Does Alien require a WiFi 6 router?


  • I have Verizon Fios, 1GB coming into my home. If you are not aware, it is a fiber-optic network. It has no modem. I have raw ethernet coming in from the outside box which plugs into their router which is current (older) WiFi technology.

    Does the Alien router need an initial connection from my router or can I use the raw ethernet?

    If it does require a router, is it okay that the router is only WiFi 5 capable? I would think not as I am only using that router to feed the raw signal. However, I want to be sure about that.

    Also, if have to use the Verizon router first, is that signal filtered and/or compromised in any way?

    Thanks in advance
