Do I still need Comcast?

Hello!

 

New to the Community, Meraki Go, and network set-up in general. Apologies if this is a silly question...

 

I plugged in my Meraki Go access point but there's no internet. Do I still need Comcast in order to actually get internet?

 

Thanks!

Hi @LarryF - 

 

Yes, you will still need your Comcast connection. You'll also need the Meraki Go access point plugged into the Comcast modem with a network cable so it receives signal. The Meraki Go access points will turn that connection into wifi for you and your customers, allowing you to secure and control the wireless in ways Comcast won't let you.
