    My ISP was Verizon, with 3 linksys routers throughout a house with 70 people in it. Today I switched to Time Warner Cable, but the technician just installed the new modem, and didn't connect it to the routers or anything, and I didn't understand what he was saying I had to do. I barely know anything that he did...he wouldn't answer any of my questions.

    Now one of the routers works great and the other 2 barely work at all. When i type in 192.168.1.1 into my internet browser, Verizon Wireless Gateway shows up. How do I know if Time Warner is even working? How would it be determined which provider would work? I can't cancel Verizon until I know that Time Warner will work because of the amount of people it would affect. Also whatever he installed is ridiculously loud so what is that due to and how can I reduce the noise?

    the old modem is westell versalink model 327W
    new modem is cisco 2100 cable modem
    routers are all linksys Wireless G routers

    There's 2 big things with dozens of cords plugged in that look like ethernet cords and those are the things making all the noise and they say Netgear 24 port 10/100 mbps Dual Speed Stackable Hub model DS524

    I tried plugging and unplugging both modems and I can't even tell which one is working where. Any help???

    actually when I unplug the old router the internet stops working, even if i plug in the ethernet cord, and when I unplug the new router nothing happens and the page still says Verizon Wireless Gateway, so I guess the router working great is still working on Verizon anyway
