Firmware updates

Does Xfinity update the firmware on our routers automatically or do we need to update the firmware for the routers we borrow from them?

Do you have their gateway? Their gateway is automatically updated. Modems and other gateways are also automatically updated. If you have your own stand-alone router, then you are responsible to update it.

Thank you so much for the reply!  I have their Arris model TG1682G router.  Think they update firmware on those?

Yes. It’s their gateway. All modems and gateways connected to the Comcast network get their updates automatically pushed by the CMTS.
