Leaving the cable to the phone jack unplugged plug in the power and wait for the modem/router to boot, look for the wifi indicator if it is blinking then see if you have wifi. On a windows pc it will say limited connection no internet. If you get that notification then your local network is up with no internet. Now try to use CC to transfer books.

Next unplug the power cable from the modem/router, now plug in the cable from the phone jack and then plug in the power cable, wait for the modem/router to boot.



That box is called a RT(Remote Terminal) and it should be within a half mile of your house.

bernie
I can tell you the RT (or box thingy) is about 20 feet from my house. But it is not the one messed up. The fourth & fifth box down the from me are messed up.

I will try your suggestion when I am able. Sorry hurt my bad knee and having problems moving.

i didn't want to reveal too much more of my ignorance, but don't you need wifi- not wired, for CC to work
in which case having fire tablet ->usb adaptor -> ethernet is not a solution ?

You might get a USB network dongle for your emergency kit

After viewing the docs on that modem
I had another WAG (Wild A**ed Guess )

That modem can have both a Private and a PUBLIC (AKA Guest) access network.
Be sure you are accessing the Private SID (from BOTH devices) or you will not be able to see other devices on the private network.

This is how everyone else's wireless networks work.

HOWEVER I acknowledge it's in the realm of possibility that Frontier did something remarkably stupid and restrictive, and made it impossible with this device. Not likely, based on my experience and briefly skimming the manual, but not impossible.

If that's the case, my recommendation would be you invest $20 or $30 in a normal wireless router and use that instead. Your current box can plug into the new router to provide the Internet connection. (in other words, you'd just use your current device as a DSL modem).

Then all your wireless devices and CC stuff can happily talk to each other all the time, regardless of any actions by AT&T, Amish, or cows.
