Modems and Routers are important staples when it comes to accessing the internet. Gone are the days when consumers had to put themselves through the hassle of using standalone modems and routers to meet their everyday internet needs, because now, you can use a combo of cable modem and wireless router, a 2-in-1, and enjoy the best of both worlds.
In case you’re new here, Mediacom offers its customers the option to choose a conventional setup that includes a standalone Mediacom-approved modem and router, as well as a combo device. You can pick any of the two options with Mediacom’s high-speed internet service.
What’s special about current Mediacom cable modem routers is they use DHCP. This means the connection is always on and any device connected to the modem-router is automatically configured. DHCP assigns an internal IP address to every connected device, therefore a manual set up is not required. You can connect a Mediacom modem-router directly to your PC or laptop using an Ethernet cable, and if you have a Wi-Fi set up, you do not need any extra bits and pieces.
However, if you’re one who likes to keep things conventional and typically straightforward with regards to your equipment, you can use a Mediacom modem and router as separate devices. But, how do you get started?
Well, worry no further about that, because if you continue to read you will find out how you can set up your Mediacom modem and router, free of hassle.
Note: Skip steps 2,3, & 4 if you have a second wall outlet for the coaxial cable connection from Mediacom or if you are not using TV service.
Why Do it yourself?
Mediacom modems and routers function via DHCP so that users can easily create and share a network space. Installing and setting up Mediacom modems and routers is uncomplicated. Anyone who can simply read the instructions manual and comprehend it adequately can fire it up. However, the important thing is to follow each step carefully, because it’s in the hand of this process to render the product you have chosen to use, function effortlessly.
