xfinity router admin access

I seem to have lost the admin password to access my router. how can I reset it? thanks



Re: xfinity router admin access

Hi @rcd_01,

Hold the little button on the back of your device in the pinhole for 15 seconds or so. Typically people use a paperclip for this task. This will factory reset the device. Once you've done that:


Open a web browser and go to the Admin Tool ( - this is the wireless gateway's administration site. The default settings are:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: password (case-sensitive)

Press and hold the recessed reset button on the back of the device using a pentip or whatever for say 30 secs. that will cause a factory reset and you will lose any settings. The log in will be admin/password.
