Milo is designed to work in conjunction with your router. Your Milo maximizes the wifi your router provides but does not replace it; rather, the router works with the Milo to further extend your coverage. For the best performance, we recommend downloading the Milo mobile app and setting up your base someone near your router, where you'd like to get more coverage. Then, you'll connect your Milo to your existing router network, and set up the points in other locations spread throughout your house.
You can also choose to wire your base directly to your router using the Ethernet cable. This will create two separate wifi networks: your router's network, and an additional Milo network.
If you do want to get rid of your router, Milo also works when it's connected to just a modem. We encourage you to use Milo in conjunction with your router though, if it's an option, because your wifi coverage will be just that much more enhanced.
