can two modems work in one house

January 4, 2011 at 12:26:15
Specs: Windows 7
One house divided into 4 "apartments". Internet is provided by oceanic cable company. Modem is in middle apartment and the tenant unplugs it when he's feeling creepish. I bought a lynksys wireless router and a verizon cell network extender to have in my own apartment, but the modem is the issue. Can i buy a $40. modem and a cable splitter, and run off the same service/IP address?? or what? There is cable line/cable service running into my apartment, but i am unsure if a second modem will work. HELP!!

You cannot run two Modems of the the same connection, they will be competing with each other to synchronise and only one of them can win and both might lose.

You will need a separate Internet account on a separate cable with your own IP address.

Pay up for some ISP on your own.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Who's name is the internet service listed under? The "creepish" teneant? Do the other 3 tenants pitch in to compensate the "creepish tenant" for the cost of the service?
