I'm posting this with an answer because I could find no solution on either xfinity or linksys/velop forums. This configuration is between a Linksys Velop model WHW03 and an xfinity modem/router model TG1682G. For many months starting July 2018 - I successfully ran a "mesh" wifi network via the Velop system by setting the xfinity modem/router into "bridge" mode and connecting the master Velop node (1 of 3 nodes) via an ethernet cable to it. Everything worked perfectly until March 2019, when after a power outage, the Velop master node could no longer establish an IP address via the xfinity modem/router and therefore, could not connect to the internet. I also noted during troubleshooting that even a laptop "hard-wired" via an ethernet cable to the xfinity modem/router was not being assigned an IP address while in bridge mode. For this reason, the only way I could get my xfinity modem/router to disable "bridge" mode was to call support and have them do it. Long story short, the Velop system does not require bridge mode. I called Linksys and they had me restart the xfinity modem/router, then the Velop master node hardwired to it, WITHOUT CHANGING the xfinity router into "bridge" mode. The Velop master node was then assigned an IP and was able to connect to the internet. So... after confirming all was well with the other two Velop nodes, I connected to the xfinity modem/router and disabled it's WiFi on both frequencies while NOT enabling "bridge" mode and all is working from my Velop WiFi now. Hope this helps someone.
