Connectivity to the router C7800

Yes, where I live I have a dish satellite from AT&T. I would like to find out if the router C7800 is compatible, to connect to the router.

Re: Connectivity to the router C7800

The C7800 is a coaxial modem device. Its not capable of connecting with dish service. 

You could get a router only device and connec to your current gateway. There'd be a few settings to change but it should work. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole

Re: Connectivity to the router C7800

Not sure what you mean by "It could help me about the connection"?

A coaxial modem connects to coax isp like xfinity/cox/spectrum.

If you've already got a gateway from your dish services then you'd want just a standard router like the R**** series of routers. 

 

here's the series:

CM: coaxial modem only

C****: coaxial modem/router

R****: router only models

RAX: AX routers

D****: DSL modem/router devices

EX: extenders

EAX: AX extenders

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole

   "coaxial" is not the important part.  A satellite gizmo might use
coaxial cable, too.  What matters is what's at the other end of that
coaxial cable.  A Netgear model Cxxxx, CAXxxx, or CMxxxx expects to talk
to a cable-TV ISP, not to some satellite gizmo.

   Not a Netgear model number.
