The Cisco DPQ3212 has a connection for coax cable and also what looks to be standard phone line. The phone line on my modem runs to an outlet market "MTA".
What is the purpose of the phone line connection? In previous installations where I've had cable internet service, the modem did not have the second (phone line) connection. Is it needed for internet connectivity and functionality?
Wanting to move everything to another room that has a coax cable jack, but no "MTA" outlet.
Thank you Lisa. So it sounds like I would need to leave the current modem installed in this room to maintain the land-line phone system, and also continue to feed the router.
Then, add a second modem in the other room for direct internet connectivity? For security and connectivity reasons, I prefer that the new connection also be direct wired, and not rely on a wireless connection.
Would it be best to obtain that additional modem from Cox, and would there be any complications with two modems connected in the same house?
Two modems in one house is fine, as long as only one is provisioned for data. The DPQ3212 would stay provisioned for phone only. As for where you buy the data modem, that is up to you. Here is a list of compatible modems. What internet plan/tier do you pay for?
