    I just received an updated modem from my cable company and it contains built in wireless. Is there really any need to continue using my AirPort Extreme if I don't really use any of the other functionality, other than having had used it for the wireless functionality?

    Should I simply retire my router now that I have one built in?

    Any thoughts are appreciated!

    Unless your Airport extreme is pretty old, chances are, it's better than the wireless that's built into the modem.

    U should get your own modem so you don't have to lease it.
