How to Bypass Xfinity Wifi Pause?
WiFi pause also allows users to set a timer ahead of time for tasks such as getting ready for bed or maintaining distraction-free study time.
Build The Connection
Before you start circumventing your Xfinity device’s WiFi pause, make sure you have a wire to connect your phone to the computer.
It should be noted that the device must run on Android. You’ll need to utilize an alternative approach to avoid using an Apple device.
Look Up Your MAC Address
- Checking your MAC address is one thing you should do.
- The MAC address identifies the “nametag” that connects to the internet, and it is blocked after a few minutes.
- This action can only be used to block specific MAC addresses (i.e., the one that you have been using)
Mask You MAC Address
- You can get past this by spoofing your MAC address and making it appear to be a different device.
- After that, your device should be able to connect without issue.
Install Technitium Mac Address Changer
You’ll need to install the Technitium Mac Address Changer along the route.
After you’ve finished the installation, you’ll be asked some connectivity questions about your manner of connection.
It provides you with the following two choices.
- Option one is to use WiFi.
- Select WiFi if your stalled WiFi device supports it.
- Then go to Mac Addresses at Random. Wait for two minutes after that.
- Depending on your internet speed, the result should appear immediately.
- Normally, it would take no more than five seconds.
- Ethernet is the second option.
- Except for the lookout for the WiFi option, the instructions would be the same for Ethernet.

Troubleshoot Internet and Network Issues
