Asus Wireless Router

Can I use an Asus dual band wireless router as opposed to using the Comcast router component of my modem?

Re: Asus Wireless Router

Yes as long as you put the Comcast gateway in to bridge mode;

Re: Asus Wireless Router

Thanks for your wisdom.  is it worth it to switch to the Asus wireless router given that I have the Xfinity  pods connected in different rooms in the house?

The pods won't work without the Comcast gateway.

Re: Asus Wireless Router

I got you.  So is it possible to have the Comcast Gateway and still have the Asus Router working at the same time?  is this redundant?

The gateway would need to be in bridge mode.
