the modem is plugged in. If you have cable internet you need the cable modem. The router plugs into the modem.
I received a belkin wireless router from a family member. Runs setup fine, but never connects to the internet (last step). Internet will not work while this device is plugged in. Unplug wireless router, internet on pc is back up. I noticed Charter's wireless routers have the coaxial connection, is that my problem?
I browsed their webssite,not sure about monthly rental fees, and a "team" will come for the setup. I am trying to avoid monthly fees, paying for install, and just the regular hassle in dealing with Charter.
I need a router that works with Charters internet (coaxial input), and provides wireless access for my laptop. I can get wireless access in two spots in my house via my laptop, from a neighbor, but need more powerfull, and reliable connections.
Can anyone help??????
