Recommended Routers for Comcast Modems

by Karla H

Routers are used to allow an Internet connection to be shared. They allow multiple computers and devices to have access to one connection by directing traffic to the network. In the U.S., Comcast is the largest Internet service provider for residential customers. Comcast customers are able to use a router that allows their Internet connection to be shared wirelessly throughout their homes. Though many brands and models can be used with Comcast service, there are models that the company has recommended based on performance and compatibility.
