Activating 2nd dynamic IP on SB8200

I have a surfboard 8200 and I need help getting the 2nd port from the modem to provide another IP address. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Re: Activating 2nd dynamic IP on SB8200

First, check the "Rate Card" for your local area to see if that feature is even available anymore. Seems that it is being phased out;

 

https://www.xfinity.com/support/rate-card/

 

It's a PDF.


Scroll down to "Xfinity Internet" and look for "Additional IP Addresses".

 

If nothing is listed then it's likely to have been discontinued in your local market area.

Unfortunately, the world is running out of allocatable IPV4 addresses; this has been known for decades.
