Some Xfinity Home Touchscreens Can Be Paired via In-Home WiFi
Hello all -
I'm posting this just for general knowledge... at this time this has no impact to the configuration of Xfinity Home for our existing customers.
With the release of our latest Xfinity Home Touchscreen Firmware, certain Touchscreen models in some markets can now be paired to a customer’s in-home WiFi network when a customer-owned modem is in use (or has an Internet provider other than Comcast).
When configured in this manner, this eliminates the need for a separate Netgear WNR1000 Security Router.
At this time, we are only using this configuration on a small number of new installs, and at the discretion of the installing Technician based on several factors.
Some additional information can be found in this article.
