Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'd like to have a wired connection to my second desktop. I have a cable right next to it, an extra cable modem and everything I need to just plug it in.
I use Comcast. I know have to register it with them, my problem is I can't get a straight answer on how much it will cost.
Phone rep said I'd have to open another line and be charged twice (not going to happen, but I don't think she quite understood).
In store rep at Best Buy (he works for Comcast corporate) said he wasn't 100% sure but he thought it was only something another $5 a month and just calling to register (to be clear he knew I wasn't talking about another cable box/dvr since we also talked about that separately).
Email rep didn't read my question and just told me they don't charge anything, only if I leased and that I'd just have to register the MAC address with them. However, I think he thought I was just going to replace a lease modem.
So does anyone here know? Is there a specific service I'm looking for? Is it even possible to have two cable modems on the same network? I'd just like to get off Wifi on my desktop since the connection has been spotty and running a cable from my router just isn't possible at the moment.
