Xfinity xFi Review 2021

Guess what—it’s your favorite writer, Rachel Oaks. I gave my Netgear CM400 and Netgear R6220 a break to test the xFi Gateway just for you. Here’s how the setup went down:

When you’re a new Xfinity customer, Xfinity will ship your xFi Gateway and everything you need to install it for free. But since I’m a veteran Xfinity customer, Xfinity would charge me about $50 for shipping (a rough estimate from my Xfinity agent).

To save time and cash, I went to my local store to pick it up instead. There was a bit of a wait, but the store had good social-distancing practices, and I was there for less than 10 minutes total.

Back at home, I started the setup using the Xfinity app. When the app worked, setup was a breeze—but then the app went on the fritz.

I got kicked out, and I had to dig through all the menus (the Xfinity app has so many menus, y’all) to pick up where I left off. Thank goodness I’m comfortable poking around in apps. Otherwise, the situation would have called for a long conversation with an Xfinity agent.

After all the troubleshooting and the more run-of-the-mill wait times for the xFi Gateway to activate, setup took me about 50 minutes in total. Connecting my seven smart home devices to my new Wi-Fi network took another 30 minutes.

That’s almost an hour and a half total—switching routers is no joke, y’all. I do this because I love you.

Comcast announced a new version of its xFi Advanced Gateway, one of its modem / router combo products you can lease with your Xfinity internet, today at CES. This new version has support for Wi-Fi 6, which is optimized for faster speeds and to better handle the ever-growing number of networked devices we have in our homes.

In addition to Wi-Fi 6, Comcast says the new router has four dual-band antennas that support both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, one 2.5 Gbps Ethernet port, three 1 Gbps Ethernet ports (the previous version had two), and Bluetooth LE and Zigbee radios to connect to IoT devices. It also comes in a nice-looking new white — the previous generation came in black. And if you use Comcast’s xFi Pods to make a mesh Wi-Fi network at your home, Comcast says those Pods will still work with the new Advanced Gateway.

Comcast tells The Verge the gateway will start rolling out in January.

The new gateway isn’t available to all Comcast customers, though — you’ll have to be on one of Comcast’s plans with speeds of 300 Mbps or more per month. But if you are on one of those plans, the new gateway will cost the same to lease as what you’re already paying today, Comcast’s VP of xFi and Digital Security Dave Puckett told The Verge in an interview.

Comcast also announced that its xFi Advanced Cybersecurity, which offers additional security protections for your network, will be available to customers who lease an xFi gateway at no extra charge. Comcast says the now-free service will be rolling out to customers over the coming weeks, and new Xfinity customers will have the service turned on by default. Once it has rolled out to you, you can manage the service through the xFi mobile app.

XFi Advanced Cybersecurity was announced at CES last year as a $5.99-per-month subscription on top of what customers were already paying for internet and to lease the router from Comcast. If you were already paying for it, Puckett said that you won’t have to anymore. But if you’re a Comcast internet subscriber and use your own modem or router, you won’t be able to get xFi Advanced Cybersecurity at all — it’s a benefit offered only to Comcast subscribers who also lease a Comcast gateway.

Enabling the Bridge Mode feature of the Comcast XFINITY® Gateways

v0.1

By clicking the CONFIRM button I accept the Terms and Conditions related to the migration from Linksys Cloud Manager 1.0 (LCM1) accessible via www.business.linksys.com to Linksys Cloud Manager 2.0 (LCM2) accessible via www.cloudmanager.linksys.com for all devices purchased with the LCM1 firmware including LAPAC1200C, LAPAC1750C, LAPAC2600C and all regional variations.  Migrating from LCM1 to LCM2 provides for new functionality, but also changes and eliminates other features. Those that are comfortable with the functionality provided in LCM1 do not have to migrate but should know that Linksys will not be developing new functionality based on the LCM1 platform. Details of the changes are outlined below. Please read carefully before initiating firmware migration.

Important facts to be aware of before migrating:

Once Access Points are upgraded with the new LCM2 firmware, these Access Points cannot revert back to LCM1 firmware or be used with the LCM1 platform.

The firmware update is required for the Access Points to work with LCM2. Please make sure you are comfortable with the feature changes before migrating over.

Existing LCM1 users will need to create new accounts in LCM2 in order to use it. All LCM1 account information, including user profiles and network settings, will not be transferred to LCM2.

Linksys will continue to operate the LCM1 platform for the duration of the 5 year term offered, then end of life the service. Once Access Points are upgraded, this 5-year cloud license for LCM1 is replaced with the new license terms for LCM2. 

Access Points upgraded to LCM2 firmware will have access to LCM2 for the lifetime of the product.

The migration to LCM2 brings new improvements over LCM1 which are listed here (Link to marketing document), but also changes and eliminates some functionality currently available in LCM1:

No Stand Alone Option

The AP will not provide the capability to be configured and managed as a stand-alone device (with exception of configuring connection parameters, i.e. IP address, subnet mask, gateway, VLAN).  All management features will now be cloud based.  Once configured, the AP can continue operating without a cloud connection, but a cloud connection will be required to make configuration changes.

No Historic Data

Data usage statistics of clients and APs will be real-time only – i.e., populating for the duration of the active cloud session. No historical statistics will be available, e.g. past 7 days, last 24 hours with the exception of online/offline status for devices.

Rogue AP Detection, Block Clients, Band Steering

Not included in LCM2 launch version.  To be provided in future releases.

 

For any technical issues, please consult our online Linksys Cloud Manager 1.0 to 2.0 Migration Guide or contact us at https://www.linksys.com/support. For North American phone support, call our dedicated Business Technical Support line Monday-Friday, 5am-11pm PST at: +1 (877) 855-6899.

How to Install and Activate Your Xfinity xFi Gateway with the Xfinity app

How to Set Up a Comcast Wireless Gateway

Your Comcast Wireless Gateway is fast and easy to setup.

This guide will walk you through the process.

  2. Connect the power cable to the back of your Gateway, and to an outlet in your home.
    Diagram showing power connection.
  3. Wait for the Power, US/DS, and Online lights to stop flashing and go solid for one full minute.
    Diagram depicting modem lights going solid.
    When you first plug in your Gateway, it can take up to twenty minutes for it to automatically sync, update, and reboot multiple times with your Comcast service.
    Do not unplug or turn off your Gateway during this time.

Devices can be connected to a network in two ways: wired or wireless. In order to continue, we need to determine the type of connection your device has.

A wired connection is provided by an Ethernet cable. Most commonly, these are used by desktop computers and other equipment you don't move around often.

Ethernet cable plugged into device

If your device is not connected to the router with a cable, then you are using a wireless connection.

  1. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to your Gateway.
  2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your computer.

  3. After a few moments, your computer will recognize the connection.
In order to connect to a wireless network, you must have the required credentials. These are:
  • Wireless Network Name (SSID)
  • Wireless Network Key (Password)

Finding Network Credentials

Most wireless routers or gateways have a label with the default credentials. If the credentials aren't there, check the documentation that came with your device.
Default Wi-Fi credentials highlighted on router / gateway sticker.

If your Internet Service Provider (ISP) installed the wireless router or gateway, they might have left you a setup sheet which may have the credentials.

Wireless gateway xfinity

I was clearly missing something. Security guard Seryoga, with an effort, with hot breaths, intermittently puffing and moaning, entered me and began to drive. Like a piston of a Zhiguli engine.

It seems to me that at that moment she LOVED me. And I - her. A woman who likes is yours.
