Linksys Router compatability with basic service

My Daughter is moving to Hyde Park in Chicago. The building offers a basic internet connection for $25/month. Can I use my existing Linksys MR7350 Mesh Wi-Fi Router (Wi-Fi 6 Router, Dual-Band Wireless Mesh Router for Home Mesh Network) to boost the signal throughout the living space?

Thanks, Wayne

If you use a straight cable modem with it, yes. Also yes if you use a combo gateway device, but the gateway device will need to be put in to bridge mode.

Hi there, @Carlin98

 

I want to help! Are you asking if you can use the modem as the modem on the account? We only allow one modem per account for internet service, in most areas. If you wanted to use as a modem for the services, it can be used. If you have any other questions please feel free to send me a private message!

FWIW, the Linksys MR7350 is a stand-alone *router*, not a cable modem or a combo gateway device.
