Locate Comcast Account Number
Find your Comcast account number and phone number associated with your account. This is located on your bill. You may need this information.
Unplug and Remove Old Equipment and Hook Up New Modem
Disconnect any old equipment. Connect a new modem or gateway to the coax, wall outlet, and PC only. If you have a router leave it out of the configuration for now. After the modem itself is activated, the router can be connected. Coax connections should be finger-tight to avoid signal loss.
Get The Green Light
Wait up to 10 minutes for the online light to be green on the modem.
To Activate XFINITY Modems, Enter XFINITY Set-Up Page
Open a web browser from a computer. To activate XFINITY modems, go to the Comcast web page www.xfinity.com/activate only if it does not automatically open.
Follow Screen Prompts To Activate XFINITY Modems
Follow the onscreen prompts to begin activation. You will need your account info if you have not yet set up
a username & password.
Modem May Now Reboot
The rest of the installation is pretty straightforward, following the on-screen instructions. After the modem has been set up, it may reboot. Once this occurs and the modem is back up and running, you can then connect a router. If you require further assistance, you can contact XFINITY support. Additionally, if you purchased your new modem from Amazon, it may have come with 90-days of free tech support. View your ordered items and select contact support if available. You may also call the manufacturer of the modem for support as well.
After Activating Your New Comcast Modem, Return Old Equipment
Sign in to your XFINITY account and select the Equipment Return page. Here, you can initiate the return process. Alternatively, you can simply just go to any UPS Store, XFINITY Customer Center, or XFINITY store. Make sure the serial numbers on your equipment match that in your Comcast account. Another option – if you kept the return label from when you received your self-install kit, you can use that to return your equipment. Either way, you can track your return status online here.
