comcast phone

comcast phone

I just changed my service today and will have comcast phone.  Currently I have a netgear modem which has the cable coming into it and a wire going out to my wireless netgear router.  Would I connect a phone to the netgear router?

Re: comcast phone

If your Netgear doesn't have telephone jacks, it won't work with their Voice phone service. If you don't want to rent from them, you need one of the devices shown on https://mydeviceinfo.xfinity.com/ when the "Voice/Telephone enabled" box is checked.
