FWIW, these are the three gateway models that are Xfi capable;


The Arris 1682G. The Cisco 3941T. And Arris TG3482G.


Re: Parental controls NOT working

If you lease a Comcast modem now, you can just swap it for a newer device that has Xfi. It wouldn't cost you any more money.

Parental controls NOT working

Right now, at this moment, this computer should not have internet access according to the Parental Control settings!!!! Does anyone have anything that actually works?


I have followed the instructions to 'add device' under 'manage devices' for the old modems that don't get the fancy xfi whatever service. I have restarted the router twice. I have turned wifi on and off. I am on my third hour trying different things...



- Burn it down: buy a modem and router from somewhere else 

- Give Comcast more money: Upgrade to xFi modem that supposedly does this


Any other ones to be able to turn off internet on a schedule?


Thanks, Comcast for everything. It's been a pleasure. If there were literally any other provider in my area, I would be using them in a heartbeat.
