Re: [MN] no router or firewall in standard install?
said by Anonymous:Was that really a reply to me as it indicated? My brother did not go for the wireless router option. I am not sure if you mean that MC would disable the router and wireless functions on their own wireless gateway, had he gone for that option?
Well that wireless gateway will eventually have the 'router' part disabled and it will be turned into a modem with only LAN 1 port working with no wireless and only one IP allowed so in other words expect downtime (and no you will not be warned before it happens)... If you want the wireless gateway fully functional you need to pay $4/mo or so.
If it was a home install, and the tech installed a modem/router combo without the Home Networking Service being purchased, the router functions would eventually be disabled.
You did not mention that this was a business install in your original post. Only that it was for your brother's 'small office'.

it was nice of him to do you a favor however judging by the outrage and people complaining about their internet service interrupted Mediacom is disabling these devices big time. i recommend buying your own modem and/or router.
