    You're going to need to get a new router.

    One fix that will almost certainly work, if you can disable wifi on the Xfinity box is to replace just the wifi part with a Netgear WNR2000. (It's the cheapest router I've been able to find that works flawlessly with Android, up to Lollipop - about $40.) Check at PortForward Forum for instructions (they'll work with you step by step if necessary) to get the two boxes working together. (It's not an extender, you're replacing the entire wifi section of the Xfinity box, which is where the problem is.)

    If you had a separate modem and router from Xfinity, you could just disconnect their router and substitute the Netgear.

    It seems that my issue fixed itself. Maybe xfinity did an update. It's working now and I hope it continues *fingers crossed *. Thanks again for the help and suggestions.
