Xfinity needs the best router/modem combos to power their internet services and 4K stream boxes, but sometimes users can run into issues, just like any other piece of software/hardware.
Xfinity Wireless Gateway support the following features on their current devices:
Xfinity Wireless Gateways allow users to manage their wireless gateways via a companion app, online, via IP Address or physically on the gateway itself. Here’s how to restart the router using all methods:
Make sure to have your username and password to hand before starting this process. Unsure of your details? See the Xfinity website for help.
This will be on the bottom of the app for iOS users. On Android? No problem, tap the top-left menu icon then tap ‘Internet’.
Then select the ‘Restart Device’ option in the settings menu. Tap ‘Restart Device once again to confirm. Then stick the kettle on, sit back and relax for 5-10 minutes.
Wait ten seconds before plugging back in, then wait 5-10 minutes for the restart process to finish.
Once you’ve logged into your Xfinity account, scroll down and select ‘Manage Internet’.
Then click ‘Start Troubleshooting’ to begin the wireless gateway restart, which can again take up to ten minutes. That’s just the right amount of time to make a perfect cup of tea.
Type ‘http://10.0.0.1’ to navigate to the admin tool and sign in. Your username and password is the same as your default Wi-Fi username and password. The defaults are Admin and Password respectively (Always set custom login details for security)
From here you have five options (Please note, a factory reset resets all settings and data to default settings):
