Re: New XB7 gateway but no WiFi6

From: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Your-Home-Network/New-XB7-gateway-but-no-WiFi6/m-p/3330540

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide work-at-home orders, the XB7 Gateways launched 4-6 weeks early with the following known issues:

Wi-Fi 6 is confirmed disabled. Samsung devices may show as Wi-Fi 6 connected due to a bug in the Samsung firmware (patch due next month). An upcoming XB7 firmware update will enable Wi-Fi 6 and fix the slow Wi-Fi speeds, release date not set.

FYI -  XB7 users on the DSLReports Comcast forum are reporting that a new firmware update, "CGM4331COM_3.14p7s1_PROD_sey," has now been released that enables Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax): https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r32469291-Equip-XB7-Technicolor-CGM4331COM-Arris-TG4482-Wireless-AX-Wi-Fi-6~start=450

FYI - An XB7 user on the DSLReports Comcast forum is reporting that another new firmware update, "CGM4331COM_3.14p8s1_PROD_sey," has now been released. It hasn't been determined what this new update now fixes/adds/changes:

Both of my XB-7Ts went down around noon yesterday while working.
 
I checked online Comcast and it stated maintenance was started in my area for 30 min.  After about 20 min, both gateways rebooted and had software updates to CGM4331COM_3.14p8s1_PROD_sey  I was on p7 before that.
