F Secure Sense in set-up with modem and wifi router
Hi everyone, after a long wait I have now finally received my F Secure Sense ... but after unboxing I noticed that obviously back then when I ordered the device I had misunderstood one point: I was not aware that the F Secure Sense also serves as a secure WiFi router. So my original assumption around the set-up seems to not be accurate. I was expecting to build this set-up:
Modem (via my ISP) -> cable connection to F Secure Sense -> cable connection to WiFi router
All devices in household connect - as before to WiFi of my WiFi router, but are now protected by the F Secure Sense Firewall
However knowing now that the F Secure Sense is intended to be used as a WiFi router itself (and from the description only protects devices that are directly connected to its own WiFi) I am wondering:
- Does having the F Secure Sense render my existing WiFi router useless?
- If no - what would a sensible set-up look like? Would e.g. my "original" idea of modem - sense - wifi router still work?
- If yes - what would happen if I went for a set-up of modem - sense and using the Sense's WiFi, but install my former WiFi router at some other place of my home as a repeater - would in that case the full protection still be guaranteed? (my assumption is yes it would, but prefer to doublecheck)
Your help and thoughts are very much appreciated. I have tried F Secure Phone Support already twice, but they couldn't help...
Thanks in advance.
