SB8200 - request a second IP address

@ComcastMorgan I'm also interested to see if obtaining a second IP address is available in my area for enabling link aggregation on a Arris SURFboard SB8200 DOCSIS 3.1 modem.

 

Thanks in advance!

FWIW, you don't need to have a second public / WAN IP address for LAG (Link Aggregation) to be able to function.

 

A second IP will enable you to connect another device to port number 2 and have internet access for it.
