Non-CenturyLink (also referred to as "third party") modems have not been tested with the CenturyLink network. CenturyLink highly recommends using one of our approved and certified modems, which have been tested and approved to work optimally with our high-speed internet technology.
CenturyLink technicians are unable to install service with non-CenturyLink equipment. So, if a professional installation is required for new service, your technician will use a new recommended CenturyLink WiFi gateway to set up and optimize the connection. After that time, if you are able to successfully connect a third-party modem, you can return the CenturyLink modem.
Please note that modems from cable internet providers do not work with CenturyLink internet service.
