The default router IP address for the Xfinity router or any other router is in general 192.168.1.1, 192.168.100.1 or 10.1.10.1. But it those options don’t work, you can check the box in which your router came in, or check the router itself.

If you are unable to find the IP address, open the manual and search for the information in the relevant section. Another option is to follow the below steps:

Default Login for Comcast routers
The majority of routers have default login credentials. The most commonly used username and password combination used is admin (username) and the password would be simple “password”. Other options used are root and root, cusadmin and highspeed. If those don’t work and you can’t find the information on the box or the router, then you need to take a look at the manual.
How to log in to or reset your Comcast Xfinity Router
You may have the login details, but it should be noted that in some cases, the routers have been used by other customers before you. This means that it is possible that the default credentials have been changed. In that case, you may need a router reset to be able to log into the router using the default gateway and login details.
Resetting the Comcast Xfinity router
1. First you need to get a paper clip and bend it or use anything that has a small, pointy tip. Press it into the recessed reset button that is located in your router for about 30 to 40 seconds.
2. Allow some time until the lights blink off and then turn back on the device. Then release.
You can now try the login steps again. It is also possible to try the 30 30 30 hard reset.
If it doesn’t work, then your best option is to get in touch with the customer support team. They will be able to help you to log in to the router.
