Are there commercial routers with phone jacks compatible with cox voice service. I have the cox rental I would like to replace with one I purchase.
If you want landline, Internet and WiFi; you'll need 3 devices:
- Internet Modem (DOCSIS) - Telephone Modem (eMTA) - WiFi Router
Cox will freely loan you the eMTA. If Cox issues you a standalone eMTA, you'll need to purchase a DOCSIS. Make sure your choice is on the list of Cox Certified Cable Modems.
If the Solution Store doesn't have a standalone eMTA available, they'll freely loan you a combo device (DOCSIS & eMTA).
A router is your personal network and you can buy whatever you want: wireless, non-wireless, 802.11a, MU-MIMO, 60 GHz, etc. However, Cox would gladly rent you a PoS all-in-one device (DOCSIS, eMTA & WiFi).
Most would recommend purchasing your own router. You only need to determine your needs: your data plan, number of networked devices, ideal location, etc.
UPDATE: Oops...I didn't notice this post is a month old.
you can use the emta for internet, so only emta and router needed
That may be true nowadays; however, that's why I qualified a standalone eMTA.
When Cox started pushing their new telephony technology in 2016 (VoIP, Cox Voice, packet switching) I specifically asked the Solution Store for a standalone eMTA because I was happy with my Internet modem. That's what they issued; that's what I connected.
Nowadays, those standalones may be long gone. I don't know.
you asked for a separate modem but they always had that option to use the emta as your internet modem also
