Upgrade - Restore configuration?

I'm thinking about upgrading from my current Xfinity device (Arris TG1682G) to an XB6. Can I do a backup/restore from my current device to the new one or do I need to document everything and rebuild all my customizations?

Most of the settings transferred without an issue. The id/password did not and, while I had disabled 5ghz WiFi on my old router, it was enabled on the new one. Both were easy fixes and all the DHCP reservations and port forwarding was fine.

If you use the xFi app to add an XB6 it ships give you the option to transfer everything such as Wi-Fi settings, profiles, etc. over to the XB6. When you get the XB6 I would recommend getting the Technicolor one if you can. It’s better than the Arris one.
