What is the Admin Tool used for?
If you have a wireless gateway, you can customize your wireless gateway settings to fit how you use the Internet and your network. Changes you make while using the Admin Tool can only be made when you are on a device that is connected to your wireless gateway.
How can I access the Admin Tool?
From a computer or device connected to the wireless gateway, open an Internet browser and access the Admin Tool at http://10.0.0.1. You can customize settings including:
- Your WiFi network name (sometimes called an SSID)
- Your WiFi password (sometimes called a network key)
- Your network settings, including your firewall and open/closed ports
- Parental Controls
- Default username (case sensitive): admin
- Default password (case sensitive): password
If you have an xFi Gateway, you can access most of your settings and preferences created in the Admin Tool from anywhere with the xFi web portal and mobile app. You do not need to be on a device that is connected to your Wireless Gateway. Once you log in to xFi and adjust your settings and preferences, you’ll be unable to manage certain settings from the Admin Tool. xFi will be your go-to destination for managing your home network settings going forward.
