- Hi all. I'm a brand new cox subscriber and have purchased the gigabit connection using the COX Panoramic modem/router (Technicolor CGM 4141). Which i believe is compatible with MoCA. The cable connection comes straight into the front room of the house directly into the modem/router. the cable is not split and distributed to any other rooms currently. I'd like to deliver a connection to two other rooms using existing cable and MoCA. So here is my current plan. Please let me know if I have this right. Step 1. Using a standards compliant splitter, connect the service feed prior to the modem connection and distribute it to the two other rooms. Step 2. Using Moca 2.0 adapters, connect the RG6 cable to covert into a standard ethernet signal. Step 3. Connect my PC to the Moca Adapter using RJ45 cat5 cable. Would appreciate any insights or recommendations. Thanks!Solved
Why did the technician tack the coaxial cord on the exterior of my brand new construction home instead of running it through the house or burying the cord?The technician put a box at the exterior of my home and then ran the coaxial cord down the side of my house. He tacked the cord to the brick. Nobody else in my neighborhood has this and my home is the newest in the neighborhood. Why does cox not try to conceal the cord?
- Hi all, I am a new customer as of just a moment ago and when ordering new internet service there was no self-install option like when I had Spectrum at previous house. Is there no option or did I miss something? I also have my own DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, so I really don't need someone to do anything that I can't do myself. Please advise, and thank you ahead of time.
- Hi, I'm a current and long time Cox customer. We just bought 10 acres and plan to build in about 2 years. I'm doing my research now so that I know what to plan for down the road. Cox has customers along the road already so thats not an issue. We plan to build about 500 feet off the road and do not want anything aerial. So my questions are: - how far will Cox burycable for free? - if they won't go the entire distance, how much do they charge per foot beyond that? - could i bury the cable myself since i'm already going to run the water line myself? If so, would RG-6 direct bury cable be the right choice? Thanks Tommy
- (for context: neighborhood is the Cactus Rd & Tatum Blvd area, by PV Mall) Been waiting for Gigablast for the last 2 years (although Cox has done an awesome job updating Ultimate all the way to 300mbps). Was just messing around on the website and noticed it was available as an upgrade option suddenly... nice! Selected it, chose "I have modem" (ordered a SB8200 from Amazon) and then was given a choice for: 1. Professional Install 2. Self install I chose Self Install because I'm comfortable with this stuff... but I was under the impression there needed to be a Fiber line install for Gigablast to work. I was told by a Cox tech last year (that was working in the neighborhood) that we wouldn't have Gigablast until all the standoffs in the neighborhood had been replaced and had fiber run to them. None of that has happened, all the stands in the yards are still the old ones, so I'm wondering if this is too good to be true? I don't mind having the pro install done if it's necessary, just want to understand what will happen here before I get too excited :) Thanks!Solved
