call forwarding

I recently recieved the new Arris TG862 based on a recommendation from Comcast.  Since I recieved the new equipment I am unable to forward my phone utilizing the online option.  I can only forward my phone by using *72.  Please advise as to why this is the case.  I didn't have any problem with the old modem.  Thank you
