xFi Issues After New Router Arrived and Configured

xFi Issues After New Router Arrived and Configured

I downloaded the xFi app for Android. I logged in using my Xfinity account credentials. The app said I needed new equipment before I could use the xFi features. From within the app I acknowledged I wanted the new equipment shipped. Within days not one but two new routers arrived. I followed all the directions, including disconnecting the old router, and enabled the new router. Cable TV and VoIP phone worked. WIFI signal transmitted on both 2.4 and 5 GHz networks. Devices could log into the networks; however, the internet was down and would not work. After several hours on the phone with several levels of tech support, the internet was properly provisioned on Comcast's side and it began working. 

 

When attempting to enable the xFi app and logging in with proper credentials, the app again will not go further than saying I need an equipment upgrade. When I acknowledge I need new equipment (even though I don't but there is nothing else I can choose on the app at this time) the system reaches out and comes back with a message that it looks like I already upgraded. At this point when I attempt xFi features I get routed back to the Need New Equipment screen. 

 

This continuous loop continues even went accessing the Xfinity website (and yes I'm logged in) when I depress the wireless/wifi icon on the top banner of the webpage the computer is directed to a xfinity xFi "Upgrade for This Experience" site.

 

Therefore, I cannot leverage any of the xFi features and I am very frustrated.

 

Thank you in advance.
