik TV, as I was told it HAD TO BE the Telus Router/AP
You will need to keep your Telus router to have Optik work properly, as most other routers do not offer the multicast technology needed for the TV signal. Moving equipment, or adding ethernet cables to other locations in your house is the better choice.
