Hi there! :)


I really hope someone will be able to help me with this as I don't know much about setting up internet stuff.. I called my provider today who informed me our line is good, there should be no trouble..


The current set up is a router (NETGEAR DGND300V2)

Which goes into my dads computer and into the phoneline. Is this modem out of date, I read somewhere that having an old modem can cause problems. Should we replace it? The service provider guy didn't seem to know much about why both the wifi lights were orange (2.4 ghz) and the 5.ghz was blue. Everything else is a healthy green/yellow light.


I then have my PC the other side of the house which currently is trying to operate on a Netis model no. WF2123 - my pc keeps dropping internet and struggling to have internet of any usable speed.


My question is.. would our internet (especially mine as its not really existent) benefit from a new modem and home plugs? Or would getting a new modem improve the use of the little netis wifi usb stick I'm using?


Thank you so much in advance.
