Just got Comcast, Need Help!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I got the extreme package from comcast the other day, and I didnt get a router. I know that you have to have a router to use multiple computers on the network, but is the comcast free router good?

I did get a dlink router, even though I hate dlink. and picked up an EBR-2310 Wired router, but about every 5 minutes, the internet gets really shoddy and quits until I do a DHCP release/renew. Is there a way to fix this, Should I get the comcast router, or should I just get something nicer?

If u get the Comcast router and you have connection problems, call them to fix it.

Buy your own router and do your own troubleshooting.

Easy choice.

LoL, read these reviews... click on feedback

Dont get that dlink router, it is only 10/100 and will throttle your connection. Find a good gigabit switch or router and go for those.

if you passed it up on your initial installation they might want to charge you. Here they charge $150 which is rediculous so if they do get your own netgear or linksys are nice ones not dlink

I agree with getting your own router. However, if you did request to have a technician help you install it from the get go, they should not charge you anything extra. I'd fight customer service.

Update us with how your service is after the new install.

Glad your all set.
