Yes that is how I understand. The wireless was turned off on the Netgear for the home security. I also noticed when the tech installed everything and was testing the sensors, he layed them out on my kitchen table, and they where all close to the touchpad. From what I noticed the 2 days that the wireless was off, I was unable to log in from my phone, I didnt try the web portal. also None of the apps on the touchpad worked. I think it works well because the touchpads settings are setup to only see the security router, so even tho I switched them around, it still sees the router and the router still has internet so it connects with no issues. I do have the password I saw the tech use to log into the router, but I cannot find the paper I wrote it on. At the same time I would have to put in the tech "ID" number, so I would hate to make a change and get that tech in trouble. I also have noticed a MAJOR change in speed over the past few days. I am now getting 28 download with a 5 Upload or so, with a 15-25 Ping. I myself am a bit worried about the system tho, since everything is wireless I do think that a Wi-Fi/Celluar scambler would scamble the signel and someone would be able to break into my house WITHOUT the alarm going off. Since there would be no way for the touchpad to call out, and it would not know that the wireless sensors had been tripped because of the scambler. Maybe that is something a Comcast tech on here will see and might can answer. The tech that came to my house, was unsure.

So I have worryed about issues with the netgear between my wireless router. My child had pressed the wireless on/off button and I didnt notice it for 2 days ro so and everything worked fine. I then put my router behind my comcast modem, and then plugged in the netgear for ny xfibty home in port 4 of my wireless router. All funtions from the news , sports etc still work. All of my sensors are still working and I have 100% signal from the wifi on the touch screen. My whole network is faster is speed. I ran speed test with the netgear between my router. I would have a 25-30 ping, 12 download and 4 upload. I now get a 15-20 ping, 15+ down and 6+ up. If you have xfinty home, i would say put ur router behind the xfinty modem and then plug in your home security netgear in the last port of your router.
