    Default Old Age and Moving

    12 Years ago I wired 2 computers, a HP All-IN-One Printer/Fax/etc., Magic Jack. My wife and I are moving to a facility where she will have her HP computer and a TV. In my room I will have my computer. In the living room we will have a TV and the Magic Jack. I looked at the current wiring and wonder what I was drinking. Please help clarify what pieces I will need. This is what I THINK. Where we are going is wired for COX Cable.

    My Room - Cable to Modem and Modem to Computer

    My Wife's Room - Cable split to TV and Modem to Computer

    Living Room - Cable split to TV and Modem to Magic Jack.

    If I don't use the All-In-One then I don't believe I would need the LinkSys Router I have.

    I have a Motorola Modem and believe when I add the Internet on at the new apartment, Cox will give me another modem. That means I
    would buy 1 more.

    How did I do so far???????

    Thanks a lot for all help.

    Chuck,

    Unless I'm mistaken, you WILL need a router and either WiFi or Hard Wired (Category 5) cabling.

    Generally speaking there is only ONE Modem on a Cable connection. That modem provides an ethernet jack or jacks to connect your computers/devices to the Internet.

    So.

    Your computer:
    1. Cable Outlet -> Modem -> LinkSys Router -> Cat5 to your PC
    2. LinkSys Router->Cat5 to your Magic Jack


    Wife's room:
    1. Cable Outlet -> TV
    2. WiFi card in Wife's PC connects to the LinkSys

    Living Room:
    Cable Outlet -> TV

    Honestly, I'd probably put a WiFi card in your PC and put the Modem and the Router in the living room, with the Magic Jack connected to the router. Then I'd grab a dual headed cordless phone setup (make sure it's not a 2.4 GHZ phone) and put the base station in the living room and the handsets wherever convenient.

    I may be misunderstanding your configuration, but this is how I'd expect it to be setup.

    I am unclear as to why Me and my Wife, whose rooms will be on either side of the living room in the
    rental, require a router. I thought a router was only needed if 2 or more Internet devices were connected.
    The only device I planned on in the living room was the phone, which is currently 2.4 ghz with a remote)
    It seems in trying to trace the wires that the All-In-One connects multiple devices, but that will take more
    digging.

    Chuck,

    The Magic Jack, your Mrs. PC and your PC, are all Internet Devices. They all need to connect to the modem to access the Internet (unless I'm misunderstanding your goal). A router (or a switch) is necessary between the Modem and Internet connected devices.

    What you suggested in your first e-mail was that you would have a modem between each of your devices and the cable connection. I don't think this is do-able. As far as I know, you can have only ONE Moca modem (cable modem) on your Cable connection...you can have multiple Cable Boxes (for TV), but only 1 Cable Internet Modem. So each device you want to have connect to the Internet MUST go through a single Modem...this is why you probably had the Linksys connected to your modem.

    Am I misunderstanding what you're trying to do?

    Yes Scott. Both you and GU3 are being very helpful. When the time comes, I hope COX is also.

    More Info. I found that it is the Motorola Modem that has the WiFi. I am using it to connect an Ipad so we can Skype with our granddaughter.
    My wife has an HP S5-1110 Slimline PC. You can see my configuration under my name. I am always uncertain about doing anything with an HP.
    With the Modem having Wi-Fi capability do I still need the router or just 2 Wi-Fi cards? Can the MagicJack connect through the Modem?

    Aha! The missing piece of the puzzle!

    Yup, the two Wi-Fi cards should be sufficient. Honestly, if the PC doesn't have WiFi already, I'd pick up one of these: Tenda W311MA Wireless N150 Mini High Power Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates - Newegg.com (or something similar).

    In this case, the Modem is a Router too, so yes, the Magic Jack should work just fine in one of it's ports. I expect you'll find that the Motorola Modem has several ethernet ports, but I'm not sure. If you can tell me the model, I can look it up and see.

    Yeah, that's a pretty miserly data rate (38Mbps) and it's WiFi is a bit dated too (G). I'd see what Cox can offer you as a Modem/Router/Gateway, and work from that. You want a DOCSIS 3.0 compliant modem (for the fastest speeds), and something similar to what you have with at least 1 Ethernet jack (for the Magic Jack) although more would be better and a Wireless Access Point (Preferably AC, but N is good too) would be perfect.

    Yup, the two Wi-Fi cards should be sufficient. Honestly, if the PC doesn't have WiFi already, I'd pick up one of these: Tenda W311MA Wireless N150 Mini High Power Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates - Newegg.com (or something similar).

    In this case, the Modem is a Router too, so yes, the Magic Jack should work just fine in one of it's ports. I expect you'll find that the Motorola Modem has several ethernet ports, but I'm not sure. If you can tell me the model, I can look it up and see.

    I looked up the Tenda. As usual a little confused from the picture.
    Does this plug into a USB 2.0 PORT on each computer?
    What would connect to the Cable in the Living room that the MagicJack would connect to?
    Thinking, danger ahead, the Tenda software would pick up connection information from the
    router in the Living Room??????

    Exactly!

    The Magic Jack would plug into the Cox Modem/Gateway wherever you put it, and then you'd plug the base station of your cordless phone into the Magic Jack.

    So, if you want the Base Station in the Living Room, I'd put the Cox Modem/Gateway there.

    Yes, you're exactly right, the Tenda Wireless adapters would talk to the Cox Modem/Gateway directly. If either of your PC's already has wireless, they won't need the Tenda Adapter, however wireless N & AC are both dramatically faster than the wireless offered by your existing Cox device, so it's entirely likely that even if your PC's currently have WiFi, the Tenda's will be much faster.

    I would add a spliter to the Cable in the Living room. One cable for the Modem/Gateway and one for the TV in the living room.
    Also, the Tenda we are using as an example uses DOCSIS 2.0. Would it be more advantageous to get a USB 2.0, I don't have USB 3.0, that supports DOCSIS 3.0?
    Thanks again.

    Certainly, get a USB 2.0 one, that's fine. You don't need to go all out on an adapter, a solid N wifi adapter will probably be sufficient and relatively inexpensive.

    http://www.amazon.com/Asus-Wireless-...2%3A1248879011

    Looks like a good option. Dual Band N, and up to 300 Mbps.

    DOCSIS is for the Cable Modem only, it's a standard that covers how Internet traffic is sent over TV Cable. It doesn't apply to your WiFi adapters. The Tenda was just an example I pulled off the Newegg page (as I recall), so don't feel limited to that one!

    Do the WiFi adapters have their own software, or would Windows add new drivers?

    You're throwing me a curve ball here Chuck!

    Generally speaking the answers are:

    Yes, and Yes.

    In my experience the best way to deal with WiFi adapters like these is to plug them in and see what happens. In the best situation, Windows detects the adapter, uses a generic WiFi adapter driver, and you're off to the races. Otherwise, you can use the disk that comes with the WiFi adapter, and install the drivers provided. It's kind of a crap shoot, and has a lot to do with the chip in the WiFi adapter, and how new it is. When you first connect the WiFi adapter to your PC, it might be worth having it connected right to the Cox ethernet port, just in case Windows wants to download newer drivers from Microsoft, once you get the WiFi adapter up and running, you can move the PC to where it needs to go, connect to the wireless network and you should be good to go.
