Does XFi work on a Arris SBG6580

Does XFi work on an Arris SBG6580?   I keep getting a communication error when trying to upgrade.  

 

If not, what is the best commercially available Cable Gateway that does support xFi.  I don't want to rent one.

xFi is available to XFINITY Internet service customers with a compatible XFINITY xFi Wireless Gateway (make and model number Arris 1682G, Cisco 3941T or Arris TG3482G). To determine the type of Gateway you have, check the make and model information located on the bottom of your device or sign in to My Account and select Devices to view the make and model.

Those 3 modems are Comcast specific ones that are not availble for purchase anywhere except used on Ebay.  Does Comcast only support xFi on their rental modems?  Do they support any comercial cable modems that can be purchased?  I don't think xFi is worth paying a monthly rental fee.  

 

BTW, I know my model.. it is an Arris SBG6580.  I'm OK with upgrading it.

Those are the only gateways that support xFi, as the web site says.
