Legacy Digital Life with New Fiber Service
I moved into a home which used to have Digital life security. The previous owners discontinued service, but all the devices and controllers installed and powered. On one of the first move in days AT&T came out to activate my internet service. The tech checked the box outside the house where the signal came in and then we proceeded to the office which as a CAT5 wall jack installed. He connected the new modem to the wall jack and powered up and it connected and I rejoiced that I had internet and sent him on his way. Now a few weeks later I wanted to stop wasting electricity on the digital life system and I unplugged the DLC100 box in my basement and a second box in my garage which has a blue alarm reset button on the outside. This however then terminated my connection to the broadband fiber service. Plugged them back in and internet returns. What needs to be plugged in for my internet to continue to work and can it be easily bypassed?
