It appears to be of U.S. origin, since the labels over the status lights are in English and a sticker on the bottom says it conforms to FCC standards.

I came back to the states for Christmas and will return in a few days.
I have a nice wireless router here. Do I need to bring it with me or rely on Cablemas for it when I sign up for service?

I had Cablemas installed in October. They brought a wireless modem/router that has worked fine. It is their property, but is included in the service. If you are using a Mac, make sure you are using the latest OS. We were one version behind and had problems until we upgraded.

So, you will need to be at home (they'll keep coming by until they catch you at home) or be able to understand enough Spanish when they call your cell.
Which means you should go to a cell phone store and get a phone (preferably without a plan if you are only using it locally for necessities). A local number will make your life easy.
The internet is fast. With a basic cable subscription paying month to month, there is no set up or installation fee (or there wasn't for us since the house had service previously) and costs $504MP a month. We pay onliine. Unless you have a credit card issued by a Mexican bank, you will have to pay your bill in person or pay online.
Online (although in Spanish) was fairly easy to set up.
And we had to upgrade the Macs to Snow Leopard to make it all work seemlessly.

I am off island and am considering buying their router stronger antennas. Anyone know if the antennas unscrew or if there is a better idea?

Our complex has wifi & the router is in the unit below us. At first we had no problem, but they recently changed routers & we started having issues. Plugged an extender in and it cured the connection issue. Something like this:

Mike - are you saying that router extender would work on a 2nd (or 3rd) floor if the router was on the first floor? That is the issue in my home away from home hotel in Coz... I have to go to the lobby to get WiFi. I would gladly invest in one of these to be able to get WiFi in my room.
Yes, that's what we have now. really hadn't even known about an extender until we started having issues with the router below us. Our property mgr. installed one & it is working fine now. With the original router, we would get weak signals in various parts of our condo and when they put a new router in below, we couldn't access it at all. Now we have access throughout.
