    Did you know about this? Your modem may be broadcasting a independent wifi signal for others to use. Comcast claims it's independent of your own wifi home network but... Who wants to take the chance...

    I checked on mine and it was broadcasting a xfinitywifi ssid. I was able to connect to it with ease but didn't go any further. I logged onto my account and went through the steps to disable it and it's now disabled.

    So, those cheeky bastards!!!!

    I do, but that would never work for my setup since I don't rent a modem from them. I have my own Motorola Surfboard that doesn't share.

    ^^^x2! All you have to do is google comcast wifi security and read the maelstrom of shit that people have dealt with...

    I purchased:
    http://www.amazon.com/ARRIS-Motorol...IS+3.0+Cable+Modem+-+Retail+Packaging+-+White

    Purchasing the white casing seems to be better than the black. I read a few online reviews where people received black units that were billed as new but what they received were remanufactured units...
