That is the XB3 - see https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/broadband-gateways-userguides. It is DOCSIS 3.0 and you should definitely replace it. I will ping you 1:1.

    How would I know which one I have? I can't find a model number on it and
    the web page "Gateway > Hardware > System Hardware" only shows the base
    model number of TG1682G, no suffix. Hardware Revision is 11.0.

    I'd also consider buying my own, which might address my DHCP issue if the
    downloaded firmware doesn't take that away from me.
