I currently lease a modem/router from Xfinity . It is an Arris TG 1682 G , at a cost of $10 a month. As my bills keep going up (shocker) , I am in the market to purchase my own. The problem comes in as I need the triple play ( I have a telephone line) and I also need one that will support the Xfinity Home Security system I have. I do not want to have to install a router and a modem, I want one that is like the one I lease that suppports all of my services. Is there one on the market? I have called several times to both BestBuy and Comcast, and no one can give me the answer I need . I was told the Netgear Nighthawk Ac1900 but I dont know if this is supports home security. Anyone out there know if there is one on the market that I can buy? Thanks
https://mydeviceinfo.xfinity.com/ should have the latest info about compatible equipment.
Home security uses its own connectivity device, it doesn't matter what modem/router you use.
Hello, and thank you for reaching out to us. I would be happy to assist you from here. Can you verify your account information with me? I would need your phone number, full name, and service address. You can private message me by clicking my name and clicking private message. Thank you
Does the extra equipment (a hub I'm expecting) come at any additional cost for connecting to a purchased gateway? I just returned my rental gateway and now have a purchased one. I found that the security touchpad is no longer communicating via WiFi (connectivity test failed). I have a tech scheduled to fix this but I want to know if there is any costs involved.
