Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I have 2WIRE 2701HG-B router which i bought from AT&T. Now i disconnected my AT&T connection and have COX internet connection. I have received modem from COX. Now my question is, can i use AT&T router for my connection to COX internet connection?
No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.
The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.
If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.
