Re: [MN] no router or firewall in standard install?

In Iowa its the same practice of just giving out a modem.

While its understandable that people would want more from them, and I am definately NOT a fan of mediacom in any way..... people have to realize that providing any sort of service other than a modem can open mediacom up to lawsuits if any business does get hit.

Also, most of the techs they send out to hook up the modems don't even have a month of computer experience, and hiring more qualified workers would cost them a whole lot more than they are willing to shell out. Trusting these people to protect your network would be a huge folly on their part.
