RCN - How to reset router?


A router is a network device that you and your family use to be able to share your RCN internet connection wirelessly or through cable networks. All your devices could be used simultaneously. It is connected directly to your RCN modem and then to each computer, laptop, and mobile phone on your home network.

What is the maximum number of Wireless Users I should have on my Router?

This would differ for every WiFi router brand. Although fast and stable internet is possible to be shared by multiple gadgets with a single router only.

There is a tendency that the more devices and gadgets you connect to your router the slower the wireless speed would be because it would be divided among all of them. Just turn off the internet connection of gadgets not in use.

If you have your own router, just check the user guide that came with your router for maximum users.

The general rule is that you should not place your router next to things like your microwave ovens, baby monitors, cordless phones, phones, Bluetooth devices and other appliances that would cause the slowing down of you’re the speed of your wireless connectivity.

Is it important where my Wi-Fi modem or Router is located?

Yes, It’s important. The farther your router is from your devices the more it could affect the speed and signal of your connection.
