Zeshan> do you still use CC host name
Chris.8510 > Please wait one moment while I bring up your information, and research your issue for you.
Chris.8510 > I'm sorry, Comcast isn't licensed to support 3rd party hardware installations. You will need to contact the manufacturer for assistance. The only thing I can tell you is that you need to set it for use with a dynamic IP address. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Zeshan> Thanks for your help
Chris.8510 > Thank you for contacting Comcast. Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Chris.8510 > I meant what does it do. Regardless, we don't know what they are looking for when they ask for a hostname. You will need to contact them.
