Yes. 

With that said, if you truly want the gaming capabilities of the router, you'll need to make sure that if comcasts gateway device has an integrated router (combo device), that you disable that part of it. Or you can put the gaming router in AP mode but you loose the whole purpose of a gaming router.

More details such as model numbers would help to be more specific. 

 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->
