Re: anyone know if comcasts x1 works with a with static ip ?

Hello tachikoma, the information provided is correct, the X1 box acquires an IP address from our network and not the in house modem. So your static IP should not be affecting your X1 connection.

I'm not sure what you are trying to determine. The X1 equipment connects to Comcast local equipment (node) and obtains an available dynamic IP. Could you give an example of what you are trying to do?

The business class internet has nothing to do with the X1 box but it's not static.

Andrew,

I seem to recall some old conversations with ComcastNeal where people where asking about using X1 with Business class internet and I remember Neal saying that it could be done but some back office changes were needed. I am guessing that changed at some point???
