Can I add a router to the comcast phone modem?

Last Modified: 2014-05-06
My current network is a slow when kids play their internet games, which is impacting our netflicts etc…. That router is an old airport extreme.

I considered upgrading to a 802.11ac but then I'd have to update my other devices, etc… so I decided to put that off. What I'm considering instead is to setup a second network off of the comcast phone modem. That is a Arris TM502g. Can I just configure a second router off of that?
