How Does CenturyLink Work?
In most areas, including in Foley, CenturyLink provides Internet to your home through preexisting phone lines. Internet that relies on existing cables is known as DSL cable. Technically, dial-up Internet is a form of DSL Internet, but other types of DSL–including those CenturyLink provides–are exponentially faster than dial-up. And, unlike dial-up, modern DSL Internet lets you use your home phone and your Internet simultaneously.
The first step to getting CenturyLink cable, then, is to ensure your home is wired correctly. Next, you need a modem, which is a device that “modulates” the signal between you cables and your computer so it can access the Internet. You can purchase or rent your modem from Centurylink.
Next, if you want a Wi-Fi signal, you need a router, or a device that turns the Internet from your cable into a wireless signal. Routers and modems are often combined into the same device now, so you may not need two separate pieces of equipment. Check with your CenturyLink store to learn more about your options.
If you don’t need or want Wi-Fi, you need an Ethernet cord that directly connects your computer to your modem so you can use the Internet.
