Hello

I had a cable modem installed on a computer in my living room. The way that it is set up is through a 3 way splitter. One cable is connected to a television, while another is connected to the cable modem.

The other port is used to connect cable to another television in a different room. I have another computer in this room. If I wanted to connect that computer to the internet, could I buy another modem and use that in conjunction with the modem that was previously installed?

The modem that was intalled by the cable company is Comcast DPC2100R2.


Thank You


Frank
