Support XFINITY Internet Set Up File and Print Sharing


Print and file sharing is easy with Comcast home networking.

If you have multiple computers in your home, you can configure a network to share files and printers. Follow these steps below to get set up.

Please note: These instructions are specific to the following routers:

  • Netgear CG814v 1&2
  • Linksys WCG200v 1&2
  • Linksys BEFCMUH4

Get set up

  1. Double-click the Comcast Home Networking icon on your desktop.
  2. Select Connect and Share Resources.
    • If this is the first time you have used “Connect and Share” on a computer, an automated configuration check will check connectivity and make sure you’re configured properly to share files and printers.
  3. Select Continue if all areas pass (indicated by a check mark).
    • If your computer doesn’t pass the system requirements check, you’ll receive recommendations on how your configuration will need to change. Please make these configuration changes then follow steps 1-3.
  4. Choose a name for your workgroup. All computers that want to share files/printers will need to share the same workgroup name. (Your workgroup name is a 12 character alphanumeric phrase — this is not case-sensitive.)
  5. Select a name for your computer. This will help people in your house identify you on the network. (Your user identifier is a 12 character alphanumeric phrase — this is not case-sensitive.)
  6. Reboot your computer. When it restarts the Connect and Share interface will open.
