Sorry about the "SB6" vs. XB6. Will proofread better next time. Thank all of you for your helpful answers.

As an addendum, if you're looking to use the link aggregation feature on the DS718+, note that the XB6 only has 2 ethernet ports, and doesn't support link aggregation. You'll need a separate switch or router that supports that feature. 

Other than that, any commercially available NAS will work on the XB6 (using a QNAP TS231+ here, and it's working well).

Obviously a typo, since the OP included the model too.

As to wether those devices work with the XB6 is another matter. They "should" since they connect by ethernet and reside on the network. (USB connections if any, are usually disabled on Comcast rental devices). If running into problems, guess you could always bridge the device and use a stand alone router.
