Wi-fi router for Time Warner Cable

Q: Wi-fi router for Time Warner Cable

I need the best and most compatible router for TWC?
I need the router to reach a very good distance (between 3 houses really close to each other). Or would it be better to get a booster?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

To share from house-to-house, you need a strong RF signal so look for MIMO Class routers with multiple antennas, three if you can find one. If the lot layout is like a triangle between the houses, one good router should work, otherwise when lined-up like a fence, you will need a repeater.

My friend has cable through Time Warner and they gave him a DVR so that he'd be able to record. For the last 8 months he's had customer service there about 15 times. The picture freezes and the audio doesn't match and all sorts of different malfunctions. They keep replacing the unit but they never fix it. The DVR they provided is an Explorer 8000. He asked if he'd be allowed to buy his own unit but they said no.
Television is really important to him so we were wondering if anyone has any ideas for him.
Oh - and he's limited to Time Warner because of his neighborhood.
Thanks!

Over the weekend, I switched to Time Warner Cable from my old company.
It Worked all weekend long, and for all this morning (at least up until I left)
I get home this afternoon and it's not working. (got home at ~3:00 ET)
It's not my router or my computer, but I'm not familiar enough with this modem to troubleshoot it
Have tried restarting it.
It's a Motorola SB5101 SURFboard (r) Cable Modem
Only the power light is constantly lit.
The "Receive" and "PC \ Activity" lights are blinking.
The "PC \ Activity" light goes off if I unplug the Ethernet cable going to the router, though.

No complicated software or games are other apps will be used. I need some help in setting up their Chromebook to access the Internet.

I am unable to connect to the Internet through my service provider Time Warner Cable as of last week. I have had them for almost 3 years and all of the sudden I can't get the internet to work on my laptop. I can take my laptop to other locations and connect to the Internet via cable (ethernet) and via wireless. Also, other computers can connect to TWC at my house via ethernet cable. Therefore, it is a problem with something on my laptop not working with TWC connection at home. Any ideas on software issues or settings on my laptop that might cause this problem? I have called TWC 3 times, they even sent a tech out who could not fix the problem.

Thanks!

A:[SOLVED] Vista Laptop connection problem with Time Warner Cable

Boot into SAFEMODE w/ Networking and try TWC internet connection there.

Since your system worked w/ TWC 1 week ago, perform a system restore using a restore point prior to the period when internet ceased -

One of my computers locked up with a message beeping and flashing at me.
 
The back ground was Norton Security.  The front popup window said something like:
 
"Time warner Cable blocked my internet connection.  They received a report of unwanted Internet activity being transmitted from a machine connected to my cable modem ...... blah, blah
Immediately call .... some 800 number."
 
This sounds a lot like the "Hello this is Microsoft support calling to help you" type of phone call scam.
 
Currently, I am using my Windows 7 computer, connected to the same router and internet connection as the problem machine.  It seems to be fine.  Of course, the problem computer seems okay also.
 
Has anyone seen this?
Is it real?
So what do I do now?
 
Thanks for your help!

Getting really frustrated with Time Warner...

I ordered my own modem/router gateway to ditch the rental fee with Time Warner. Hooked it up, got it activated, we were getting the same speeds on wireless when I did the speed test as we were before we switched the router (it was actually a tiny bit faster).

BUT... videos aren't loading, and we can't load more than 1 tab open at one time... we had no issues with that before. Time Warner has no solution, of course.

The modem we were renting was a NetGear CGD24G (never had issues with it except for the occasional reset) and what we have now is a NetGear CG3000D

Anyone have any advice or solutions...?

I currently have a generic wireless router provided to me by Time Warner for use with their cable internet. I would like to boost my signal by connecting it to a wireless N router (as suggested to me by a TW employee).

Is this even possible and if so, what are the steps?
 

A:Need to boost Time Warner Router signal

What's the exact make/model of the router you have?
Here's one way to use the secondary router and eliminate it's NAT layer.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

I need to buy both because I'm only getting 20 Mbps.
It seems like I should not install both new components, but start with the cable modem.

Or am I being too conservative and should go with both being 802.11ac components instead of 802.11n?

For the cable modem, I am considering ARRIS/Motorola SB6141 which Time Warner approves of for 50 Mbps. I think/hope it will talk to my old router - a Linksys WRT54G.

For the router - ASUS RTN66U.

All advice appreciated,

A:Router and Cable Modem - Install both at the Same Time?

Both your existing router and modem are rated for at least 50Mbps so I would check with Time Warner first to make sure you are supposed to be getting faster service. I'm on Cox and they have three tiers rated at various speeds. Tier 1 is 20Mbps, Tier 2 is 50Mbps, and Tier 3 is 150Mbps; I have Tier 2. I recently replaced both my modem and my router because they were over seven years old and the router was dying. However, I had to do some tweaking with the piddle poor cabling job Cox's contract installers did to get the full speed I was supposed to get (the biggest improvement came from putting a terminating cap on the unused leg of the data tap). Also, you most likely share the same cable connection with several of your neighbors and that can slow down the speeds you can get. During high volume traffic times, my speeds can drop to as low as 30 Mbps. What position you are on the line can also affect the maximum speed you can get; the farther away you are from your ISP's hub, the less speed you will get.

If you do decide to replace both, I would get and install the modem first, then, if necessary get and install the router.

Hi Everyone,

Today we moved from one house to another .. I know I'm TIRED. BUT, I have just signed up with Time Warner Roadrunner and I can't for the life of me, figure out how to sign up for their email. I figured out that I had to download Netscape first to get their included security, but now to get started with that they insist that I have a Roadrunner email, but I can't find out how to do that!!! Grrrr. I hate this computer being so vulnerable. Does anyone have Roadrunner who can tell me where to start to get my email going??

A:Time Warner Roadrunner

You do not need netscape to use RR email. When you signed up they should have given you a username and password. Then you can go to http://help.rr.com and log into their account management where you can set up your emails.

A:time warner taking over the navigation bar

It could be as simple as changing your DNS settings. Luna is based on Ubuntu so here are the instructions
for changing your DNS settings to use OpenDNS. I've used for years in Ubuntu. If that doesn't resolve the problem then
post back with a list of Add-Ons/ extensions in Firefox.
Right-click on ‘Network Icon’ (located at top-right panel by default) and click on ‘Edit Connections’ to open Network Connections Manager
Choose the type of connection you have. As I connect via WiFi my screenshots refer to show ‘Wireless’ however the dialogue for ‘Wired’ connections have the same options needed for this in the same places.
Under ‘Wireless’ or ‘Wired’ highlight the connection you use (normally prepended with ‘Auto’) and click on ‘Edit’.

Inside the editing window that opens click on the ‘IPv4 Settings’ tab
Under ‘IPv4 Settings’, change the ‘Method’ to ‘Automatic (DHCP) addresses only’

Put these name server addresses as your ‘DNS Servers’:
208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220

Click ‘OK’ and reboot.
Now visit the link below to to confirm you are using OpenDNS

Just got a quote from Time Warner to install cable at my house for $15k (actually $30k but they're covering half). The house is 2500' from the nearest pole. Obviously I can't do it. I have Wildblue, the highest speed and download capacity, but with three of us working from home it's getting very difficult to stay below the limits (and the Business solutions are too expensive and not much better). No cel signals, either (we're up in the woods). I thought about putting a shed at the bottom of my road, putting electric service in and having Time Warner install service there (for $29.95). My question is, can i boost the signal (only interested in internet) 2500'? If so, what size cable would I need? I'm not opposed to spending $1k-$2k to get this done. Any other suggestions. THANKS!

I'm trying to help a family member access their Time Warner webmail account remotely.  Accessing their webmail from the PC they normally use as well as from mine works (these 2 PCs are in different physical locations with different ISPs).  At the 3rd physical location from a 3rd different PC, with a different ISP than the one used in the other 2 locations, we can click on the link for Webmail from Time Warner's website but it doesn't display the page to put your username and password in.  We've been working with adjusting settings within Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 on the problem PC to no avail.  We've even disabled it completely and it doesn't work.  The problem PC is running Windows 8.  Access to all other websites works except for access to Time Warner webmail.  I would be open to any suggestions for resolving this problem.

As horrible as Time Warner Cable is, I'm not surprised about how slow my internet is. I see people on here with much much faster connections than me, I wonder how do you get those fast connections? My internet is 2-10 Download and .1-.5 upload. Is this normal? Does anyone know if upgrading to turbo (or the highest internet service from TWC) actually do anything?

Edit: Even on a wired connection my internet is deathly slow.

A:Time Warner, Slow Internet (Not Surprised)

I have TWC with turbo and it is pretty good. The speeds are about as advertised, taking into account the normal system overhead hit. I don't know that it would be worth paying for turbo if you usually used a wireless connection, though.

If you ever do go with turbo, make sure they give you the right cable modem to support it.

Also: For a wireless connection there are a lot of factors involved which are out of TW's control. If you get (close to) the speed they advertise while you're in wired mode, fine. If not, I would squawk about it.

I need my wireless router several more feet away than one cable will allow. One computer plugs in, and one is wireless; so that means I would need 2 or 3 ethernet cables plugged into the router. I have one very long cable so I was thinking I could run it to the wireless router where I need it, and have the non-wireless router by the computer that needs to be plugged in and run a cable from that to the computer as well as have the long cable plugged in and run that to the wireless router. Make sense? Would that work?

I have a 2wire DSL/router that emits a terrible wifi signal. I have a Linksys WR110 that I want to use as my primary wifi on my home network. Problem is I can't figure it out how to make it work. Is it possible to run a cable wifi router off a dsl/router to use as an access point? or a stand alone WiFi point and just have the DSL/Router using the Lan ports only?
 

A:1 DSL modem/router and 1 cable router

If it was me, I'd do the following:

1. Turn off the wireless in the DSL router.
2. Turn off the DHCP server on the Linksys router.
3. Setup the wireless of the Linksys
4. Assign a static IP address to the linksys router in the range of the firs router. e.g. If your current IP for logging into the first router is 192.168.1.1 then change the Linksys to 192.168.1.105 or something.
5. Connect the DSL router from Port 1 to the Linksys router Port 1.

In effect, you use the DSL router to assign IP addresses on the network, and use the Linksys mearly as a wireless access point.

Hey guys, this is my first time building a case from scratch, and I was wondering how my cables looked.
Good, bad? Did I do anything stupid?

Also, my 8-pin EATX, cable was a bit short, so it's in there really tight. Is this going to become a problem?

Thanks.



 

A:Cable management for the first time!

Cables look fine, and as long as cable isn't so tight that it's bending the plug and that it's locked in place then it should be fine. Depending if the window on the side of the case you may want move or hide the cables that are on top of the top drive.

One recommendation that I would make for future builds is that you install the CPU and heatsink before you mount the motherboard in the case; it makes it much easier especially locking the heatsink down. Installing the RAM is easier as well with it out of the case.

Another thing I'd recommend is that you space out the hard drives so they are not stacked on top of each other; that will help with heat and may help them last longer.

Hi, just a question. I apologize if this is not the right forum.

Does a DSL/Cable Router provide protection equivalent to a Firewall? Does it offer any protection? I have heard many things and I just would like to know. And could someone tell me the particulars of how a Router works and what protection it can provide, and "how" it provides that protection?
 

A:DSL/Cable Router?

The short answer is that most routers do in fact have a firewall in them for incoming packets only . You would be prudent to still have a firewall program in your machine to protect you onout-going packets, like those that viruses, trojans, and spyware send.

Also, a firewall in your machine often has a mail scan function further guarding agains malicious e-mails.

My NetGear router has an excellant firwall, but I still rely on ZoneAlarm Pro and Norton antivirus.

Hope this helps.

At the moment my router is in one room and my computer is in another room about 30 feet away so in an attempt to improve signal reception I am considering running a cable from Virgins inlet box up through the attic and then down into the room where the computer is and install the router alongside the computer.My question is what signal loss would result from adding about 50/60 feet of cable from Virgins inlet box to my router and is it a special type of cable or is it just uhf as for television signals.Would also need two of the screwed end connecters and could I obtain them at any electronics store?.

A:Router cable

This is just a guess on my part because I'm not familiar with how routers are cabled in the UK and more specifically, with Virgin's equipment. But if it's anything like here in the Colonies, if your ethernet is a 10/100/1000 Mbps connection you should have a theoretical max cable length of 100 meters (about 328 feet.)

ethernet maximum cable length explained at HomeNetHelp.com

This also seems to be confirmed on a BT forum thread by Nige32.

You could use up to 100 meters off a CAT5e cable before you run into performance issues. (I would get a professional to wire the connectors for me though)

Cables can pick up electrical noise on long runs. Some cables are poorly made. The longer the cable, the more important it is for the cable to be properly shielded, and to be a good quality cable. You may want to check with your provider just to make sure the above info applies to Virgin.

Hi, thanks for viewing my thread. I just switched from DSL to Cable. I ran 4 computers through my Netgear FS605 router when on the DSL. Now on Cable the router will only run 1 computer at a time. Checked with Comcast, things are fine through the modem. All the router port lights for the PC's blink in unison. Are there DSL only and Cable only routers? I see DSL/Cable routers advertised making me think if there are "combo" routers maybe there are singular routers? Need help please as "who's turn on the computer" is wearing thin.

I run a cable from a router for around 100m outside to a caravan.

It has been in place for a couple years no problem.

Half of it is between telegraph poles and the other half is overground in a plastic water pipe.

Suddenly stopped receiving signal from the router, so we changed the 2 plugs on the end - no difference.

Then made up a connector which joins wires 1+2, 3+4, 5+6 and 7 +8 and plugged it into one end of the wire.

Came back to the other end and ran an ohms meter between 1+2 etc and got an average reading of 84ohms

Tried the same measurement on a 100m of new cable and got a reading of 17ohms.

What does this mean ?

I had a similar problem with another cable to the caravan over 2 years ago which had been in place for 2 or 3 years ????

A:using air card and cable internet at same time

You can have and use multiple connections. The catch is that Windows will choose one of the Default Gateways and use that as THE DEFAULT Gateway; hence your internet access will be through whichever Windows chooses. It will choose the wired connection (in every instance that I've seen so far).

So using the two you've mentioned should mean that your internet tests will be with the cable, and you will need to disable that connection to test the Air Card. Keep a Network Connections window open and the toggling shouldn't be too much effort.

I used it for backups for a while so really didnt notice, but now im putting everything that i download on it so i can save my internal drive space. This is when i really noticed that i seems to take awhile to xfer files to or to remove files and i was wondering if i might get faster response time with a better usb cable. It has both 3.0 and 2.0 but it seems to cable is rather thin compared to for example my usb headphone cable.

I have never shopped for a better cable, just figured they were all the same but now im finding out they are not.

1. Can i get better speed with a better cable?
2. Any suggestions of what type of cable i should be shopping for and where, maybe newegg?

A:Can i get faster response time with a better usb cable

If it supports USB 3.0, are you connecting it to a USB 3.0 port (blue one). That will make a difference, a new cable is unlikely to have a measurable impact.

Your router is an ADSL modem and not a broadband router.

You have Broadband... not ADSL, you need to buy a broadband router....

You then take the ethernet lead that goes from the modem to your PC and plug that into the socket on the broadband router.

It sounds to me like you should consider getting in someone who knows the difference between the 2 types of routers and can set it up for you.

Or else your going to be there all day just figuring out which wire goes where.

We got our Netgear wireless router set-up with our wireless antennae-on-the-roof company so that it works when either my computer or my husband's computer is connected to it with an ethernet cable. My husband's will also connect to the router using wireless.

So the problem is that there is something (broadcast enabled?) that is preventing my computer from doing the final step of connecting to the router by wireless rather than ethernet cable.

Both of our machines are Dell Windows XP with internal wireless cards. Mine is a Dell XPS. Previously my machine connected wirelessly with a previous router that my son took, so I know it is capable of doing so. Something just got turned off in trying to get things going with the new Netgear router. I imagine it is something simple, but can't figure it out. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi all,

Just set up the lynksys/dsl router (WIRED), nected to the router I have an XP machine and a 98se machine. The XP machine works great super fast internet speeds, the 98 machine loads web pages very very slow. Without the router, the 98 machine runs superfast.
I believe the cause of the latency has something to do with the router, I have all proxy settings off on my 98 machine. Any other ideas as to what the cause of the slow bandwidth may be?

BTW, I have Cable internet access.
 

A:Lynksys cable/dsl router help

This is my standard answer to most networking problems, check that your PCs are setup correspondingly. It is generally faster to use fixed IPs rather than DHCP handing them out. That might be the cause of your delay.
Make sure ICS is not switched on on that W98 PC.

A few basic setups when networking:

Router-setup WAN:
Protocol: Fixed IP
IP-address, Subnetmask and default Gateway: as per ISP-information
DNS-servers: as per ISP-information
Enable NAT

Router-setup LAN:
IP-address: set to e.g. 192.168.1.254 (or use default)
Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
DHCP-server: disable

Router: Some System-settings (depending on your router)
Optional SNTP (time): e.g. 194.35.252.7 for UK/Ireland (GMT)
uPnP: disable
Dynamic routing: disable
Remote config: disable
Dynamic DNS: disable
Firewall: Block hacker attack: enable
Firewall: Block WAN request: enable
VPN: disable all settings unless you need it

PC-Settings
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Use the following IP address: 192.168.1.101 (102, 103 etc.)
Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.254 (IP-address from your Router)
Use DNS Server address: 192.168.1.254 (IP-address from your Router)
Second DNS: leave blank or put in first DNS-server from WAN-part in Router

Enable File/Printer sharing if you wish (works only within local network)
Check individual printer(s) that they are shared as well (in printer-settings)

And make sure all your PCs are in the same WORKGROUP.

If software firewall installed, enable the other PCs IP-address(es)

It has worked in the past, but there was a huge power outage which reset the router.

The values may all be assigned to you automatically when the router makes the connection. And depending on the intelligence of the router you may not need to know any or some of these.

The necessity of knowing those items depends on the technical details of your internet connection and how dumb your router is. Unless your ISP has a policy against connection sharing they will happily give you all this info and assistance.

Generally,the cabling is.
Cable connection to modem
ethernet connection from modem to router's wan/internet(could be called either)
If you want a wired connection,then from the router's lan port,ethernet connection to your pc's lan/ethernet port.

Before doing anything,power off both devices.
When completed with cabling,power on modem first,wait for it to settle(proper lights on)
Then power on the router and as above,wait for it to settle(generally,power light,wan light,internet light and ethernet port light if you have a hard wired connection.)

Then,log onto your router's admin page and set up your wireless network(security encryption,wireless mode,name,channel,etc.Hopefully you have a user's guide for your router)
Hope this helps a bit

A:Solved: ICS with 2Wire Router and Cable.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

However they sent over a router which wouldn't be up to the job of online gaming for both a pc and an xbox 360. So we tried to use the old belkin n1 router, but we had no success. We have rung up belkin and they told us to ring sky. sky told us that only their router is supposed to work with their broadband, and gave us no help. One thing to note is that sky is not on the selection of ISP's during the router setup. we used the " Your ISP not there?" and entered correct details on the next steps but it wouldn't connect to the internet.

Any Ideas?

I have an Greyfox/ON-Q distribution panel that was installed during construction of my house. At the moment, I have both a desktop style cable modem and a wired/wireless broadband router crammed inside the panel. I went to the ON-Q website and only found a wired router, but no modem. I need something that will mount inside the panel box.

Also, how can I use wireless router inside the panel and still have adequate range? It seems that wireless wouldn't work inside a metal box. Are there remote mounting antennas that handle this issue?

Thanks!

Hi Guys,

I used verizon wireless broadband service for an year . Now I?m switched to roadrunner. The problem is cable modem is not wireless so I feel uncomfortable with the wires and all.
I still have DSL broadband router that Verizon provided (Westell Versalink 327w). This has DSL connector for in and regular 4 Ethernet connector.
Is it possible to connect this router to cable modem and use it as normal router? If possible is it very difficult to seup?
My cabel modem is RCA DCM425 (http://support.cox.com/sdccommon/asp...86f1#back_view)

Thanks a lot
Girish
 

A:Can I connect Cable modem to DSL router?

no. DSL and cable internet are two very different technologies. You'll need a standard router that you can use with any type of ISP. Then all you need is a cable modem or a DSL modem depending upon the type of service you have.

Hey guys this and Modem Wireless Cable Router is my first post here Hello to all I m using a cable internet service which requires me to login every time using their login page which opens in a browser when i try to access a website This has to be done everytime the modem restarts which is frequent due to frequent power outages in my country I have to use a wireless router since my primary machine is a laptop and I can t sit at one place with the ethernet cable connected to the modem all the time With the wireless router the system is unreliable Sometimes it will open the login page sometimes it wont Sometimes it will open webpages sometimes it Cable Modem and Wireless Router wont and sometimes it will only open select pages I was wondering if i can use some setting on the router to save my username and password for the cable internet service that would automatically log it in so i don t have to do that manually every time It could be done with DSL using the PPPOE setting doesn t that work with cable internet I m using the Linksys WRT G nbsp

A:Cable Modem and Wireless Router

You didn't mention which country, but I will make some assumptions.

No, PPPoE doesn't work on cable modems, so you can't use that. On most routers/cable modems, the web page thing is an configurable option on the router. You need to turn it off. Contact your ISP about turning it off.

In the U.S. cable service does not require a log in (by the user) The cable modem does this automatically before the modem even comes up. It is invisible to the user. ADSL always requires a login. This is where the PPPoE auto login comes in.

A:Cable Modem Gateway + Router

One of the problems you have is that router will severely limit your internet speed. I had one with the comcast connection and it dropped me from 21MBs to 6 MBs. Once I trashed that and went with comcast's modem I was back up to full speed. Seeing how you pay roadrunner, I had them when I was in TX., I would call them and tell them that you want to switch to AT&T. Not that you really are intending to but let them know this. Then tell them the problems you are having and that is the only reason you are thinking of canceling with them and switching to AT&T. Watch how fast they quickly offer to resolve your problem by sending a Tech out for free and fixing the problem for you. They key word here is you have to tell them that you are thinking of canceling with them and switching to AT&T. That should fix your problem with no headaches on your part! Post back to what they reply with you.

Here's the situation, I just upgraded from DSL to cable due to the fact that my cable company was supplying a package which consisted of: Broadband, Telephone, and of course cable. What I would like to do is purchase a wireless router in order to provided access to one other computer and my Xbox 360 (Connected via: Wireless Gaming Adapter), but I'm unsure how to go about doing this. Here's the information I recieve when using IPCONFIG
IP Address:74.140.157.56
Subnet Mask:255.255.224.0
Default Gateway:74.140.128.1
DHCP Server:74.128.9.4
DNS Servers:74.131.0.20
74.131.0.21

I guess my real question would be, if I bought a router could I implement NAT in order to connect multiple computers to the internet, is a router compatible with this modem?
<b>(Cable Modem=RCA DCM 425)</b>

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike
