Upgrade of wireless router

Upgrade of wireless router

Got notification that I need to upgrade my wireless router. Do it yourself or schedule a tech which will cost $$. How complicated is this to do on your own?

It shouldn't be difficult; they give you several ways to do a self-install instruction.

Re: Upgrade of wireless router

I wish to swap out my comcast supplied router and have their home security system.  Is that also self install if I were to buy my own router or do I need them to come to set up the cameras and sensors?

Re: Upgrade of wireless router

Comcast will have to install a router for the XHome system.

And if you have Comcast phone, you will have to purchase an eMTA:

I had the Xhome router until I got an upgraded gateway that had it built-in.

 

I have chosen to rent a single box from Comcast because I don't have room for a modem, router, eMTA, and Xhome device.
