    Any new news about this ??
    Our Pastor was thinking a power reboot wouldn't refresh the firmware and the reset button had to be used ... (in all 5 routers )
    He called Comcast yesterday and they knew nothing about it.

    Comcast said they'd call back .... We're not holding our breath or in the mood to buy a bridge.

    I don't understand any of this .... But it sounds like a power reboot is NOT a fix
