what have they done with the port forwarding?

Where is the port forwarding option that used to be available int he advanced setting of the router interface? It is no longer accessable fromt the router gateway. it redirects you to the web interface. Then it takes in a circle round and round and never landing anywhere useful. They have removed all all the contact ionformstion so there is no one to call. I have been with Comcast for over 20 years but this change i cannot deal with. i must be able to minipulate those ports at will.

The site provides no help, and leaves on very frustrated..

See if this still applies;

Under gateway--scroll beneath all connected devices--Select "More".

No, this does not help anymore. 

It's really annoying that Xfinity did this without no warning - things used work just fine, but even simple port fowarding setup takes hours and hours fo searching and calling. Really, really disappointed... why can't Xfinity just let those of us who wants to manage the router ourselves do it? xFi website is a joke...  most of it's features doesn't even work, and takes so much more time.

Please, do something about this, Xfinity!
