Gold Standard Instructions For Replacing Current Combo Modem/ Router With New NETGEAR - Nighthawk CAX30 AX2700 Wi-Fi 6 Cable Modem Router

I want to make this as painless and foolproof as possible when the time comes. Unit is already Cox approved.

I can go on the Cox website and I found two links. I get the feeling however they may be talking about modems that you get from Cox and this is not the case. I'll be purchasing the Nighthawk.

Are there better DIY instructions on how to pull the plug on my current working modem and plug in the new one via Ethernet to get it working and registered with Cox?

I guess I can always call up support and ask them for help but I wanted to see what you all had to say first. TIA.

  • I'm just babbling here but when I first subscribed to broadband service in the late 90s, an installation CD came with the D1.0 modem.  Ahh...simpler times.

    Nowadays, it's a conundrum if you don't have a cell phone.  "Call us on your telephone to activate your telephone service!"  You'd have to find a payphone to activate.
