Home Networking

A home network connects two or more computers together with network interface cards and a network line, and enables the computers to have file- and print-sharing capabilities.

If you choose to use a router with your cable modem, please be aware of the following:

  • The cable modem must be plugged into the router's WAN (wide area network) port.
  • The router must be configured to work with a DHCP (dynamic host configuration protocol) network.

Buying Your Own Router

If you choose, you can purchase your own router to use with Spectrum Internet.

  • We recommend the router be a draft 802.11N router with a built-in gigabit switch.
  • Most 802.11GB and some draft 802.11N routers have a built-in full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet switch, which can inhibit the system from achieving appropriate speeds.
  • For heavy internet and multiple wireless device usage (e.g. watching live video on multiple devices), we suggest using a router that provides concurrent dual-band wireless-AC connections.
