Hi, I'm new to this forum. We just got a Roku Ultra for our 10 year old Sony HD TV and I got it connected OK, but I'm not super tech savvy.
Next, we're planning to discontinue our cable TV and landline phone services from Xfinity. But, we would like to keep Xfinity's internet service for our pc desktop, laptop and iPad, and their mobile phone service for our iPhone XR phones. We are also planning to buy our own modem/router combo instead of renting one from them.
I described our normal internet usage (for my wife and I) to the Xfinity counter guy, and he gave me a list of approved modems. He also suggested that we could switch our internet speed from Xfinity Blast! Pro (250mb) to Xfinity Performance Select (100mb) - a $25/month savings.
I would appreciate any recommendations on which modem/router (combo/gateway) to buy?
Also, are there any compatibility issues with the Roku Ultra and the main popular modem/routers for sale on Amazon, such as the NETGEAR Nighthawk Cable Modem WiFi Router Combo C7000?
I have no idea what you are saying. I could really use a simple , easy, woman’s approach to how do I deal with xfinity. I am so confused , I cannot stand it. I want to pay as little as possible for Comcast, but I gather I am going to have to get xfinity stream....OK...HOW ?
Bit of a necropost but one way myself and a few friends have handled local sports channels is to use a VPN service and order MLB or NHL, etc.
If you are technically competent, you can get a cheap wireless router, install a custom firmware (DD-WRT) and have it be a dedicated OpenVPN client that you connect to for sports. Totally legal. You just need to pay for whatever sports app package you want (NHL, NBA or MLB apps on Roku).
