Re: I need a wizard.....ComcastJohnN?

@ComcastJohnN is amazing! Like so many before, he was responsive and quick to solve my issue. This was after so many hours on the phone with Arris and Comcast support and 2 visits from the technician. Please spread the word that it seems this issue stems from using the wrong MAC address when initially setting up the router. When I set mine up, the rep said it doesn’t matter which one you use...completely wrong. Use the HFC Mac IP. If it’s set up with the wrong ID, someone has to manually clear out the bad one from the back-end system. Just removing the router completely from the account and reassigning it doesn’t work. Thank you @ComcastJohnN!!!
