Would a 2007 MBP A1226 be compatible with a 2017 Motorola MG7315 Wi-Fi modem?
I don't foresee any issues since both devices support the same wi-fi protocols and specs.
Thank you for your reply Audit13.
After visiting the local BestBuy electronics store, they're telling my to forgo the N450 broadcast signal and go with a router that has AC1200 or above. They say the AC signal is faster than the N300,N450,N600 signal. They also told me some other things like it's better to go with a separate modem and router instead of an integral modem+WiFi router combination and it's better to have a router with external antennas. Your thoughts?
Yes, getting an AC router is forward thinking but you need devices capable of supporting the necessary high speed protocols which means you would need a USB wireless adapter for the 2007 Macbook.
A separate router and modem is a good idea but many internet providers, at least in Canada, provide combination units that work quite well. If the wireless performance of the combination unit is not good, a router can always be added to improve wireless performance.
I use a $19.99 Belkin router with my cable modem and I can do 60mbs with my MacBook
Which Macbook dud you use to get 60 mb speed?
A USB adapter would probably be needed for a 2007 Macbook to achieve high throughput with 150 Mbps service.
