Can you please further explain the xi5 or xi6 setup with xfinity modem in bridge mode? I’d like to use the wireless boxes with my personal router in a room that does not have a coaxial connection.
I think the way others xfinity customers have accomplished getting the xi5 or xi6 to work wired via ethernet or wirelessly to their personal router is by introducing the Xfinity coaxial network to their personal router network via a moca box at the cable entry point with a splitter. One connection to a bridged xfinity modem and the other connection to a moca box that is then connected via ethernet to their personal router.
Is this a possible solution?
the Comcast gateway is recognized by other x1 MoCA connected equipment as a hub. once the MoCA over ethernet from a comcast Hub is working, then you can use extenders or wired AP (access points) as wifi connections to the xi5/xi6 devices. if you put MoCA mesh on the same band (letter) and range (number) as the Comcast mesh uses, the Comcast mesh will idle until your 'hub' is offline. It is not stated in public how Comcast X1 equipment accomplishes this without using a password but the effect is same (a private mesh).
