I'm considering getting High Speed Internet (Cox) service. Cox offers a self-install kit. Reading what is contained in the kit, I can't find anything I need in there. It contains cables and a splitter, but I have that. There is a vague reference to some software contained therein, but I cannot determine what it is. I have a browser (IE) and e-mail client (Outlook [not Outlook Express]). When I activate and they give me an account & password, I configure my browser and mail software (and install a cable modem) and I'm good to go, right? Or can any of you tell me what software is in that kit that I need? Thanks in advance... DrMark

You need a modem, cat 5 to go to computer, acess to free cable line. Call their support and have them set you up

Ask if it's a USB cable modem (compatible with Windows OS) or if you will need to open the case and install a network card inside your PC.

I have the Cox HS Modem setup. Works great. Don't screw with it. Call them and let them do it...that way if it fails, they fix it...free. You muck about with it and it don't work...YOU pay to fix it. JMHO.

I [b]wish[/b] RoadRunner had a self-install when I got my cable modem. The zit-faced "technician" screwed my computer up pretty badly and never did get my modem working. He managed to corrupt my network configuration so badly that I gave up and reformatted. (I do this a couple times a year just for the heck of it, anyway. [;)])

I let Cox do mine mid 2002...It's working great now (once Cox got rid of RoadRunner). I have 4 machines on my lan 2 of which are wireless. It's very cool.
