Ignite Wifi HUB Assigned Devices Showing up as Unassigned

We have created profiles and assigned devices to users.  This lasted about 5 days when all of the devices then showed up as not assigned.  They cannot be assigned back to users.  I then discovered that they ARE still assigned, somewhere, because time limits, off times and bedtimes still work. 

 

I deleted one profile, created a new one, and assigned profiles and this worked.  Tried it for another user, it did not.  A "new device" came online and was able to be assigned, and it still showing that way days later, to an existing profile. 

 

A tech support case was opened for this a week ago and assigned to "engineering", I followed up on Thursday and there was no update on it. 

 

I know the software is Comcast and Rogers might be limited, so I went to look to see if they have this problem.  It seems they do, but I could not find anyone with a solution to fix this.  (see here: https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Xfinity-xFi/Assigned-devices-no-longer-assigned-and-are-now-renamed/td... ) 

 

If it matters, we have pods.  

 

Any ideas?  This is not local to our modem, but I have powered everything off and on.

Re: Ignite Wifi HUB Assigned Devices Showing up as Unassigned

who Hello, @Don_Ca

 

Thanks for posting your concern in the Community!

 

I know how important it is for the user profiles to work properly in order to manage your Wi-Fi Network properly.

 

This is not an issue we've encountered here in the Community as of yet. Are there any other users in the Community experiencing a similar issue with the assigned devices in the user profiles in the Ignite Wi-Fi Hub app? Some of our RE's may be able to provide some input on this matter, I will be sure to tag them into this post. @Gdkitty, @-G-, have you noticed a similar issues with the Ignite Wi-Fi Hub app?

 

If you have not already, please uninstall and then reinstall the app on your device. Try setting up the user profiles with assigned devices again.

 

Let us know if issues are persistent.

@Don_Ca  Do you see the same information when you log into the Ignite WiFi Hub web portal as you do with the mobile app?

 

Also, do you get WiFi in your home using only the Ignite XB6 gateway + Pods or do you have other equipment (such as WiFi extender) in the mix as well?

Yes, only the Technicolour CGM4140COM and the pods.

I see the same thing in the app as on the web, which I expect since that part of the app is only a web interface loading the mobile version of the site. I did uninstall the app, and it made no difference, as I expected.

For RogersTony, I said in my post I tried deleting profiles with mixed results.

I know I am not alone, not just because of the Comcast customers with the issue, but also at least one person on DSLReports sees the same thing happen.

Re: Ignite Wifi HUB Assigned Devices Showing up as Unassigned

I am also experiencing this. Once I got up to around 6 people is when I noticed random devices had disappeared from being assigned.  I also noticed that you can assign the “Unassigned” device to a different person but you cannot assign it back to the original person. 

 

Not sure if it’s related but I also notice that the devices tab will show ALL my devices as “Not connected”.  This is impossible since I Have 60 devices and am currently watching tv with 3 teenagers all streaming. 

Overall the app seems pretty flaky.

Re: Ignite Wifi HUB Assigned Devices Showing up as Unassigned

I do not have that all not connected issue. Mine show up as they should. Have you tried to forgot a device showing as offline and see if it comes back?
I only have 4 profiles. Devices first assigned on a Saturday and then "unassigned" on the Wednesday (4 days). Not a good experience.

The all unassigned comes and goes and really only shows briefly.  Most if the time it is populated with attached devices (I assume correctly haha).

Re: Ignite Wifi HUB Assigned Devices Showing up as Unassigned

I had a text that there was a delay working on my case.  I did a chat with an agent and he says he himself has had 3 or 4 customers report this since about March 1.  These cases are all escalated.  He said if more people report it the higher priority it will be.  

 

Note that this is really a Comcast problem, this is their software probably running on their servers.  I suspect a software update around March 1 had introduced this problem.
