New to this world with many questions!

Hello, I’m new to the world of crypto mining and crypto currencies. When setting up a miner at home, do I need a separate internet plan just to service the miner? I know this is baby stuff for most of you but if you could bear with me I would really appreciate!

Question is why would you think you need a separate internet ISP connection?

The miner plugs into the cable modem or router or whatever your network is setup like. It sucks up packets and outputs them just like watching stream TV shows.

Now, if you need to have ports open like 44158 and your ISP does not allow this port forwarding, then you need to start looking for a new ISP.

That’s very helpful to think of it that way. For some reason (ignorance basically) I thought that it needed a dedicated internet line or something like that. Thank you for helping!
