I randomly lose access to Xfinity for all MAC filtered devices on both frequencies. Working with Xfinity via their app and chat is truly frustrating. A power off/ reboot does not resolve the issue of the gateway connecting. I end up having to connect my PC to the G34 and set both 2.4 and 5.0 to “Allow All” and save both configurations which negates the use of the manufacturer’s MAC address, All devices will then connect to Xfinity internet. I then change both 2.4 and 5.0 to “Allow” and my devices are then able to connect once again to the internet.
This lose of connection appears to be random as to when it will occur. The fix always appears to be going to “Allow All’ and then back to “Allow” for MAC filtering.
Anyone have any ideas as to why this is occurring, and why making the change back and forth for filtering resolves the issue?
