Help when modem and Wifi router are separate


I have the panoramic wifi router, but thinking of going for only modem and getting my own Wifi Router. But need to know if I can use the Wifi Router in a separate room from the modem without any ethernet cables?

Thanks a lot

    No.  A modem does not have a wireless medium.  A modem must connect to a separate router via Ethernet cable (1 Gbps, GigE, GE, etc).

    i hope this doesn't persuade you from purchasing your own router.  Do it!
