What is 10.1.10.1
10.1.10.1 is a private IPv4 address and you don’t need a specific permission to use it in your network. However, there is one thing to worry about:
Only one device in the network can use 10.1.10.1. Otherwise, in case there are two devices using the same IP a so called IP conflict will occur. This can have bad impact on your network or even make it unusable.
If you are reading this article then 10.1.10.1 is probably used by your router as its default IP. Let’s see how you can use this IP properly.
10.1.10.1 – How to use it?
The default router IP is used to allow the user access the router settings. From there the user can manage the router settings and enable, disable or tweak the numerous features the router has to offer, like:
- Change the router IP
- Change the router password
- Change the wireless network name (SSID)
- Set up or change the wireless password
- Set up Guest network
- Set up Parental controls on your home network
However, in order to any of these actions you need to know the 10.1.10.1 login steps.
How to login to your router using 10.1.10.1?
STEP 1 – Connect to your network
You can access the router settings only if you use a device already connected to your network. That’s why you have to connect to your network first either using a wireless connection (in case you are using your laptop, tablet or smartphone) or a wired connection (in case you are using your PC or laptop).
STEP 2 – Go to 10.1.10.1 using your browser
You have to use your browser to access the router admin page. That’s why you need to type the 10.1.10.1 admin login IP in the Address bar or click the http://10.1.10.1
STEP 3 – Enter the Comcast Business router login details
In this step you will be required to type the Comcast Business router login username and password. If you haven’t changed these details already, use the default ones. If you have changed them, use the new ones instead.
You can find these login details in the user’s manual or on the router. However, the default login details are:
