I was just upsold by the Xfinity tech support (sales) guy from my Extreme Pro (1 Gb) internet to their 1.2Gb Gigabit speed - “Just $2/month more” - and was told I needed to replace my existing modem to take “full advantage” of the Xfinity system.I have been running an Arris SB8200 for about 2 years and was generally satisfied. I just added a third ASUS router so now have a primary and 2 secondary nodes in an AImesh. I get about 950 KBps on ethernet and 400+ on wifi. I tried to replace the SB8200 with the S33 yesterday - it did not go well!!Firstly, Xfinity took an age ( 2hours) to finally get the S33 set up. Then, once installed, the ethernet and wifi speeds were unchanged.According to Xfinity, the S33 does not does not interact correctly with Xfinity Gigabit internet, despite Arris claiming it does. In fact Xfinity indicated that I would need to rent their high speed modem/router combo and hard wire to clients in order to get the higher speed, something that does not work for me as I
My S33 needs to be rebooted or shuts down often. I continue to get this group of errors often. Something tells me it is Xfinity. I have 1gbps service but can recieve up to 1200 per xfinity, however i have never seen more than 650mbps. They tell me its my modem, but they will not allow me to connect to the 2.5GB port.

This is my second S33, the first one died after about 8 months of use. I have my household running off this modem with a set of (3) Arris AX 11000 routers. It seems every time I sit down at the computer which is actually plugged into the router the S33 will reset. This will happen frequently but ONLY when the computer is on and connected to the router. Today it has reset twice. I can shut down the computer and go weeks, even months without a problem. Then turn on the computer and within an hour or so the S33 will reset.
