Re: Required to register new modem?
You can't just buy a modem and plug it into your coax connection and expect it to work.
You have to call WOW up for it to receive and send data. They will need the MAC address.
They will also send the .bin file down to it if it's on their supported list. If it's not on their supported list then you're on your own. If that's the case, most likely you will be running in docsis 1 mode which means it's fine during offpeak hours... but during heavy neighborhood usage, your modem will suffer greatly.
