    Question Comcast Second IP question

    I was thinking about getting a second IP from Comcast. I believe that in order to do this I have to get another cable modem. My question, if anybody knows, is when I get the second IP, do I get a connection like if I was in the next house?? Meaning the same bandwith, instead of sharing it as when I use a router.
    ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Exclamation every Isp i was with gave 2

    i always had 2 ips with every isp, and it was free, but if you have to get a diff modem and pay another $40 a month, then yeah bandwith will be doubled,

    That is great. I was thinking to have 2 accounts. One to connect and run my File appz (horses related, and such) and the other for normal surfing and web hosting (maybe some serious gaming too).
    Is it a good idea?? Plus I am moving next to my sister, so we can share Internet, but I don't want to punish her with slow speeds because I am always doing something online.

    Err... for a low price I would be careful, it might just be a second IP, not a second account... should call them to clarify.

    also, when you move next door to sister, you should consider wireless, IE, she gets a connection, then you can share it via wireless next door, or visa versa.

    This is common in apartments, well sometimes when the owner doesnt know ... so i heard.

    Well, why wireless if we are at 100 feet away maximun with a nice ceiling
    Wired we have a more secure connection, and more bandwith for the LAN. I usually have all the music in my PC, so my sister can access it thru the LAN
    Thought, the problem is that we don't want to share the bandwith. IT is not that I don't want to share, but since I use my bandwith so much, I don't want her Internet connection to be too slow. Mine becames too slow sometimes.
    My mother has that problem, whenever my brother is playing online, her connection gets so slow that she cannot even login to yahoo (She had a lot of spyware too, but I cleaned that)
