Which are DSL, Cable Modem and FIOS. Each one is different and to find a replacement I think you need to do the math.
Here my cable modem is a 3 dollar month charge. So a replacement is 99 bucks so I don't pay off the replacement for years. Also, if the ISP's modem fries, they replace it. If my modem fries I get to deal with it.
Let's hear more. And refurbs here have been fine.
I'm not savvy when it comes to technology so bear with me. I have had the same ISP for years, but about a month ago my modem died and they came out to replace it. Now I'm suddenly being charged a monthly rental fee for the equipment. I was told that I could buy a modem from somewhere else and use it instead. I found a refurbished modem that is the exact model as the one I'm currently using so might buy it. My questions are, is a refurbished modem ok to use? Also...as importantly...what network name and password do I use with the refurb? Would it be the same as the ISP's modem that is set up now? And will this all be easy enough for me to do on my own??
