How to change the IP address on a Spectrum Router?

A public IP address is an IP you see when you visit websites like What is My IP Address?. This address is how computers and servers outside your network identify you online. Public IP is assigned by your internet service provider (ISP) and you can only change it by using a VPN service.

Your local IP address, on the other hand, is the IP address assigned to your Spectrum router. You can change your local IP address through your Spectrum router dashboard.

  2. Log in with the default username and password for your Spectrum router.
  3. Click on Setup.
  4. Click Network Settings.
  5. Type your new IP address under the Router Settings.
  6. Click Save Settings.

Keep in mind that after changing the router IP address, you won’t be able to access the dashboard using the old address. So, make sure to write it down somewhere in case you decide to change your Spectrum router settings the next time.
