AC3200 connection to a Tekwave Modem


AC3200 connection to a Tekwave Modem

Hi Everyone! 


I purchased a Nighthawk X4S C7800v2 for my previous home when we had Sparklight GigaOne service since we are heavy gamers and streamers. We have since moved and are working with Tekwave satelite internet until we recieve our Starlink services. I was told by the installer that I could connect my Nighthawk to their modem to boost the signal strength and distance. The only connection I can use to it is via the ethernet cable but am having trouble figuring out how to make this work. Has anyone been able to accomplish this?


Thanks for the help!

The C series mode requires a Coax cable line in service thus from a Cable ISP service. If your new ISP already has a specific modem for use on there service and I presume required for there services, then the C series modem can't be used.
