You cannot, you can buy a router and connect to the modem

Some router have a better wifi range, a friend of mine bought an ASUS and he doubled the wifi range.

Here how to connect the router to the Fizz's modem

No you cant

Hi Gregory

It depends what you are trying to fix. If it's a matter of extending the signal range, you could use a WIFI signal extender which may be less expensive than a router.

If you need a wired connection in your room, then that's another thing.

Gregory,
No, but you can use your own router in your room and connect it with a RJ-45 câble to the Fizz modem (on bridge mode).

Like Mike and others mentioned, connect your Fizz Modem to a good router, i use ASUS AC router i find it reliable, the newer ones have very good WIFI range and speed, it tends to be on the expensive side compared to other brands!
Don't forget to update the software when you get one.
I personally don't find WIFI signal extenders as reliable as a good router they tend to drop the signal, again it's a personal choice.
