Call blocking and screening needed Jul 9, TigerWizards It is needed that call blocking for scam and unwanted calls be easier than a limited number of blocks that you have to go online to the website to enter the number you want to block. This is so time consuming and error prone. Getting pen and paper, writing the number call and hunting through the Xfinity site to find where the blocked number is to be entered. I suggest the Developer take a look at apps like Mr Number that shares several types of unwanted and scam call directories, notes from users about the nature of the calls and easy grab, copy a number you want to block and open the Mr Number app to allow blocking and to see info on known history of the number and call notes. A connection to a telephone data base, wider than Xfinity’s and or one mobile service expands uses access to names and or location info associates with a number. Make blocking really work. These calls are not just irritating but potentially dangerous. Needs improvement Dec 20, Jaf This app is getting worse instead of better.
Setting up your cable modem to connect to the Internet
A digital adapter is necessary for viewing Comcast’s digital content on an analog television. While you can schedule an installation with a Comcast technician, it’s a simple job that you can do yourself. Once you have the equipment, you can hook up the digital adapter in about 10 minutes. Connect the Digital Adapter to the Cable Outlet Begin by finding a place for the Comcast digital adapter near both the television and the cable outlet in the wall.
Keep in mind that the closer the digital adapter is to the cable outlet, the stronger the signal is. If the cable wire from the wall is connected to the television, disconnect it.
Occasionally we’ll get an e-mail from someone that reads something like this:
Slick new features let you stream live TV and recorded video to a computer, tablet, or phone. For a few weeks, I used the set-top box and remote which the company then offered. They provided such a miserable, user-hostile interface for the vast quantities of programming I was paying for that I was tempted to chuck them out the window. Judging from a demo which the company recently gave me, X1 is slick and approachable, with lots of ways to find stuff worth watching beyond scrolling through an interminable grid of numbered channels.
Better still, the X1 box is a gateway to features which live largely in the cloud, so Comcast can add new features on the fly without updating or replacing the box. Even the remote looks sensible. Rights issues prevent Comcast from offering full access to every channel over the Internet. It works well and is lovably familiar, and I already invested a sizable amount of money in the DVR and service.

Comcast’s XFINITY vs. DirecTV (comparison)
Here are just a few examples of the types of questions we were being asked or problems reported by users like you: How do I connect my Comcast remote? So we put together this guide to try to help. It has 9 step s to it. It takes an average of minutes to get through these steps according to other users, including time spent working through each step and contacting Comcast.
And we tried to include a checklist of information you’ll need when you try to fix this yourself.

Double billed us more than once – causing financial problems and damages; Added additional charges Caused us havoc with our bank; Lied about service; Sold us mbps and delivered 5mbps; Refused to make the service right; Lied about payment arrangements; Continue to charge us for services we do not have or use. We can’t believe they can get away with this and how hard it is to find someone who tries to help instead of make excuses. They also lied about other things that we will have to take care of in court.
Our goal now is to make sure this costs them times if not , times what it would have cost just to take care of us and be honest. Xfinifty has done nothing but make excuses, provide fake customer support channels which are nothing more than call centers in the Philippines who can’t do anything and get paid peanuts to pretend like they are trying to help. We’ve even had a tech come out and fix things 4 months after we got service just to get it to a point we could actually use it.
Our horror story is so much larger than this small post and we will be putting together a website where the public and community can go to share their stories, suggestions and resources. We will also put these links and other very important links like company emails, phone numbers and all of that hard to find information they are required to have public knowledge but don’t want you to know.

How to Setup a Fax Through a Comcast Phone
This wikiHow teaches you how to connect a Comcast cable box to your TV. Steps Preparing to Connect 1 Make sure that you have cable installed. If a Comcast representative didn’t come to your house to install cable, you’ll need to call Comcast and request the installation. If you call Comcast, be sure to have your account information and ID on-hand. Leave the TV’s power cable plugged into the wall during the setup process.
This should give you enough room to attach the cable box without bending any wires.
There is nothing special about phone wiring!
If you are considering simply plugging the Comcast dialtone into the nearest jack to the modem, STOP!! You cannot just plug the Comcast modem into any jack when you have a home alarm system, personal medical alert or personal emergency response system, or other specialized security equipment connected to the telephone wiring. In some cases, such as with most home alarms, the security device will simply not function properly the inside phone jacks will work, but the alarm system will be unable to dial out.
In such cases, you must connect the Comcast modem to the inside telephone wiring before it reaches the alarm or security equipment, in the same manner as the traditional phone line was previously connected. Occasionally we’ll get an e-mail from someone that reads something like this: So that means I don’t have to do anything else, right?
The thing to do is to take a phone off the hook and leave it off for at least one minute if you still hear dial tone, press the key on the phone to make it stop, but leave the phone off the hook while you make the following test. THEN test the alarm to see if it can “phone home.
This box has one hdmi port which says hdmi tv. Cannot hook it up to a receiver it has to be hooked up directly to the tv. Confirmed last night when I tried and called Comcast tech support. The agent told me over the phone it needs to be connected directly to the tv and even had me try multiple TVs with denon receivers and it will only work with hdmi directly plugged into the tv.
The customer care associate was pleasant when we asked questions regarding service and the pricing structure.
Almost identical to the R model, we loved the longer and thicker external antennas which proved to be an asset to the router as you can remove them or adjust them to get the best results possible. From setting up parental controls so our little ones could access certain sites, to monitoring and managing our network, the app is a good feature of the Netgear Nighthawk. Enough of the small talk. When it comes to storage performance of the 3. The range is great, with my devices being connected with good signal strength even in my back garden or in the garage, which has many obstacles between the client and the router.
The range this router delivers is amazing!
How to Replace a Comcast Modem with your Own
Quite simply, that is what VoIP can do for you. Connecting to a newer phone company’s network directly via the Internet instead of by dedicated copper wire , providing you with a device which provides phone service a dial tone. You just plug your new VoIP device into a spare port on the router connected to your Internet modem. They have switched to VoIP, or use only a cell phone. A Telephone company ‘tel co’, or just ‘telco’ has proprietary internal high speed networks like an Internet connected to ‘central offices’ CO.
A CO building example right is usually a very plain non-descript brick building in your neighborhood with no windows for security reasons.

I am on my third modem in 3 weeks, all my inside lines have been replaced. The issue must be an outside line , but getting them to do something about this is hard. I have no other internet provider choice in my area. If I ever get reliable service, I want to cut out their TV. Just found out that, if I do that, those services are considered a la carte. You guys are just dumb.
I’ve had my services for a little over a year and I love it. I pay for the extreme mbps, and I get mbps. I do online gaming, soo you could guess I was lagging throughout every game. If you don’t like Comcast, quit your whining and move on to a competetor. Hope you don’t plan on watching tv in the rain, snow, sleet, wind, or just whenever a cloud gets in the right spot. I’ll take your ability to spell as an indicator of your intelligence.

Glad to hear it! Finally this worked for me. I tried all of the above and my Roku 3 will connect to the wireless network, just not to the local internet. See if you can get it hooked up there. Knock out one variable at a time. Let us know how it goes. Has your Roku come back to life? Amanda Carden For some reason, after I had completely given up, I just left it alone for a few days. It then said my registration period had expired and I had to set it up on my computer and it was magically fixed!!!!
Only to realize my receipt vanished into thin air. See how that goes as a test. If it works elsewhere, then at least you can try to zero in troubleshooting locally.

January 1, 98 Comments Not too long ago, I highlighted 3 ways to get rid of your Comcast modem rental fee after Comcast killed my old Netgear gateway. And when you get a discount on your modem rental, it leaves you with little leverage to negotiate bigger discounts on the cost of the internet service. You can go with a basic cable modem and pair it with a wireless router.
There is a list of Comcast supported cable modems that are compatible with their network. The tech I had spoke to previously had recommended a now obsolete Motorala gateway.
I called and they said remove the program and reinstall which I have done several times and still have the same problem.
Sure, I could get rid of cable completely. Comcast has since updated their speeds and pricing, so research what the current offerings are in your area, and substitute in the script. How to Cut your Comcast Bill: I picked up the phone and called XFinity customer service number: This should get you connected to an XFinity retention specialist, who have a little more power to offer discounts than other customer service reps, or so the theory goes. I lead my negotiation with the competition.
My discussion was almost identical to this — and this Comcast script has reportedly worked well for hundreds of readers: OK, may I ask why? This is the price we offer new customers.
