Will swapping my router or modem give me more configuration settings on my home network?

These newer Spectrum modems that require you to configure it all through the app are a bit too limited for me. Would I have to buy a different modem or router to gain more control through the default gateway? I would assume the modem, but at the same time the few settings I have are configured through the router section of the MySpectrum app.

    Hello @DianeBishop


    Welcome to our community! It would be the router settings that you are configuring through the My Spectrum app as we do not allow for the modem settings to be changed. If you do need more options than our routers would allow, you are free to purchase and use your own router, which would give you full control over the settings. I would recommend calling in to 855-707-7328 if you do purchase your own router, so that the account can be updated and the $5 monthly Wi-Fi charge can be removed.
