Is there a Wi-Fi router with a Roku-like function built into it?

Episode 990 (2:17:09)

Michael from Valley Village, CA

Michael is going with DSL Extreme and he needs a WiFi router for it. Could his old AT&T Wi-Fi modem work instead? Leo says it could act as a router, but it has to have Ethernet into it. He should make sure that he's enabled it for bridge mode. It'll either work or it won't, but Leo says that Michael should just get a wifi router instead. Leo recommends Dlink.

Michael also wants to know if there's a router that works as a Roku as well. Leo says they really do two different things. The chatroom says that NetGear makes a media server/WiFi router. It costs twice as much as a Roku, and the reviews say it's expensive and noisy.

Leo recommends getting a good Wi-Fi router and a good media streaming device like the Roku as separate devices instead.
