Yes, unfortunately, it is all too easy for anyone to log into most Comcast gateways / routers. The good news is that it’s also easy for you to fix it. 1. Open a new browser window. 2. In the Address Bar up top, type this and hit enter: 10.0.0.1 3. In a moment, you will see the place to type in a user name and password. USER: admin PASSWORD: password Hit Enter. You should now be offered a chance to change the password so yes, change it to a complicated one that you write down and tape onto your Comcast box. NEXT: You can just logout and go have a beer now OR you can continue navigating through the options to, say, WIFI, where you can do things like change your WiFi password and/or the name of your WiFi network to something you like better. Most Comcast WiFi networks are named something like “HOME” and a few numbers. But you can have a little creative fun here and change it to anything else. Some guy in my neighborhood named his WiFi “FBI van”. Haha! Although not so sure that the actual FBI would find that funny. By the way, be smart and power cycle your Comcast box after changing the password. They say that this helps update the firmware to protect it from Russian hackers.
