Hi inasicksuc,  thank you for reaching out do you currently have  XFINITY wiFi app installed on your phone?  Also  can you lease make sure Auto-connect is turned "ON" under the Advanced Wifi Settings.

Re: my phone keeps disabling my wifi connection at home.

auto-connect is on . i do have the "xfinity wifi settings" app, is that the right app or is there another?

inasicksuc, if you're using an XFINTY mobile device, I would recommend removing any XFINITY Hotspot apps as well as they interfere with features that come with XFINITY Mobile. 

 

Try deleting the XFINITY WiFi settings app if it is an app you downloaded on the device yourself. 

 

Additionally, have you or anyone else recently changed the password? Are you using xFi at home? Can you view your phone's MAC address in xFi?

inasicksuc, no worries, it isn't mandatory. You can learn more about xFi here though: www.xfinity.com/Xfinity-xFi‎

 

 

Can you see your home network on your device? Can you select the option to forget the network and then try connecting again?

Re: my phone keeps disabling my wifi connection at home.

yes it will let me , i will have to try it when I get home. 

another thing maybe you can help with 

I keep call comcast mobile to get my two accounts merged.

i running on two accounts and everytime i call the person says no problem i can fix it but they never do.

now there charging an extra 20 a month(two phones) because my phones and my internet arent on the same account.

and they say they cant take that charge off my bill.

between my phone using all my data when im paying for wifi, and the account issues. its costing me a mint.

inasicksuc, I see. Was a ticket opened to resolve this for you with XFINITY Mobile support? 

 

Let me know if forgetting the network and then reconnecting worked for you.
