Customer Question
I have Comcast internet...

I have Comcast internet and TV, a TP-Link Modem, and I would like to be able to connect to the internet with more than my desktop. I therefore purchased a WAV Link Router which the instructions say I should connect to the modem and computer and then call my service provider which is Comcast. Are you the person I should contact?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

Phillips, 10 years or so, but the problem is not with the TV, it works fine. I am interested in Internet connectivity via WIFI.
