The 10.0.0.1 login IP is one of the several wireless router default IP addresses used today. Probably the most popular wireless router using this IP is the Comcast Xfinity router.
If you are one of the Comcast’s valuable customers it is always good to know the default IP just in case you want to do some networking tasks on your own. Disabling and enabling wireless internet, modifying your network name, securing your wireless network are just some of the things you can do once you log in to the router’s Admin Tool.
Now when you know what you can do, let’s see how to log in to your Comcast Xfinity router.
The 10.0.0.1 Login Steps
First of all we have to make some things clear for the 10.0.0.1 login process to succeed.
- You have to be connected to your network, otherwise it won’t work. It doesn’t matter whether it is a wired or wireless connection, but in case it is a wireless connection you will be logged out when you change the wireless password and click “Save”. Making other changes and saving them may have the same result so it is good to know what’s happening.
- Make sure to type 10.0.0.1 and not 1o.o.o.1 (type the number ZERO instead of the letter O)
Start up your browser and in the address bar type 10.0.0.1 or http://10.0.0.1
Adding http:// in front of the IP address is not necessary because your browser automatically adds it.
If the 10.0.0.1 login IP is the correct one, the Admin Tool Login window will appear.
The Comcast Xfinity router uses the following default login details:
CAUTION: Both the username and password are case sensitive.
Now you should be logged in to the Admin Tool. In case these login details don’t work you will have to reset your router to factory settings.
As you can see, the 10.0.0.1 login process is quite simple and easy. Now when you have gained access to the router’s Admin Tool you can make the following changes.
- Change the router password
- Change the wireless password and network name (SSID)
- Set up Parental controls
- Secure your network
- Port forwarding
All the things you can do with your router will be described in details in some other articles. For now, if you have logged in to your router’s Admin Tool successfully, it would be best to write the following:
Make sure to have these written somewhere, just in case you need them.
