I’m Chris Davis from Comcast and today we’re going to learn how to connect Xfinity internet with your new self installation kit. Once you open the box, you will find our easy-to-follow setup instructions. Your kit will include the wireless gateway, two coax cables, a power cord, an Ethernet cable, a coax cable splitter and some cable Tech’s to secure the coax cable to a baseboard if needed.
If you have an open out late, use one of the coax cables and screw it into the outlet. Remember, righty-tighty, lefty-loosey and make sure all your connections are finger tight, screw the other end of this cable into the cable in connection on the back of the Gateway.
If you have a cable box connected, you will need to disconnect the box from the outlet for just a moment. Once it’s disconnected, connect the small cable to the open coax outlet on the wall. Then the other end into the head or input connection of the splitter. Now take the cable that came from the cable box that you removed from the wall and connect it to one of the feet or outputs of the splitter.
The other open foot we can use to connect our final piece of coax cable into the gateway. Now that we have the Gateway connected to the wall. It needs to be hooked up to the computer, connect the Ethernet cable to the back of the wireless gateway here, then connect the other end into the computer itself.
Next, plug the power cable into the back of the Gateway, the other end into an electrical outlet. If your gateway has a power button, you may need to press it to turn on the Gateway. Before proceeding, wait for the online connection light on the front of your Gateway to stop flashing and remain solid. This process may take up to 20 minutes.
Once the light is solid, you can start the activation process. In order to do so, open your computer’s web browser, you should automatically connect to the Xfinity activation web page and follow those instructions. By the time you’re done, you should be online. This wireless gateway also allows you to connect wirelessly to the internet, using a smart phone tablet or gaming system.
