Just ordered Xfinity internet service, and requested a self-install. I'm wondering what the activation CD actually does, and if I actually needed to wait several days to get the CD. Does it do a modem provision?
I'm running Mac OS X. As far as I can tell, it didn't install anything (it's not like I had to install anything on my iPad or Android devices to get them working).
It's easy to be skeptical and think that it's just a waste of time to wait for the CD, so instead I'm curious if anyone knows what steps the CD actually does after you enter your information, to get the service running.
I'm not looking for general descriptions, I'm looking for specifics (e.g. "it changes settings "x, y, z", then does this other thing, and finally, your service is activated).
