Modem now available to own with telephone capabilities


There is now a modem which is exactly the same as the popular one that optimum rents to us for $10 a month. Optimum uses the Arris TM822 Modem. The replacement is Arris TM822R which is the same. I now use it and I verified with optimum. Unlike before the price right now is very reasonable which I guess will be while supplies last. The price on Amazon is $84.50 plus tax = $91.79

If you buy it it pays for itself in 10 months and then your saving $10 a month

You can find it online at:

ARRIS Surfboard Docsis 8X4 Cable Modem / Telephone Certified for XFINITY – Download Speed: 343 Mbps (TM822R)

Best Buy online has the same one for $99.99

Important Notice:
  1. One you receive it it is very simple to connect. Transfer the wires exactly as they are on the old one. (Coaxial cable, telephone line, router line usually yellow and the power cord)
  2. You will need to call optimum and have them activate the modem which takes less than 10 minutes ( you can’t use home phone since it needs the modem so you will need a cell phone or someone with one)
  3. Once done everything should be working
  4. Return the optimum modem to the optimum store in Riverhead so they remove it from your account

You are now done!! Congratulations

How to understand and Navigate the Web Site

As we have had many new residents join our web alert system; I thought it might be a good thing to explain what all the links mean on the web and how they can benefit you.

In addition, I want everyone to be aware of some categories of interest.

  • we have a golden anniversary tab where anyone married 50 years or more can have their name and date published. It can be found under FUN Stuff
  • we have a pet link where people can see who your special family member is. It is under Community Pets
  • Under Alerts we publish things like senior scams; people who have passed away, any update senior connections
  • Community Activities has any recreation event and in the sub category you can find any trips planned
  • Activities outside Foxwood you may find any important or fun event being held in the surrounding communities.
  • WE have a “For Sale by resident” category where you can list items you would like to sell or offer up in the community
  • Community Information is where you’ll find the past meeting minutes as well as the rules and by-laws. Forms needed in the community will be posted there and the Village Maintenance schedule
  • Get tips for your health under HEALTH
  • Important Links will take you to the Riverhead Recreation Department, Riverhead paper, Calverton Civic association,Prime time travel, the Suffolk Theatre and more.

MOST important if you can think of something you would like to see on the web, send an email to the webmaster. WE are open to new ideas. If not for some people speaking up, we wouldn’t have our facebook page or for sale by resident.
