I will add to be sure to discuss the location of your equipment with the installing tech to ensure that it goes where you want it. Should not be a problem as long as power and communication outlets are available.

Anywhere there is a cable outlet in the house that is actually connected to the cable from the street out in the junction box. Mine had only two connected. I had to have Comcast replace the 2 way splitter with a 4 way to connect up two more outlets. Of course they charged for each one.

That is correct! Just tell the cable installer where you want it. LR is best as it is centralized for best reception. Buy your own modem and save on the rental cost. Centry Link may be different but they would not my choice of providers! Best customer service is Brighthouse!

Many thanks for all the advice. Clearly, I'd gotten some bad information about needing to locate the modem at the house's point-of-entry.

We have a cable outlet in every room in our house except the bathrooms. We converted the front room to a man cave which included a computer desk.
Our modem/router is stored in the computer out of sight and to ensure reach placed a range extender in the middle of our house

Our comcast modem and router are in our garage and have been for for close to two years. We have not had any problems. They are located on top of 8 ft. tall cabinets.
