First, you’ll need to have a functioning internet connection provided by your Internet Service Provider such as AT&T, Spectrum or Verizon. You should already have a modem which provides internet access by connecting devices directly to your modem with ethernet cables.

If yours does not, you’ll need a router that is capable of providing a reliable WiFi signal throughout your home.
