The decision to self-install is mostly based on how comfortable you are troubleshooting problems on your own. We believe the process is straightforward enough that most consumers could accomplish self-installation thanks to Xfinity’s helpful app and other information on its website. Even if you are extremely tech knowledgeable, some situations will necessitate professional installation.

  • If your home is older and doesn’t have a coax outlet, you’ll need to have one installed. It’s possible that this will take a long time.
  • If you haven’t had Xfinity service for more than a year, you’ll need a technician to come out and verify your cable line.
  • Professional installation may be required for installations that require more pieces of equipment than are included in a typical installation kit. When you package many services, this can happen.
  • You’ll need a professional installer to run a new cable if you wish to transfer the place where your modem is located to a different room. Alternatively, you may simply get a Wi-Fi extender.

If you decide to self-install but have problems, you may always contact Xfinity customer service online or by calling 1-800-XFINITY.

Is a modem and router required for Xfinity?

You’ll need a suitable modem and router to utilize Xfinity internet. A modem and a router may appear to be the same thing, but they are not. A modem is a device that links your home to your service provider, which in this case is Xfinity. A router connects to your modem to create a Wi-Fi network in your house via which your computers and other connected devices can access the internet. You can buy modems and routers separately or use a device that combines the two.

You have two alternatives when joining up for Xfinity service: rent a modem and router for $14 per month or buy your own. While knowing that the Xfinity-provided gadget is compatible may give you peace of mind, keep in mind that the rental will cost you around $168 per year. You can buy appropriate equipment to use with Xfinity for approximately that amount (often less) and save hundreds of dollars in rental costs over the next few years.
