It was disabled before and it is disabled currently. I don't have my own router at the moment, only the ignite modem and the switches which are not connected currently since I had an issue.
Okay, that's good. Thanks for confirming. There is no reason why you should not be able to connect devices to the XB6 gateway through a switch.
What type of switch are you using? Are they inexpensive (unmanaged, zero-configuration-required) "desktop" LAN switches, or did you purchase a managed switch or layer-3 switch that requires configuration?
If you have two simple, unmanaged LAN switches, you can uplink these individually to the XB6... but if you do this, then do not ALSO connect those switch to each other or else you will create a loop in your network.
A simple, unmanaged LAN switch should work fine with the XB6. If it not working, the problem should only require basic troubleshooting. Do you see a link light on the uplink connection? Is the cable good? Did you try using another cable? Where did you get the cable from? Is it a proper Cat-5e or Cat-6 4-pair (8-wire) cable?
Is the computer, that is connected to the switch, getting an IP address from the XB6 gateway? If the switch has good connectivity to the XB6, try unpluging the computer's Ethernet cable from the switch, then plug it in again.
After the last update (two to three weeks ago) the short cut: "Exit Exit down down 9434" does not work to bring up the change WiFi network on the ignite tv boxes. Since the boxes DO NOT REMEMBER that they are on Extenders and default to the lower/weaker signals of the base station you need to reset them EVERY time that they do a cold reset/start up. Now the code does not bring up the WiFI network selection screen.

The key sequence is: press-and-hold Exit for three seconds, then key in Down Down 9 4 3 4
