    Yeah, usually the cable cos. have a sign up deal where you can get the modem dirt cheap. CompUSA has a deal here for a modem for a sign up with Cox.

    Also, if you can get a dedicated cable line rather than one that is split you'll have faster speed.

    Some ISP's (like mine) charge extra monthly for their modem, which is usually a pretty generic modem at that. I was having connection problems (with Adelphia's generic COM21 modem), so I went to Best Buy and picked up a Motorola Surfboard 4200. I've had absolutely no problems since.

    It's not absolutely necessary, but I would consider a cable/dsl router. They're pretty cheap right now and it'll add a layer of security. Plus you'll be all set to add more PCs in the future.

    check with them there may be a deal with them and best buy.
    I got my modem for $10 after rebate.
    $9.95 install special with the cable co.

    Depends on the ISP. Who are you getting your service through? Most companies will sell/rent you everything you need. If you can get away with it, you should get a NIC card (unless your comp has one built in or you have one already) and a CAT5 cable to go from the modem to the PC. That's really about all you need. They'll supply the modem usually.
