Re: Upgrade - Restore configuration?

Most of the settings transferred without an issue. The id/password did not and, while I had disabled 5ghz WiFi on my old router, it was enabled on the new one. Both were easy fixes and all the DHCP reservations and port forwarding was fine.

Re: Upgrade - Restore configuration?

If you use the xFi app to add an XB6 it ships give you the option to transfer everything such as Wi-Fi settings, profiles, etc. over to the XB6. When you get the XB6 I would recommend getting the Technicolor one if you can. It’s better than the Arris one.

Upgrade - Restore configuration?

I'm thinking about upgrading from my current Xfinity device (Arris TG1682G) to an XB6. Can I do a backup/restore from my current device to the new one or do I need to document everything and rebuild all my customizations?
