We use this result together with the connections between the Tukey ordering and topology found in [2] to give a characterization of separable metrizable groups. We prove that a separable group is metrizable if, and only if, it is Frechet and the the ideal of converging sequences to the identity is Tukey below some basic order that is analytic. Results in this direction have been obtained before in [1].
