Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

We apologize to our xFi customers who are receiving the message “Upgrade Your Equipment” when attempting to access xFi, even though you already have an xFi-compatible device. We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue, and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

If you are experiencing this issue, please continue to report it in the xFi Forum. In most instances, once we confirm the details about your xFi Gateway, we can get it resolved quickly.

Do you mean that after you hooked up the gateway you couldn't access wifi?

If so, you can log into My Account and get the wifi SSID's.

Look for Password.

Sbradle2, have you been able to get your WiFi setup completed? 
Do you still receive an error when attempting to access xFi?

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

Just received my new gateway, downloaded the Xfi app, tried to manage my network - and keep getting the "upgrade" notice. Help?

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

Here's what I get when I try to manage my network; I do have the gateway up and running and the rest of my network connected to it.

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

Oh, the device is *there* - but I'm still being told to "upgrade":

xFi not eligible notification.JPG

Called customer service last night and was assured that the condition would clear "in 24 hours;" I'll try again this evening when I get home, unless there's someone from within xFinity who can make something happen prior to that...

 

 

Regular Visitor

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

Just checked again - all's well. The application starts up as expected, and my system is responding.

 

Guess the wait is the thing - might not be a bad idea for xFinity to incorporate that into their "welcome aboard" info...

 

Thanks,

I was having the same issue. After my initial activation once the internet was up and running, I navigated to register.xfinity.com and I ran the same activation again. And now I do not have that issue anymore. I hope this works for you.

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

@RGDelta - I see why the xFi has not been fully activated, there is an issue with one rate code in the billing system. Please send me a private message with your name, address, and a phone number so I can proceed further.

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

I have encountered the same problem that seems to be plaguing the xFi system.  I was sent new equipment last week, but continue to get the upgrade equipment message when attempting to use xFi app.  Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you

Regular Visitor

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

I am also receiving the "Upgrade for this Experience" message both in the app and on internet.xfinity.com.  I upgraded to the Xfinity gateway yesterday for internet only (I use a separate modem for the phone service).


Could you help me to resolve this?

Official Employee

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

@hockeyguy4 - Got your private message and replied back. There is an issue with the billing rate codes that causing a problem with xFi activation. 

@bschw97 - Did you stop by the XFINITY store to get a new modem? Could you please send me your name, address, and a phone number in a private message? I can help but I need to find out an additional information.

I am also being asked to upgrade my account. When I click on it, it says I have already upgraded. Then it takes me to my account. But I can't get back to the Xfi app.

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

Osodoro, apologies for the delay in response, however I checked your account and it looks like the upgrade issue should no longer be an issue. Please try logging into xFi and let me know if you still receive any type of access errors.

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

I just got my new modem today & am having the same issue. I ALWAYS login to my modem so I can change the settings to not broadcast the SSID for my own privacy but in any event, I'm being looped around & around just like everyone else who is having the problem with the "Upgrade Now" issue. I have already reset the modem & I am also plugged in via Ethernet to my laptop but I can't seem to get the correct IP address to login to the modem & make the changes for the SSID broadcasting.

The tech support offices are always closed during the times when I am up & awake due to my work schedule.

Please let me know what I need to do and thanks in advance!

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

Hi thablakester, can you please confirm if you are still receiving the upgrade message when logging into xFi?

Because this was a new Gateway that you activated, it may have just needed some time to sync up with our systems. At your convenience, please check on www.xfinity.com/myxFi or by logging into the xFi app. 

Let us know if you're still experiencing issues.

Re: Update on Receiving an Upgrade Message When Attempting to Access xFi

That was the problem. There does need to be something that says it could take several hours before access to the app & the Xti website are allowed (if that can be passed along please).

Everything is great now & I'm actually getting the same speeds on WiFi that I do with a wired Ethernet connection.

I will certainly pass that suggestion along. Glad to hear it's working for you now!

I am experiencing the issue with the xFi app as well. It tells me to “upgrade” and when I click upgrade it tells me I have the latest equipment. This is frustrating because my internet connection keeps interrupting and I can’t troubleshoot properly since the app won’t let me log in or access my service.
