Personal router with fiber Gigablast?

We're currently using a Cox-provided Technicolor CGM4140COM. It performs well enough, but we'd like to have finer control over our network and I have a Netgear router that I can configure for the job.

We've got a plain RJ45 link to the ONT, and near as I can tell the provided gateway isn't doing any special dance to connect, just DHCP. Is this as simple as removing the Panoramic from the equation and plugging in the Netgear?

    you could try that or also try running rj-45 from pano to your router & see what you get.

    i do the same with a 2nd router because 2 older laptops won't connect to pano wi-fi.
