Accessing the IP Gateway configuration

To access the IP configuration pages of the IP Gateway of your Comcast router, enter your current LAN IP, if you changed the settings, into the address bar of your browser. If not, you can use the default IP, i.e., 10.1.10.1. Make sure your device is connected to the internet through the Gateway.

You will now see the login page. Enter your username and password to access the configuration panel of your Comcast modem.

IP setup

The Gateway on Comcast is configured to use private IP addresses by default. These act as a DHCP server. If you have logged in to your router panel, you can change the Gateway’s default LAN IP using the following method:

  1. Open your browser, and enter your LAN IP address. The default LAN IP address of the Gateway is 10.1.10.1.
  2. Enter LAN Subnet Mask. The default LAN subnet mask for 255 IP addresses is 255.255.255.0. When your LAN IP address is 10.1.10.1, the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. Devices connected to the Gateway LAN can use any IP address between 10.1.10.0 to 10.1.10.255.
  3. Enter the Domain Suffix. Your default domain name will be wp.comcast.net.
  4. Enable LAN DHCP. This setting is checked by default, but in case if it is not checked, follow the steps below:
    1. Select Lease Time for IP addresses assigned to you by the LAN DHCP server. The default lease time is set at 1 Week.
    2. Enter DHCP Start IP. The default starts IP address is 10.1.10.10.
    3. Enter DHCP End IP. The default End IP address is 10.1.10.199.
  5. Assign DNS Manually. This option is unchecked by default. If it is unchecked, the Gateway will assign you the default DNS server that you are currently using on your Comcast network. If the option is checked, you can manually define the DNS servers:
    1. Enter the Primary DNS server assigned to LAN devices.
    2. Enter the Secondary DNS server assigned to LAN devices.
  6. Select Apply.

How to Login to your Comcast Router

Follow these steps below to login to your Comcast modem/ router:

  1. Connect an Ethernet cable from the Comcast router to your PC. Or if it’s a wireless connection, make sure your device is connected to the router.
  2. Open your browser and type 192.168.100.1 in the address bar. If you can’t open the login page, open the Command Prompt window and type ipconfig, press Enter, and copy your default gateway.
  3. Type your username and password onto the login page. By default, the username is set as ‘admin,’ and the common password is ‘password’. If you cannot log in, you can get the details from your Comcast device’s user manual.

You can follow the steps mentioned above to log in to your Comcast router panel and change settings and view diagnostic information and logs. This way, you can maximize the performance of your connection.

Static Routing Setup

Routing is a mechanism through which a Comcast router or a modem memorizes where traffic should go when received. For the internet traffic to reach a device on a subnet using Comcast Gateway, there must be a clear path defined. In some cases (not common), the route needs to be set up manually. However, most of the time, it is automatically set.

You can use the Static Routing Setup on Gateway to update the Comcast Gateway routing table. You can add a maximum of eight static routes, and to do that, you must know the destination IP address, subnet mask of the destination IP address, and LAN IP address assigned to the router by Comcast gateway.

Follow these steps to set up static routing on Comcast:

  1. Enter a Name for the router.
  2. Enter the Destination IP address.
  3. Enter the Subnet Mask of the destination IP address.
  4. Enter your local LAN Gateway IP address.
  5. Select Add. The new static route will be added to the Comcast routing table.
  6. If you want to add additional routes, repeat steps 1 through 5.
  7. Select Apply to activate the static routes.

If you want to remove the static routing that you have set up. Select Remove and the entire route will be deleted.
