Pesky LAN wires that limit your mobility more than anything else are fast falling out of fashion. Most of us have opted to install in-home Wi-Fi so we can continue browsing our favorite apps and sites no matter where we are in the house. You want to know what can make your experience even better. Well, subscribing to Spectrum in-home WiFi!

The high-quality router ensures you get a reliable internet connection with high speeds no matter where you are in your home.

Spectrum WiFi Cost

When bundled with Spectrum Internet, Spectrum WiFi costs only $5 a month.

  • You will also need to pay a small one-time activation fee of $24.99 
  • If you opt for standard installation, you will also incur an additional charge of $59.99—you can easily skip this charge by choosing the self-installation option.

Do I Need A Modem & Router for Spectrum WiFi

Spectrum Internet packages come with FREE modem that essentially connects your home to the grid or the local cable system if you will. You can then connect your computers and laptops with it to use the internet. However, if you want Spectrum wireless internet, you will need a router as well.

A router is connected to the modem and then transmits Wi-Fi signals in your home. Getting the right router separately and setting it up is a lot of hassle which is why Spectrum Home Wi-Fi sounds like a sweet deal—especially at a low fee of $5 a month. When you subscribe to Spectrum in-home WiFi, you get the Charter Spectrum Advanced Wi-Fi router free and it is what sets apart the service—making it truly worth it.

  • The pre-configured router comes equipped with cutting-edge security features and takes care of all your needs, so your internet experience is smooth, fast, and secure.
  • Built on WiFi 6 technology, Spectrum Advanced WiFi router uses high-powered radios to give you a better range
  • It also features dual-band concurrent operation that allows you to benefit from the 5.0GHz frequency band more fully.
  • At the same time, it operates on the 2.4GHz, which ensures your older devices get a good internet connection as well and are not deprived of signals.

Given that Charter is the only one offering dual-band concurrent routers to its users, you can rest assured that you are getting the best of all that is out there. Spectrum’s routers ensure you get high-speed internet even when you are far away from the device. You can judge the quality by the fact that you can still get 30Mbps at 120 feet from the router. The best part about it though is that Spectrum makes sure that it never gets outdated.

Can I Use My Own Equipment with Spectrum?

In case you are not in the mood to spend $5 every month by renting out a Spectrum router, the provider allows you to skip that additional fee by getting your own Spectrum-compatible router. The only downside is that your equipment won't be eligible for Spectrum technical support.

WiFi Spectrum Installation

As for installation, you can choose from self-installation and standard installation.

  • Self-installation of Spectrum Advanced WiFi is very easy. All you need is a self-install kit that comes at no extra charge with everything else you need, like HDMI cable, coax cable, etc.
  • But if you’re not even a little tech-skilled, it’s better to opt for standard installation, which costs a one-time fee of $59.99.

How to Self-install Spectrum WiFi

Connect the Modem

  • Connect one end of the coax cable to a cable outlet and join the other end to the modem.
  • Next, grab the power cable and connect it to the modem and then plug it into a secure electrical outlet.
  • Once you’re done, wait for two to five minutes for the modem to connect to the network.

Connect the Modem to the Spectrum Wi-Fi Router

  • Grab the Ethernet Cable and join its one end to the modem.
  • Then, connect its other end to the internet port that’s present at the back of your Spectrum Wi-Fi router.

Spectrum Wireless Internet or Wired Connection?

The decision totally depends on what you want out of your internet connection. When it comes to browsing the internet on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, no Wi-Fi means no internet—in which case you must get Spectrum Home Wi-Fi.

On the other hand, if you are a gamer, and you primarily use your internet connection for that, then a wired connection is all you need. Gaming consoles, smart TVs, and PCs take up a lot of bandwidth and require uninterrupted connectivity, and WiFi cannot help you with that.

Then again, given how most households have multiple devices and use the internet for multiple reasons, you might as well add Spectrum WiFi to your services.
