What is entailed to install a Gateway system? Why does it have to be done by a technician? If you add a portal later on can you do it yourself?
It has to be done by a tech, because the Gateways and Portals, almost need to have their own network, and all the needed pieces are not included.
Add a Portal later, maybe, depends on how the tech setup the system the first time (not all cable outlets may work with the Gateway)
If you have an idea were one might go down the road, mention it to the tech and he could probably set it (Moca filters.) up now so its ready for the equipment later.
The guy that came here did just that when I asked.
