It is little bit different to set up a 3rd party wireless router for Time Warner Cable.
And nowadays, it is very difficult to get these internet cable companies to do customer support when you setting up your own wireless router FOR FREE. AT&T charges, Time Warner refused to give any piece of advice on 3rd party wireless router back in two years ago… That make sense, because they have no obligation to provide support for the product they didn’t sell.
Most of the Wireless Routers are very easy to setup with. Just choose DHCP mode for the connection type. But in Time Warner cable, you will have to change MAC address settings. What is MAC? That is not an Apple computer, but Media Access Control address. You don’t have to know what that is.
In default, Wireless Routers will be using default MAC address. But Time Warner Cable internet wants routers to use computer’s MAC address. So what you need to do is to find out where this setting related to MAC Address is, and change it into “Use Computer’ MAC address” or “Clone MAC address” or similar values. In my case, NETGEAR WNR2000 – 100NAR router, the setting was hidden under “Basic settings” section. Just select the second option, and in the most of cases, you are good to go!
