Jus trented a high speed modem from xfinity. It is 5 g but I have an old device that only connects to wifi via 2.4 g. Does the new modem have both bands?

Yes. 

The two WiFi bands have recently been combined into one with the Comcast gateway devices. 


If you are not using any Xfi Pods, you can try separating the 2.4 and the 5.0 bands and give them two different broadcast names / SSID's;

Associate the devices with the 2.4  band's SSID (broadcast name) and password.
