    To connect to the interent, do you use a DECA to hook to the router? Or... do you need to use an ICK? Looking thru all the posts, I see both setups. Thank you.

    The ICK really is just a DECA or a special DECA called a Broadband DECA. The idea of mentioning that you need an ICK is that the installer needs to bring an extra DECA and a PI for the install.

    So, I don't need one of the black boxes I've seen posted on here? Just need another basic DECA with a power supply? Thanks.

    Correct. They're essentially the same, just packaged differently.
