said by jeneral:This is the Wireless modem I bought from Rogers. I'm hoping when I make the switch over to Distributel from Rogers, I can still use the same wireless modem without having to purchase new equipment. My contract expires in July with Rogers for the Internet. For now, I'm looking for an alternative. said by PRIUS:
Moving forward, I would like to know if the RCA Thomson DCM475 modem that Distributel sells for $99.95 is wireless (modem with router all in one), such as the purchased SMC G gateway wireless home networking Modem I bought from Rogers?
*Does Distributel sell cable wireless modems?
*Will the SMC G gateway wireless modem I bought from Rogers work on Distributel's system?
Sorry to read about your difficulties with the CSR.
Re: your modem questions.
The DCM475 is just a modem. It does not have a built-in router.
If you own your current router and it is currently operating on Rogers, you should be able to use it with Distributel. I brought my Motorola SB5100 modem over when I switched.
One word of warning, don't schedule the changeover for a weekend. Mine was scheduled for a Saturday. On Saturday morning my Rogers service stops working and despite many calls to their tech support, they couldn't do anything for me until Monday. If I were you, I would schedule the switch for a Monday or Tuesday. Problems are resolved much quicker during regular business hours.
