You may have noticed that the word “wireless” is on a number of routers in the NFC, which means you’re likely to have a modem in your pocket, bag or purse.
But what about routers with the name “wire” or “wirefree” on them?
We found out by taking a look at a few routers and finding out which routers have the word wired in the FCC’s trademarks, along with a link to a searchable database of routers that have been listed with a wireless router combination in the U.S. The following is a list of all the wireless routers that we found to have the name wired on them, and a list that has links to a map that will take you to the manufacturer’s website that lists the exact router you will need to buy if you need a router with this combination.
If you don’t know how to find wireless routers, this list should help you get started.
To begin, you will have to be in a WiFi-only area, so you’ll want to get the FCC registration number, as well as your wireless network’s EIGRP address.
Once you have the FCC number and EIGRPs, we’ll go over the router types and the router functions you can use to get a good idea of what’s going on.
If you want to dig deeper into the details, there are plenty of articles on the FCC and FCC-certified manufacturers that you can read.
If the FCC is listing a router for the first time in the list below, it means that the FCC has issued a notice to all carriers that the router has been approved for use in the country.
Once this notice has been received by the FCC, it is then reviewed by the company that issued the notice, so it may take up to 24 months before the manufacturer can receive a license to sell the router.
If the manufacturer does not have a license within the 24-month time frame, the company will need one from the FCC to market it.
