Re: Have to Recycle Power on Xfinity Modem/Router Constantly
I am having this same problem. It's infuriating not being able to speak with anyone most of the time, and if I can get someone on the phone they just tell me to swap the router again.
However, I found this thread https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Your-Home-Network/xFinity-Router-Gateway-is-blocking-a-specific-website/td-p/3340837#
This sounds like my problem, is it like yours? There are specific websites that get blocked, but for me once it happens it will block everything. As long as I don't go to any odd websites, which I have to do a lot for work, everything runs fine. But when I trip something, I have to reset the Modem just like you describe. Using a VPN seems to get around this, but it's not reasonable to run a VPN on my small children's computers.
>>>>Can anyone tell me where turn off the "Advanced Security" as described in this old thread?<<<< The software seems to have changed and the old instructions are no longer valid. Xfinity automated system has hung up on me 3 times in the last two hours!
