Ditch your ISP's modem and change your Internet experience forever

Eric Geier | Oct. 22, 2013
If your ISP allows it, buying and installing your own modem can net you some sweet performance improvements and a cheaper monthly bill

Once you've done that, you may have to call your ISP and provide the modem's MAC address to activate your Internet connection. You can usually find your modem's MAC address printed as a twelve-digit number on the back of the modem itself, usually with a prefix like MAC or CABLE MAC. If you bought a gateway or a modem/router combo, you'll also have to set up your new wireless network before you can connect your devices and start enjoying your sweet new bandwidth.
