Re: Activating new XB6 modem

Not  exactly sure what "network 5" means but are you talking about activating that device for service on the Comcast system ?

network 5 is what you are seeing from your computer; it's just a name that the computer assigned to your new network.

Have you found the web site for activation?

Re: Activating new XB6 modem

Assuming you have the XB6 properly connected to the coax cable and power and your computer, easiest way would be to call 1(800)XFINITY and use the automatic activation method.

Hook it up and use the Xfinity xFi app on your smartphone. I activated mine this way last week and it took about 10 minutes.
