Im a new business customer and own my own equipment.. I am using a sb6141 modem and a Netgear r6400 modem . I want to offer xfinty wifi at my business. Is this possibe with this equipment? Thanks, Ken
No. The only devices capable of Comcast's "xfinitywifi" scheme are the rented wireless gateways (Cisco DPC3939B or DPC3941B).
However, your R6400 does have a "guest network" feature that you can enable. This will allow you to offer free WiFi, with the added benefit of NOT having to be a Comcast customer to use it. (The "xfinitywifi" offers free wifi IF you are a Comcast subscriber; if not, then it is free for 30 minutes at a time, with payment required after that.)
Thanks for quick reply... You answer is what I was expecting.. I have the guest wifi enabled on the r6400 now but it doesnt have a good way of limiting bandwidth & was thinking the xfinity wifi may be a better way to go..Thanks again, wildherre
Yeah, you may need a more advanced router to be able to limit guest bandwidth. I believe the ASUS RT-xxxx line can do this (if the stock firmware can't, then certainly DD-WRT or Tomato aftermarket firmwares could. Your Netgear might even be compatible with those firmwares too)
