Get the most from your wireless home network by upgrading your equipment and updating firmware.
Like computers and mobile devices, new WiFi equipment models are released regularly. While you don’t need to immediately update your equipment to keep your home network running, you could be missing out on improved services if you continue to use older models. As a result, be sure to check MyDeviceInfo to find out if your equipment (wireless gateway or modem) is compatible with your Internet speed. After referencing MyDeviceInfo for approved retail devices, visit xfinity.com/learn/offersfor up-to-date information on the speeds and other offers available in your area.
Using a Modem and Router
Note: Most routers support the following types of wireless connection: Wireless-G, which is older, and Wireless-N, which is newer and works better with the higher speed tiers offered by XFINITY. For these higher speeds, you’ll want to make sure you have a router with a Wireless-N connection and at least a 2×2 antenna configuration.
