My Gatewaz is TG1682G. I tried to pause all type of devices. From iphones to ipads and my macbook. Without sucess. Those devices cans still connect to the wifi and access the internet.
@MonBug - I replied back to your public thread. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Same issue were with pausing devices and bed time mode not working. I contacted support (via chat). They gave me a ticket number and said it would be 24-48 hours. I have a feeling that this issue will not get resolved even know I have a ticket number... Seems like the latest update with the xFi app created this problem. I'm running xFi versions 1.5.0 (10500029) on my iPhone.
@Blynn0603 - Please provide names of the devices you are having issues with and I will submit a ticket for Advanced Repair to investigate.
@jlmank33 - Your ticket has not been picked by an agent yet. I will keep an eye on it.
We are investigating each incident one by one.
I would like it to be documented that I'm not pleased with the customer service so far. I first reported this issue to Comcast on Thursday, October 19, 2017. I was suppose to received a call 24-48 hours. I did not receive that call. I had to call in. During that conversation, the tech was disconnected and did not return the call at the number provided to him. I enable a chat session with you in-which the tech stated that ticket CR739668176 was resolved, but it has not. So, they had to give me a new ticket number and stated it would be 24 hours or a maxium of 72 hours. Just frustrated with this issue and treatment from Comcast.
I am also unable to pause devices (although they showed they are paused).
I was unable to do the first step. I could not find where it said enable to disable under managed devices. There was just a message to go to xfinity site and I can't find an option there either. I looked under parental control and connected devices. If possible could you list your exact steps you used to get to managed devices.
PS I did try to uninstall and then reinstall app and that did not work.
Blynn0603, thanks for the reply... I do not see anything that says managed devices. Attached is the only titles I see. Clicked under each drop-down section, but did not see anything that states managed devices.
@jlmank33 - The thread was marked as Solved because one of our users marked reply from ComcastShane as a Solution. I revoked the solution. Your ticket is still open, the advanced repair team assists all regions, they will definitely reach you as soon as they can.
@mcrone5 - I submitted a ticket for you, the advanced repair team should reach you and address this issue to engineering team.
Thanks for the link to the information RobertWy! I'm glad that there is a problem on Xfinity's end and not the customers. Since Thursday, tech has given me the impression that the problem is very isolated, but I believe it is bigger and needs to be addressed ASAP. As of right now, everytime I check on the status of my ticket, they create another priority. (Tech has created 5 and counting), shouldn't one be enough? Like watching a dog chasing its tail here.
@jlmank33 - Every time when you call in or chat with our Tier 1 support about technical issues they have to create a ticket. If you want to check on the status of your ticket, you should reach Tier 3 support directly, Tier 1 agent won't be able to provide any updates. They simply don't have an access.
You can also reach me directly and I will check the status for you. Thank you.
Talked to an level 3 agent, she tried some different things, but was unsuccessful. She schedule a repairmen to come out to check my modem, ect. After getting off my cell phone with her, I noticed that she ended up knocking out my telephone service. Instead off calling back, I just waited for a repairman to come.
The repairman showed up and told me that he has no clue of the xFi app and they do not handle that. But he was able to get my phone fixed (the phone that the level 3 agent messed up) and he said that modem ect. looks good.
Thankfully, I was able to get ahold of Zack from Comcast National Repair. He is getting my repair ticket escalted to Comcast Engineers. He has been in contact with me to make sure things are getting done.
So for anyone having this same trouble, do not give up! Same yourself a lot of time,frustration & aggravation and call the Advance Repair Team <Edited. Info is not for public>. I have gotten further with them in less than 24 hours than I have in 4 days will the usual customer service!
I will post back Zack's findings & how they fixed it once it is fixed.
@jlmank33 - Please don't post the number for the Advanced Repair. This team is the highest level of tech support and only serious issues should go to their queue. You also have to have an open ticket in order to reach an agent, otherwise the system will transfer your call back to the main 800-XFINITY line. Both agents you've talked to are Tier 3 techs from the same team.
Excuse me! I believe you have a serious issue here espcially, when lots os people are having the same exact problems only to get the run-around from lower level techs. I'm sure I'm not the only one on here that is having this problem, have spoken to numerious agents (a level 3 agent that ended up discounting my phone service in error) from various levels and had spend countless hours on phone & chat. For those reasons, that makes this pausing/unpausing and bedtime mode not functioniong a serious issue!!!
@jlmank33 - You are correct, this is a valuable issue that requires an escalation to the engineering team. This is why I submitted tickets to Advanced Repair team for those customers who posted in this thread and replied back to me with their information. But this is an open forum where any internet user (not necessarily a Comcast customer) can access this page and view the number. It's not going to be helpful if people with simple issues like a password reset will try to reach a Tier 3 team, while other people with difficult issues like you are waiting on the line.
