Replace Modem

Hello!  I have been having a lot of intermittent connectivity issues with various devices all dropping at different times. It's a pretty old Comcast modem.  What is the process to try and replace this at one of the Xfinity stores? Do I need to contact support first, or can I bring it in somewhere? Thanks!

Hello @user_cbf4d2! Thanks for reaching out to us here on the Xfinity Forums for support!

I'm sorry to hear you've been having this intermittent issue with your network connections.

 

You can either visit your nearest service center with your old gateway and they can replace it for you there, or you are more than welcome to send us a Direct Message with your first and last name as well as your service address, and we can have a new box shipped out to you. 

 

If you are still having troubles with your connection after replacing the gateway, you can send us a Direct Message at that point too and we can take a closer look so we can make sure to get you back to a stable connection. 

To send a Direct Message, please click on the chat icon on the top right of this page, next to the bell. Make sure to send the message to our singular handle "Xfinity Support" and we will get back to you ASAP.

During playback it sometimes freezes the picture and makes a loud, rapid sound
