Do I need second IP address for second port on SB8200?

Hi, I'd like to use both ports on my SB8200, one for direct line to computer and one for the wifi router. Will my existing xfinity account accept this, or do I need a second IP address from Comcast to make this work? If so, how do I go about getting the second address, as the rate card for my area does not include this. 

 

Thank you, Colleen

Yes, you do.

 

They are phasing it out but I'm going to escalate your issue to the Comcast corporate employees that are available to these boards. We've seen cases here where they have been able to get this accomplished for customers even when it is not listed in their rate cards, YMMV. You should get a reply here in your topic. Good luck !
