Public xfinitywifi hotspot not working anymore

The public xfinitywifi hotspot that I have been using for the last 3 months is no longer connecting on my tablet or android.

All of a sudden the connection stopped working.

I have a Comcast modem and the hotspot is enabled.

Any help would be appreciated.

So just to be clear, it is the *public* hotspot that is broadcasted from your gateway and not your own *private* WiFi home network broadcast / SSID ?

Have you power-cycled your gateway?

 

Is the xfinitywifi SSID seen in the wi-fi list of SSID's?

Is it the *public* hotspot that is coming from your gateway device or is it a neighbor's, a retail establishment's, or perhaps a pole mounted *public* hotspot ?
