My comcast account provides up to 600 mbs though put, of which my current 3.0 modem can only handle about 25% of that speed, whereas the 3.1 modem is rated to handle 1gig/second if i can run two. Here are some scenarios to keep in mind when making a.
Is it possible to buy a 2nd modem and connect it to another coax jack in the same house, having both then running on the same account?
Can you have two modems in one house xfinity. Next, one quick wifi setting change could save you a lot of problems: By using the same name and password for both, your devices can move freely between them. Stand alone modems that are certified to work with xfinity internet and voice services (which there are only 2) only have one ethernet port which malfunctions a lot and wifi disconnects a lot too.
These gateways support all residential. If you mean two straight cable modem or two combo modem / router gateway devices, most systems no longer allow two modems to be used at one address. However, one modem must be dedicated for internet, and one modem must be dedicated to the telephony service.
In fact the company i work for actually does it all the time to provide voice service. Two modems will mean two phone lines (or cable/fttp connections or whatever it may be) and usually that is going to mean two charges (and probably installation fees for installing a second line etc.). An xfi pod can give you a boost.
It's best to call in to see what the local policy is. Yes you can have multiple comcast internet circuits (comcast gateways) at your business. You only have one line coming in to your house.
Meaning, if you have too many splitters in line it will fuck up your signals going to your modem. The only way this is permissible is if there’s. But if you have a slower plan like performance starter or performance select, your internet will work fine with a cheap modem like netgear cm400.
You cannot have two modems that both have internet, but you can have a voip modem and a cable internet modem like this. Not to mention that depending on how old the modems are, they may even be end of life, and comcast wouldn't activate them anyway. So technically it would be 2 cable modems on 1 line.
Frequently there will be two identical modems on a site, one provisioned for data, the other for voice. It depends on the system you are in. I can’t answer for other providers, but for comcast (who i work for), if you have xfinity internet and xfinity voice.
Some you need 2 different accounts and some you need a residential and a business account. You can have two modems on one account, however you have to pay the regular monthy charge for that second modem. Use one network name and password.
I mean you can, but policy won't allow it. I had 2 modems on the same account both active for years without anyone noticing. But there is nothing to prevent both modems from having either, or bot.
Both of which run off of a cable modem, you can have two modems in the house running off of their own coaxial cables. Better for larger homes with 5+ bedrooms These default settings can also be customized in the modem settings or through the app
Since noone mentioned it yet, if you hook up and intend to use multiple modems for internet, you'd have to pay for a separate internet subscription for each modem. It is possible to combine the functions of a modem and a wifi router into one device (sometimes called a wireless gateway or modem routers) which some providers may offer instead of a modem. Explain to them that the house is already served by an active cable subscription but your landlord isn’t willing to let.
Our basement doesnt get good wifi, and the house isnt wired for ethernet, but there is another coax outlet down there so i'm hoping i can just buy another modem, hook it up, and then have a connection option down there. The 2.4 ghz band will reach all the way up to your bonus room, and still give you the bandwidth you need for your next binge session. Can i have two cable providers in the same house?
Some systems you can have 2 modems on the same account. Even if they do allow it, you will need to pay for two accounts (twice what you are paying for hsi now). Most modern gateways (such as xfinity xfi gateways) broadcast two network names at the same time, one optimized for speed and one optimized for coverage.
How to choose a router. You're paying monthly for internet 3 times. Also you have to consider that modems require the best signal to operate.
You can't have two modems on a single plan. You will need to contact the business sales department to add another circuit to your physical location and this will be a separate internet service charge per. Yes michael, it’s indeed possible to have multiple cable modems in the same house, and it isn’t all that uncommon.
