Every client who subscribes to Xfinity’s internet service is eligible to pay an additional cost to receive a router. If the router that you have purchased from Xfinity is not functioning properly, there may be anything that you can do to fix it.
How to view the settings of your Xfinity router
- Logging in to your router is required if all you want to do is change a few parameters, such as the Xfinity WiFi password or the name of the Xfinity network.
- Open a browser window on a device that is connected to the network that the router provides. Tablets, personal computers, or mobile phones are all acceptable options.
- After entering the IP address of the router, press the enter button. The IP address used by Xfinity by default is 10.0.0.1.
- Please enter the username and password for your router.
- You can use the online interface to access the settings that you wish.
- There is malicious software or a virus on the Xfinity router.
If you believe that your Xfinity router is infected with malware or a virus, you should immediately disconnect all devices that are connected to the network and then contact Xfinity for assistance from their technical support team. It is very possible that the support personnel would suggest that you reset the router to factory settings.

- Unplug the router from the power outlet, wait about a quarter of a minute, and then plug the router back into the wall outlet. Check to see if the internet connection is working.
- If you are able to connect to the internet using another device, such as a mobile phone, you should check the Xfinity website to ensure that there are no service interruptions in your region.
