Frontier Router Information
The first step you need to take to change your Wi-Fi address is to know the basic information about your router. This is very simple because all the information is usually found on the sticker on the back of the router. Basic data are the default IP address, router’s username/password, default network name (SSID) and default Wi-Fi password.

When it happens that this information is not on the back or bottom of the router, it is useful to know that the most common default username is admin, and the most common password is password. Common default IP addresses are 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.254, or 192.168.0.1.
Reset Frontier Router
When you can’t remember the router password, you can simply reset the router to restore the factory settings. Here’s how to do it:
- You need to press the Reset button, usually located on the back of the router. You can use some sharp object to press it if it’s just a pinhole – a paper clip or the tip of a pen will do the job. On some models, you will see a regular button.
- Hold the button for 10 seconds and then release it. The reset process will begin.
- During the reset process, the lights on the front panel will turn off and after a few moments, some of them will flash.
- Finally, when the internet light comes on, the reset process is complete.
After you reset the router, you can use your default username/password combo to log in to your Frontier router.

My favorite free-time activities are gaming, movie-watching, and cooking. I also enjoy fishing, although I’m not good at it. What I’m good at is annoying David when we are fishing together. Apparently, you’re not supposed to talk or laugh while fishing – it scares the fishes.
