Re: [TWC] Raleigh, NC TWC - which modem is best to purchase?
said by Jeanette :Yes, it goes with the cable modem where the rest of your wiring terminates. Make sure it gets enough ventilation... some builders run all of the cabling into a cabinet with little to no ventilation, and this can cause problems. If this is the case in your situation, consider leaving the cabinet open, or find a way to install it just outside the box.
Thanks for the quick replies! The breakeven point on purchase vs lease seems to around 2 years. Since I hate the idea of giving TWC a penny of my money, I'm inclined to buy the thing. (I'd switch to another provider in a second if I could get reliable internet somewhere else.)
F/U question: I assume the router would then go in the wall box with the modem, yes? Will the modem I have be sufficient (assuming the TWC can get the Smart TV to connect to the internet through it. I can't.)
Your router should be OK as long as the signal reaches everywhere in your home, and the modems that we have suggested in this forum will also be OK.
