Good day all ... I have cable internet service through my ISP. They provided me with a Motorola modem which is attached to the coax cable feed. I want to provide internet service to my children's computers, but becasue they are two floors up, the signal is usually poor. While perusing e-bay and other sites, I've notices that there are a lot of modems like the one provided by my ISP for sale. If I get one and hook it up to the cable line in one of my children's room, would that provide internet access?
Thanks!!

Re: internet access via second modem?

Nope. You'd need another ISP account with another ISP bill to use a second modem. A broadband router with wired or wireless connections is what's required.

Re: internet access via second modem?

Thanks ... I think that's pretty clear!:sigh:

I guess another route to go would be to set up a connection with a Powerline Network Ethernet Adapter. I will also have to look at where I set up my wireless router. It's an older house with lots of metal, and I've never been able to get a good signal.

I'll mark this thread as being resolved.

Thanks again!:wave:

I would NOT recommend the powerline network adapters, my experience with them has been abysmal! :4-thatsba
