XFINITY xFi

Today, 05/08/17, Comcast launched Xfinity xFi, a new and personalized Wi-Fi experience that provides a simple digital dashboard for customers to set up their home Wi-Fi network, find their password, see what devices are connected, troubleshoot issues, set parental controls and even pause Wi-Fi access on their home network during dinner or bedtime. xFi gives customers unprecedented visibility and control over one of the most important technologies in their home.

7. Xfinity-xFi-x1-overview.jpg

 

 

The xFi experience can be controlled via a mobile app, website and on the TV with the X1 voice remote. To get started, customers simply need to visit www.xfinity.com/myxfi or download the xFi app (for iOS and Android). xFi is now available to the 10 million Xfinity Internet customers with a compatible Xfinity WiFi device - the xFi Wireless Gateway or the xFi Advanced Gateway - and comes at no extra cost.

6. Xfinity-xFi-app-mobile-general.jpg

 

 

Compatible Devices:

  • Arris 1682G
  • Cisco 3941T
  • 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

 

Getting Started:

Download the XFINITY xFi app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or go to xfinity.com/myxFi and sign in with your XFINITY username and password. You must sign in as a primary or unrestricted secondary user to access xFi. You can also access the xFi web portal from my.xfinity.com. Simply select the WiFi icon from the top menu on the right-hand side.

 

XFINITY xFi features include:

 

XFINITY xFi benefits include:

  • Instant Setup: Simple, easy setup of Xfinity Internet service and home Wi-Fi
  • Manage On Any Device: Take control with easy-to-use apps, the web, and X1 voice remote
  • Find My Password: View and modify Wi-Fi names and passwords
  • Name & Organize: See all connected devices and give nicknames for easy reference
  • Easy-To-Use Tools: Set parental controls and bedtime schedules for any family member on the home Wi-Fi network
  • Who’s Using What: Create personal profiles and assign devices to individual family members
  • Text Alerts: Receive alerts when new devices join your home network
  • Pause With A Tap: Instantly pause Wi-Fi access on your home network, by device or user
  • Voice Control: Say "show me devices" into the X1 voice remote and see results on the biggest screen in the home
  • Monitor Activity: See who’s most active on your home network and when
  • Troubleshoot Wi-Fi: Identify devices that are not working properly and receive tips to fix them
  • Cloud Management: See and control your home Wi-Fi network from anywhere
  • Safe & Secure: First line of defense against phishing and malware

 

Later this year, Comcast will launch no-configuration, adaptive xFi pods that can be paired with either the xFi Wireless Gateway or the xFi Advanced Gateway, which will help customers extend their Wi-Fi coverage to even the most remote areas of their homes. The company has made an investment in Plume, a leading developer of distributed Wi-Fi software and systems, and is working with them to combine the technologies of Plume and xFi into a unified experience that improves throughput and consistency to individual devices and provides even easier and more seamless whole-home Wi-Fi coverage.

XFINITY xFi Not Working.

Trying to use the new Xfinity Xfi app as well as trying to access it on the xfinity website to no avail. I have a compatible gateway (Cisco DPC3941T) so that is not the issue. Both the app and the website says "Settings Not Available". Any thoughts? I attached 2 pics. Thanks.

Mine is working now. Gateway was updated from 2.3 to new version 2.5 software this morning and everything works great. It must take the v.2.5 software to make it work.

Please secure access to the My Account & XFi apps!!

Can you please allow using pass codes and TouchID for accessing these apps?!? Without that it's way too easy for someone to open the app and view your wifi passwords!

Make sure that the user name you are using is the primary account or an unrestricted secondary. If you are the primary account holder or a unrestricted secondary, you might need to verify and see if you have the necessary equipment for the service. If you do then try doing a reboot of the modem as it could potentially have an older firmware. Let me know if this helps.

Re: XFINITY xFi Not Working.

I'm the primary account holder and I have the Cisco DPC3941T router so that's not the issue.  I rebooted the modem about a month ago to get higher speeds.  I can try the reboot again.  Can I do a soft reboot or do I have to disconnect the power from the modem?

Yeah, you will need to disconnect the power from the modem then. Can you try doing this, and let me know if it still continues after?

Re: XFINITY xFi Not Working.

FWIW, if it has a back-up battery installed in it, you will need to remove that too for a powercycle operation. Otherwise a quick 2 second press of the reset button (with it powered up) should do the same thing.

Can you try accessing the site using a different browser? If not can you try checking the app once more? 

 

Here you can find some info on how to activate the gateway with the Xfinity XFI mobile App. This is just so that you get familiar to how it looks.

Re: XFINITY xFi Not Working.

Tried Chrome, IE and Firefox.....none work.  App still not working.  According to the documentation, I don't need to activate the gateway because I already have the proper hardware.  Neither the app nor the web site give me the activate option anyway.  Ideas?

Re: XFINITY xFi Not Working.

I'm having the same issue.  Customer Rep said I needed the new Advanced Gateway xFi modem since the DPC3941T was having issues.  The only way to get a new one is through the Comcast Store.  The employees at the Comcast Store said that they don't have this new modem and that it normally takes weeks for them to get new equipment. 

Frequent Visitor

Re: XFINITY xFi Not Working.

I don't think the modem is having issues, I think the solution is having issues.  It was only just rolled out 3 days ago, so some issues are understandable, but it doesn't feel like this solution was thoroughly tested with currently deployed hardware.  It certainly isn't ready for GA.  I get it that there may be difficulties accessing this particular type of modem, but telling customers they need to get a different modem isn't the answer.  The answer is fixing the solution.  Odd that the "My Account" app and it's related functions on the web site seem to work fine when accessing these modems.  (I do get it that it's different information they are accessing.)

Re: XFINITY xFi

Would those xFi pods be free of charge when they get rolled out or will there be a charge for them? Im assuming you guys are probably going to charge per xFi pod.

Thank you for the details. We are working on making some corrections on our end that should help with your issue. Please know that your current device does support xFI, this is actually the same modem I currently have at home and it works without problem. The team that handles these type of issues is looking into your problem and should have a resolution in place soon. I will update you once we have it fixed.

There is no need to swap out the equipment, your current device does support the xFI. We are making some corrections from our end that should be able to solve this problem you are having.

Yes, you can use Plume pods. However, at this time, they are not integrated with xFi, meaning you can't manage them through the xFi web portal, mobile app or the xFi app on X1.

Just wanted to update you on this, for an immediate resolution we will need to do a factory reset on your device. The only problem with doing a factory reset, is that you will lose any of the current settings you have enabled for the gateway like your network name, password, port forwarding, etc. The team is still working on a fix that wont require you to do a factory reset but it will take some time before the correction is in place and pushed out. I can always update you once I have more info.

Re: XFINITY xFi Not Working.

I was having continuous problems with the new app when it was first activated too.  I had to completely uninstall the app from my phone and all computers in the house. One of the other issues that I was having was that it would only allow my computer to connect to an unsecure xfinitity hotspot.  I have not put it back on my systems yet as I am still having issues with my systems working with the upgrades that I installed on my computer and the upgrades on the internet network.  For information purposes I have Windows 10 Pro Enterprise Ed and Office 365 Pro with a virtual network in setup mode.  Because both of my computer and phone systems are in pre-release mode the assumption is that there is a conflict between the app and the security in the operating systems.  Which I can say is true shutdown your windows essential firewall and try and see if that helps.

Re: XFINITY xFi Not Working.

Customer service and tech support factory reset my device 15 times it didn't fix it, as long as that app is in place it blocks my internet access through wifi.  I have had a tech at the house three times, modem reset and restored quite a few times, even completing factory restored any other connected device.  Nothing worked I have a suspisicion that it may have something to do with IPv6 protocol and the imbedded security protocols in all systems nowadays but that is just my input.

It can work for some customers depending on the problem, but not for other issues. The engineering team found a fix for your issue, but they are currently testing it to ensure it does not cause other problems. I still don't have any estimated time for when the fix will go live, but I will make sure to update you here.

Xfi help with device association

Xfinity has created a new mobile app entitled Xfi. This app is supposed to give users greater control over their WiFi network. After regeristering for the app you are supposed to list authorized users of your WiFi network and then associate the various devices that have been cleared to use the network with each listed user. 

 

When I try to associate devices with users the app shows me the beginning of a number that identifies the device. However I have no clue what the number is. It isn't the beginning of the MAC address which is the number we use to register devices in the modem/router software. and the number isn't long enough to identify what the number is. So how do we identify each ddevice so we can associate it with an authorized user?

I downloaded the new Xfi. The network that is indicated as mine is a different name and shows a different password than mine. The network name shown does not show up as an available network. Why is my network not what Xfi is listing?

Re: XFINITY xFi

XFi works fine on my home equipment and Android phone.
Gateway is Arris tg1682g w/triple play and X1 home DVR and small remote satellite hd boxes.
Phone is Galaxy S5 running Marshmallow.
I ready had been using the Xfinity app on my phone for X1 and gateway equipment troubleshoot ability and gateway login access for wifi troubleshoot and channel choosing.
Now with XFi, the Xfinity account app erased the ability to log into 10.0.0.1 into gateway via app and overwrote that advanced app feature with xf1 that takes me right to the seperate XFi app now. Only way to access gateway login via 10.0.0.1 is to use a web browser and type it in. I liked the previous way of being able to access gateway 10.0.0.1 via Xfinity account app better than having both apps solely using XFi .
Please put back in the Xfinity app, under advanced options, the link to access gateway login page. This was a great feature before and I used it all the time to troubleshoot and even see how long ago my gateway rebooted itself. Invaluable for knowing if problems Are reoccurring.

Re: Xfi help with device association

If you scroll down to the bottom in th device panel, there is a Device Details right arrow.  That has the MAC Address, among other things.

soundslike a great idea except you have to have Comcast equipment and the rental fee attached. Should at least be available as a priced option or even free for people who own thier own equipment.

Re: XFINITY xFi

I have several questions.  I will try not to garble them all together.  Today, I began to install xFi, but quickly received a message that I needed to upgrade both my modem and my cable box.

1) First the modem.  I have two, one on each of two separate cable lines into my house.  I have a retail box (i.e., I own it) Motorola SB6141 in the upstairs room with the cable box and the TV.  I have an Arris 1682G downstairs that is wired to my phone and to an ASUS router.

A) Can I simply swap the positions of the two routers for the purpose of getting xFi to work?  I am aware that the swap may cause other issues with other devices, but I am willing to figure that out later.

Will I need to have Comcast zap my boxes again once they are connected, or should they simply work once they are wired and booted?

C) Assuming a signal is necessary, what is the best way to do this?  Do I need to call the 800 number, or is some easier way?

2) Next, the cable box.  The online "Review Equipment" says I need to replace my PA PX013ANM with an X1 TV box.  I thought my PA PX013ANM was an X1 TV box.  Am I missing something here?  Will it be sufficient to simply swap the two modem locations to enable xFi capacity?

Re: XFINITY xFi

I have an Arris TG862G modem from Comcast, so I would need to upgrade the device for Xfi. When I tried to order new equipment, a message said that I didn't qualify (or some similar word) for the upgraded equipment. Can you enlighten me about possible reason(s) for this? Is it the market I'm in, which is Savoy, IL, a small village adjacent to Champaign, IL? Is it the bundle I have, HD Complete XF? Something else?

Re: XFINITY xFi

I swapped out my DPC3939 gateway for the Cisco 3941 so that I could start using the xFi app. I have called Comcast 4 or 5 times in the last few days and no one is able to solve my problem.  After I launch the app on my phone and enter my wifi info and submit it, about 5 minutes later it keeps telling me that it cannot find my gateway.  When I enter the app on my DVR or try to set up xFi online, it keeps telling me that I need to upgrade my equipment.  I just swapped the gateway out yesterday - am I supposed to wait for the billing to catch up?  Thank you for any suggestions.

Xfi Restriced Access

The new Xfi app is wide open to anyone who is able to watch TV in your home. Why is there not, and will there be a way to add the app password to Xfi on the TV App? This should be similar to how you can add the password protection to the "My account app".

 

Currently the Xfi app on X1 TV allows for the person accessing to see network passwords and other info that should be blocked to admin.

 

There is a way to requre all apps to have a parental control password. This is not good, as this blocks everything (Netflix Sports and weather apps).

Please provide a solution to this security problem.

I downloaded the new Xfi. The network that is indicated as mine is a different name and shows a different password than mine. The network name shown does not show up as an available network. Why is my network not what Xfi is listing?


I asked the team that handles these types of issues to look into this. I will update you once I hear back.
