Default Installing CenturyLink

If I buy CenturyLink internet service online it will mail me modem router but asks do I need help setting it up. My question is I'm in Lady lake and have cable coax sticking out of inside walls in all the rooms, so can I just hook up to those ports or do I need someone to run wire from outside the house inside.

Also is there a store I can just go to or do I have to mail it to me. Any input is appreciated.

I think you need to hook up through phone lines with Century Link unless you had century link tv before in house and they converted coaxile cables from Comcast to their own.

I did it myself without any problem. The directions were very straight forward.

There is a store in Lady Lake. Next to Jersey Mikes in front of Target.

Hi, The very best thing you can do is to search YouTube for how to connect your Century Link modem to the computer. It is very simple. I'm a female who does all this stuff. Your modem connects right into a phone line, mine is right under my desk, and then you will have a power cord which plugs into the modem and the back of your computer tower.

They were going to mail the modem out to me for a self-install. I insisted on them coming out because I didn't want any remorse over this that or the other thing going wrong. One hour before they were due to come out they called to try to get out of coming and get me to try to do it myself. I declined and its good I did because it was a S**T Show because Century Linkster was never installed in my house before. Two weeks later they sent out a team to bury the cable that the landscaper chopped into oblivion! They temporarily ran an ORANGE highly visible wire around the yard to the box, Have them install it. It's worth the $60. Good Luck.
