R6900P. Nighthawk AC1900 Smart WiFi MuMimo

Hi

I apologize if this has been all ready answered by the community, but I do not want to open the box until I know if this router can support a LAN line?  

 

Merry Christmas!

   What does "support a LAN line" mean to you?  Visit
http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (or anything else).  Read.

I get the sense you don't what a router is or how it works. Might also be using the wrong term for what you wish to accomplish?

 

LAN line? Or did you mean LAND line? LAN is Local Area Network, and you need a router usually (not always) to create that. LAND line would be associated to a non-Cell or ISP phone, the old Plain Old Telephone System (POTS) phone.

 

Also not knowing what you really want to know, you should figure that out and post here, https://community.netgear.com/t5/Cable-Modems-Routers/bd-p/home-cable-modems-routers, the forum for the product you have.

Hi

 

I meant land line (telephone jack)--too much Christmas cheer!  I did go on line and was able to view a user manual.  I did not see a phone jack on this model.  My goal is to buy a router/modem instead of a monthly fee from Comcast/jXfinity.  Any suggestions?

Those are units that have a 'V' after the model number. You need and eMTA and those have it included.

 

My ISP (Spectrum) does NOT officially allow user owned eMTA units, so check before getting one.

 

This one, https://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/cable-modems-routers/CM500V.aspx, says it is for your ISP, but I'd check with them before getting it.
