    In the Twin Cities with Comcast, I used my own Motorola modem for awhile. I went looking for a modem that works with Bresnan/Optimum, which now belongs to Charter, but was having problem finding something. Looking now, I see Amazon and eBay show the same model as mine for a good price and naturally it's on the Charter approved list. Would save$6.99\month.

    I do use a landline and keep a TracFone for travelling and special needs. Networking is not something I know much about, but I assume the Engenius replaces the ethernet run from router to computer. Would that maintain the kinds of speeds I'm getting out of the wired connection? I also run an ethernet cable from router to my dac (UPnP). Would it have any effect on that?

    Here's a screenshot of the router's setup screen. Since the IP address shows as, what adjustments are needed to get to a screen that shows the Gateway system stats, including power levels?
