Use Router to Connect Additional Computers

Do you know you can connect multiple computers to your XFINITY Internet IP address wirelessly through your router? It’s easy.

How do I Set up Additional Computers (Wireless Clients) in my Network?

Chances are, there’s more than one computer or laptop in your household. With your wireless home network, it’s easy to connect all of them to the Internet and each other. We’ll show you how.

While steps for individual computers and routers will differ, here is a general set of instructions that can get you started.

  1. Open the wireless software that manages your Internet or network connections. This can often be found in your System Preferences or Control Panel. The wireless software will scan for all available networks in your area.
  2. Look for your network – the one you created and named – and select it.
  3. If you password-protected your network, enter your password or network key when prompted.
  4. Click Connect. Your computer should now be connected.

How to Help Your Guests Get On WiFi at Your Home

You can give your guests WiFi access in two easy ways:

Share your private in-home WiFi network name and password.

Utilize your XFINITY WiFi Home Hotspot.

Share Your WiFi Information

When your family wants to access the Internet via WiFi, the XFINITY My Account app allows you to share your WiFi network name and password via text message. Click to download for Apple devices or to download for Android devices.

If you already have the app installed on your mobile device, open it and sign in with your XFINITY username and password. Then, simply navigate to the Internet screen, tap Show WiFi settings and select Share.

For step-by-step instructions on how to connect different kinds of devices to your home network, check out Connect Your Devices to Your In-Home WiFi Network.

Connect to XFINITY WiFi

Guests can connect to the Internet using the XFINITY WiFi hotspot network that broadcasts from most XFINITY wireless gateways. By setting up your guests with this access, you won’t need to share your private WiFi network name and password. To verify that you have the XFINITY WiFi Home Hotspot feature enabled on your wireless gateway, visit My Account.

To connect to the XFINITY WiFi hotspot network, your guests can simply select the WiFi network labeled xfinitywifi on their devices and open a web browser to get started. If additional help is required, check out these connection guides.
