How To Troubleshoot Your Home WiFi Network with XFINITY xFi

 

 

xFi Gateway Restart

 
If you are experiencing home WiFi connectivity issues, you can restart your Gateway from the Overview section of the xFi web portal, mobile app or xFi app on X1. Scroll down to Troubleshooting and select Restart. Select Continue to confirm. It can take up to 10 minutes to restart your Gateway. During this time, you won't be able to use your home network, connect to the Internet or stream video on certain TV Boxes. If you have XFINITY Voice, you will not be able to make or receive calls, including emergency 911 calls, until your Gateway is back online.
