I cannot remember my username and password to login on my router... i need to change my wifi password.. i called comcast n they want $50 to help me...what can i do?! please help
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you reset the router using the reset button the password will go back to the original default password which is usualy:
User name: admin
This is what my router's defaults are. Hope this helps.
FWIW, if you do use the reset button, depress and hold it in for at least 20-30 seconds then release for a FULL reset back to factory defaults.
Don't remember getting a router password when Comcast hooked up modem and router. How can I find out the password for the router so I can activate my Kindle Paperwhite?
Your modem router password (gateway) is different then your wifi password, however when you login to the device you'll find it.
A) Do you have a computer that's already connected to the gateway's wifi?
-If you do type in 10.0.0.1 and admin/password is the defaults
If you are just trying to connect a Kindle to the wifi and don't know the wifi password, and don't have a computer, the WPA2 passphrase is on the bottom
-With my wonderful gateway my wifi password on the bottom only showed 11 of the 16 characters of my wifi password (before I changed it)
If A works:
Go to that 10.0.0.1 (that's in the address bar of a webpage)
enter admin & password
Then click on Wifi and that should show you the wifi name & password.
-If you click "Edit" it'll actually allow you to change the wifi password to something easier.
That being said: I've been having problems logging into mine today, and i"m wondering if Comcast has done something with a firmware update.
