@fd123 Yes, the XB6 has 2 Ethernet ports and you can use a LAN switch to add ports.
Also, for anybody considering getting the XB6 gateway, keep in mind that it was designed by Comcast to be the hub for their Connected Home product offerings (Internet, TV, Home Phone, Home Security, Xfinity Public WiFi Hotspot, etc.) , so this thing (both the Arris and Technicolor variants) has its quirks and is missing a bunch of features that you may take for granted. (No Guest WiFi network, can't set alternate DNS servers, weird issues with port forwarding, WiFi that cannot be completely disabled, and a "bridge mode" that does not actually disable all of the device's internal services. Furthermore, if you use the mobile app to manage the the device, you will find that you lose access to some settings in the local web admin UI.)
That said, this is not really the place to ask technical questions about the XB6. A better place would be to post to either the Standalone Internet With The XB6 Modem or the XB6 Modem Settings/Requests/Firmware Discussion threads.
We have new firmware in certification, for our AC line of modems.
This build brings a few fixes to the GUI functionality and updates to the backend communitcation and telemetry.
For you Coda users, we are expecting a 7.1 test build later this month with a slew of fixes.
More to come on that.
Noticed I was upgraded to 220.127.116.11 this week and than downgraded to 18.104.22.168T2. Reason for this?
Apologies, there was an issue with our firmware upgrade server ignoring our modem exclusion lists. All participants modems are listed here.
This meant modems which should have been excluded from our nightly firmware catch were not.
We have fixed the issue and will get modems which were downgraded back on to our beta firmware 22.214.171.124 asap.
Looking to get some feedback from any CGN3AC users out there.
Please share your experience since last Tuesday when 126.96.36.199 was rolled out.
Over the next week we will be rolling out the next version of our SDK7 code, 188.8.131.52, to those of you on 7.1.x.x already.
New in this build:
Once you have the code please beat it up and let us know what happens.
Great to hear and wishing us all the best! 😎
