I'm replacing my Xfinity modem/router with a Netgear Nighthalk AC1900 which does not have a phone jack. Can I plug my phone line into the computer and still get Xfinity service?

FWIW, if they already have a router so they don't need a combo modem / router "gateway" device. They need a cable modem that supports phone service. An eMTA device to be exact.
Yep "AC1900" is not an exact model number. They did not yet state the model number so we can't know for certain what they have.
