So where within the provided links are the protocols? I see nothing mentioning 802.11ax.

There is no Xfinity support at this time.

There are no combo modem / router gateway devices that I know of yet. You could use a stand-alone ax router such as this with a separate cable modem;

It looks like Comcast is coming out with an XB7 soon. It's supposedly already in testing in some areas:

Aside from WiFi6, the 2.5Gb port on the XB7 looks neat, but until Comcast introduces symmetric or multi-gig speeds over DOCSIS I don't have any use for it. Not to mention it'll have a power brick instead of an integrated power supply.

Heard a rumor from a guy at the xfinity store that multi gig will launch with or shortly after the nation-wide launch of the XB7 for a "reasonable" upgrade fee to existing gig speed customers.

 

Only time will tell I guess.
