1. Your wrong Comcast doesn't route the traffic to a Xbox on a different DOCSIS channel as XBOX supports 802.3 and some 802.11n/g. You a completely ignorant to Layer 2 DOCSIS MAC DOMAIN and it shows. Start around page 32 to educate yourself »www.cablelabs.com/specifications···0210.pdf
2. Who owns the network means everything that is what the debate is about. Companies spend Millions upon Millions in building up their own networks and they are not about to let anyone push traffic across it for free that is what peering costs are all about.
3. Xbox doesn't have a DOCSIS modem built into and it doesnt' support VLAN tagging. So it only has one MAC domain to the router or Cable modem and the DOCSIS modem isn't parsing Private or Internet traffic, it's all on the same Layer 2 DOCSIS MAC layer.
You are still cracking me up trying to convince everyone your understand something you clearly have never worked around and are clearly a DSL user to boot.
Stop trying to act like you know what you are talking about and stop lying. You are the only one trying to argue that traffic that does not leave your network does not count as the internet even when it is on a publically accessible network with routable ips. Comcast is not arguing that. Hell you dont even know the different from an intranet and internet. You admit you have no idea what is the internet.
Why would you think an xbox has a docsis modem built in to bring bring that up? No one claimed this but you.
Cant you read the article??? Comcast is using extra bandwidth on the docsis channel not used for internet to route the xbox comcast on demand app traffic using service flow settings to their router which keeps the xbox app traffic on their private not internet accessible network. It stays segregated on a private network and not the internet or any publically accessible network.
Its like you just want to argue for the sake of it.
The only way to stop a company from limiting how much of their network they use for internet and intranet is to separate content providers and isps. -- ...brought to you by Carl's Jr.
Your xbox is going to get a public or at least an internet accessible ip address just like any other computer on your network or just share one internet IP on your router.
But the xbox comcast is going to route all data for the xbox on demand app through a different docsis channel or unused docsis space @ their modem to their private intranet ondemand servers.
Your xbox comcast ondemand traffic only works on the private network through their modem not the internet.
You claimed it private MAC Layer to DOCSIS modem then onto XBOX.
It's not the way the network works. Bone up on your education.
I'm not lying just pointing out you don't know what you're talking about. As you are just Trolling.
