With a wired connection, you need an ethernet cord to connect your device directly to the internet. With a wireless connection (Wi-Fi), you can connect to the internet without cables.
A wireless router is a device that allows your wireless-capable devices to connect to the internet. With a traditional router, your devices must rely on a single point of access (the router). With a mesh network, you get multiple points of access (depending on your home size) to ensure full coverage of your home. With a wireless router, you don’t have to worry about the size of the antennas or walls blocking the signal.
An extender extends your Wi-Fi signal range. Basically, it repeats the Wi-Fi signal of your wireless router to cover more area in your home.
With Lumos you get a mesh network which means there will be multiple access points that communicate with each other all over your home to give you seamless Wi-Fi coverage no matter where you are in your house. You get a further reach with a mesh network than with a single router. During installation, the technician will customize a solution for your home and recommend additional access points if needed to get whole home coverage.
While wired internet is generally faster, it’s not always possible or practical to plug in many devices (think of how many cables you would need). Besides, even if you could plug them in, some devices simply can’t go as fast as your internet can go.
