Hello. I was wondering if anyone could explain to me how an Actiontec v1000h modem decides to get a IP/Gateway address for Internet access only, or for Internet and Optik TV?
TIA

I think the Actiontec modem/router uses the same WAN IP address for both Optik TV and Internet. Optik TV is a TV over IP (IPTV) service. Therefore, there is no difference between the data packet from from the computer or Optik TV box.

But Actiontec treats the data packets to and from the Optik boxes with higher priority than the data packets coming from your PC or tablet. This is the reason why that you can add more Optik box to a point that you need to increase your internet speed in order maintain the good TV service and your computers need.
