connecting more than one computer to xfinity or is there some other way to connect more computers

Can my main computer be hooked to the modem and less used computers use wireless?

If you are using one of the comcast issued wireless gateways the XB3 models offer 4 ethernet ports for hardwired computers and the XB6 models have 2 ethernet ports.  Depending on your speedtier the wireless would have no issues supporting 8 or more devices.

Thanks - I looked at the modem and it looks like there are 4 connections but I cna't see where the model name is. I had a notice to upgrade my comcast modem so maybe I should check into that. I like to leave things alone when they are working!
