I have several questions. I will try not to garble them all together. Today, I began to install xFi, but quickly received a message that I needed to upgrade both my modem and my cable box.
1) First the modem. I have two, one on each of two separate cable lines into my house. I have a retail box (i.e., I own it) Motorola SB6141 in the upstairs room with the cable box and the TV. I have an Arris 1682G downstairs that is wired to my phone and to an ASUS router.
A) Can I simply swap the positions of the two routers for the purpose of getting xFi to work? I am aware that the swap may cause other issues with other devices, but I am willing to figure that out later.
Will I need to have Comcast zap my boxes again once they are connected, or should they simply work once they are wired and booted?
C) Assuming a signal is necessary, what is the best way to do this? Do I need to call the 800 number, or is some easier way?
2) Next, the cable box. The online "Review Equipment" says I need to replace my PA PX013ANM with an X1 TV box. I thought my PA PX013ANM was an X1 TV box. Am I missing something here? Will it be sufficient to simply swap the two modem locations to enable xFi capacity?
