    Pro Tip
    : This username and password isn’t the same as your WiFi network username and password. If you haven’t changed it earlier, the default is:
    Username: admin
    Password: password (If the login credentials didn’t worked, check our list of default router passwords)

Unable to access

If you are having issues to access then it may be that:

  • The default gateway address of your router or device is other than due to which the browser is not able to locate the Admin Panel at Find the correct gateway address and try again.
  • You are not typing the correct IP address in the URL bar of the browser. Sometimes, users may type www., add https:// at beginning, mistake “0” (zero) for “O” or which is an invalid address as a gateway IP address contain four decimal numbers which is represented in dot-decimal notation and here it is of five values due to which you are having trouble to access the Admin Panel.
  • Performing a restart of your WiFi network and router is the most common way of fixing. Wait at-least few minutes before reconnecting to your network.
  • Ensure you are able to browse other websites, in case of network outages from your ISP during peak hours you may encounter such issue.
  • Your browser stores cache and cookies locally in your device, try removing them.
  • In case some misconfiguration occurred in your previous session, you may perform reset your gateway to its factory default settings. To reset your router configuration to its default settings unplug your router power and press the small “reset” button at the back of it for about 10 seconds. Once the lights at the front of router starts blinking it means the modem has successfully reset.

Note: Factory reset should be your last option if all previous methods didn’t worked as this is not same as “restart” because this will revert all your manual settings such as your SSID (network name), password, guest networks, MAC filtration.

During this process any device connected to the WiFi (laptop, mobile, TV) will get disconnected. If you are using Xfinity Voice you will be not able to make or receive any calls including emergency calls until the gateway is back online.

Advanced Wireless Gateway Settings
