I've purchased a Netgear CM1000 that I'd like to use as the modem for my internet service. I also have a Cox phone; what do I need to do to keep my phone service and use the CM1000 for a cable modem?
Thanks -- Peter
You can plug the new modem up to any active cable line in the home to receive service. You will also need to register the modem when you first plug it up. You will be directed to our self activation page when you first try to access the internet so that you can register the modem.

Sorry, I guess I was unclear. The CM1000 does not have a telephone port on it to connect my phone to. If I plug the new modem into my cable line, what do I need to have to connect my phone to?
