I had the same problem. After buying these devices at the urging of the seventh service technician who has visited me, who said this was the only option to make Xfinity work properly, the pods did not work out of the box. Two hours on the phone with another technician telling me I must be too stupid to install them myself, I finally gave up and returned them to the Xfinity store. Yet another technican then called back to say the problem was Xfinity's server which prevented the pods from working. They said it should be "fixed soon." If you believe this assurance, I have a bridge named Brooklyn for sale with the Xfinity pods pre-installed.
I'm having the exact same problem. I recently moved home and the tehcnician replaced my router without me even considering that I needed to 'remove' the XFi pods from the old one. I can't activate the pods anymore and after several calls and hours with advanced technicians I've not been able to resolve it.
One technician claimed that there was a nation-wide outage for enabling pods but looking over the posts here it seems that someone needs to reset or de-register the pod serial numbers on Comcast's servers to properly reset them.
Thanks for taking the time to post on the forums about your pairing issues with the xFi pods on your new account.
