xFi vs Airport Extreme - thoughts?

So the xfinity store folks gave me a new cable modem.   Now I have to figure out whether to use the new xfinity wifi or put the modem in bridge mode and continue to use my airport.

 

I know the airport has it's own firewall, and can allow me to make guest accounts.   The xfinitity store didn't know much about the service, and I can't find on line what xFi can and cannot do, nor how secure it is.

 

Curious to hear waht other Mac users have decided...

Keep your extreme. Just switched from AT&T U-verse because of the shrinking you were available. The Xfinity people have no clue about Apple. As far as I can tail the XL five anyway nicely with the airport extreme. I have a network extreme PlayStation into extenders and the Xfinity gateway refuses to provide the correct domain address to the Apple. It’s really kind of pathetic. I i’ve had my stream extender set up for years refused to stupidity. Your support is so bad that they didn’t even give me the correct domain name that I can manually put it into my Apple router.
