Xfinity XB7 (White / Gray) Gateway - Issues with Local Network and Smart Home
I should preface this by saying this is my second XB7 (White / Gray) latest model Xfinity Gateway. The gateway is actually awesome - great range, fast, stable, etc. The only problem it does have is that it starts to disconnect / kill the connection of:
- Some HomeKit devices (myQ Garage Door Home Bridge - worked perfectly on the replacement gateway for about a month, all of a sudden disconnected after tonight).
- Google Chromecast - again, worked perfectly for about a month on the new replacement, today, some Chromecast sources are not shown.
Once it gets in this mode of blocking local smart home devices, it will start to disconnect other wifi devices as well - Dyson Fans, etc. Nest devices are very stable and seem to not have a problem, and are never blocked.
Has anyone else run into this issue with this Gateway? I am about ready to put it in BRIDGE mode, and purchase a separate WiFi setup if it persists.
