Orbi CBK40 with comast Xfi wireless cable boxes

I recently received a Orbi CBK40 and I have two Xfi wireless cable boxes throught comcast which they tell me will only work with their wireless gateway no customer owned modem/router combos. Ive searched different forumns and I see some people who say they have gotten it working only by hard wiring the X-fi boxes. Does anyone have a diffinitive way to get these boxes working with an orbi CBK40 ? Thanks

Do the Xfi boxes have a LAN port? 

I have a similar DISH Joey connected to my system via there LAN port. Though they are not wifi supporting, the LAN port in back makes it so they can connect to the main DISH Hopper via LAN cable in a different area of the home. 

 

Try this. 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80>XR450 v2.3.2.106(Router Mode)>RBK853 v3.2.11.2(AP Mode)
