The 10.1.10.1 login IP address is important as it allows you to login to your Comcast Business router in order to set it up and manage it. Whether you want to secure your router, set up a wireless network, troubleshoot your business internet connection or set up a Guest network you need this IP. The Comcast business router login steps described in this article can be applied to a Cisco Business Wireless gateway.
What is 10.1.10.1?
10.1.10.1 is a private IPv4 address and you don’t need a specific permission to use it in your private network. However, there is one thing to worry about:
Only one device in the network can use 10.1.10.1. Otherwise, in case there are two devices using the same IP a so called IP conflict will occur. This can have bad impact on your network or even make it unusable.
If you are reading this article then 10.1.10.1 is probably used by your router as its default gateway. Let’s see how you can use this IP properly.
10.1.10.1 – How to use it?
The default router IP is used to allow the user access the router settings just like other default IP addresses, for example 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. From there the user can manage the router settings and enable, disable or tweak the numerous features the router has to offer, like:
- Change the router IP
- Change the router password
- Change the wireless network name (SSID)
- Set up or change the wireless password
- Set up Guest network
- Set up Parental controls on your home network
However, in order to any of these actions you need to know the 10.1.10.1 login steps.
How to login to your router using 10.1.10.1?
STEP 1 – Connect to your network
You can access the router settings only if you use a device already connected to your network. That’s why you have to connect to your business internet network first either using a wireless connection (in case you are using your laptop, tablet or smartphone) or a wired connection (in case you are using your PC or laptop).
STEP 2 – Go to 10.1.10.1 using your browser to open the login page
You have to use your browser to access the Comcast Business router login page. That’s why you need to type the 10.1.10.1 default login IP in the Address bar or click the http://10.1.10.1
STEP 3 – Enter the Comcast Business router login details
In this step you will be required to type the Comcast Business router login username and password. If you haven’t changed these details already, use the default ones. If you have changed them, use the new password instead.
You can find these login details in the user’s manual or on the router. However, the default login details are:
Default username cusadmin
Default password highspeed or CantTouchThis
If the default username and password of your wireless gateway are correct you will be redirected to the router settings page.
Now you can go through the menus and make the necessary changes.
However, in case you have changed the Comcast Business login details, you will have to reset the router to factory settings.
