    Hello Angel,

    Try to reset all of the devices including the laptop at the same time. Can you see the Wifi network names on the laptop list of available networks? If not, please reach us on Twitter at @CoxHelp, visit us on Facebook, or email us at Provide us the name on the account with the complete service address with a link to this thread so we can get started.

    Netgear has pulled a fast one on their customers. The CM1100 "shakes hands" with the faster Docsis 3.1 protocol. But the hardware in the cable modem is obviously Docsis 3.0. It cannot handle faster speeds.
