If you don’t remember the network name and also the password and also cannot get into the admin tool, then you can always reset your gateway to the factory default setting. You should only do this as the lender of the last resort.


Default Setting – 

The steps to follow are – firstly, unplug your gateways power. Then, press and hold the ‘reset’ button. Continue pressing the button and plug the gateway back in. Then, continue holding the button for another 30 seconds. After that, all that you have to do is wait for your gateway to reboot. Then, do the login with the password which is there on the gateway’s label. After this process, you can change your name and password. Remember to set a name and password which is easy for you to remember. Also, you should note that any devices connected to the Wi-Fi i.e. the laptop; phone, tablet, etc. will be disconnected. After you are done you can reconnect your Wi-Fi and enter a new network name and also the password.


Security Mode – 

If you have your own modem, you can go to the producer’s website and get more detailed information on the same. Now, let’s look at the wireless gateways default security mode. The default security model for the wireless gateway is WPA or WPA 2. It is such an advanced mode of wireless security which is extremely difficult to pass. You should also note that WPA security doesn’t connect with some of the older OS i.e. operating systems. You can also check your security model in the routers user manual if you are not using a wireless gateway.


Conclusion – 

Now, for an advanced wireless gateway setting, you should do the following. You should learn to adjust your firewall or set parental control. Plus, you can configure open ports on your wireless gateway, which is also very helpful if you are looking forward to adding a game console to your home network. Also, you should know about port forwarding and port triggering. You should keep in mind that if you do port forwarding then it may affect your overall performance of the network. And if you leave the port open it will expose your network to unwanted internet traffic.

Port triggering is a more secure option that you have; it is because the inbound port is open when you turn on a session on that port. After the session is turned off the port is closed to the random inbound traffic and also your Wi-Fi network is closed to any potential hacker. Now that you know about the various ways in which you can do the Xfinity Login, hopefully, you will try this and also it will help you regarding your network name and password which you want to change.
