How do you activate xFi pods?
- Sign in with your Xfinity ID.
- Select More on the bottom right of your screen.
- Select Xfinity Device under Add a Device.
- Select xFi Pods.
- Tap Get Started to begin activating your xFi Pods!
Correspondingly, do the xFi pods work?
The Pods have a maximum throughput of 200 Mbps, and that was in a lab setting. That means while connected to a xFi Pod, expect maximum download speeds between 100-175 Mbps. The Pods only work with Comcast's app and gateway. If you own your own modem or router (for Wi-Fi), the Pods will not work.
Likewise, how do Comcast pods work? The polygon shaped Pods plug into an outlet and form a mesh Wi-Fi network with your Comcast router so you can extend your Wi-Fi signal to the corners of your home. The Pods work with either the xFi Wireless Gateway or the xFi Advanced Gateway.
Subsequently, one may also ask, why are my xFi pods not working?
Make sure your xFi Pods are visible and not blocked by furniture or other large objects. Try unplugging the xFi Pod and plugging it back in. Check for a small light on the front of the xFi Pod. If no light turns on when the xFi Pod is first plugged in, please contact us to troubleshoot.
How do I use xFi?
To access the xFi app on X1, press the xfinity button on your remote control, and then select the Apps icon. Next, scroll down to the XFINITY row and select the XFINITY xFi app (if you have X1 Parental Controls enabled for this app, you will be prompted to enter your PIN).
