Home WiFi preparation
and setup
Step 1 Access your modem’s web interface
Type 192.168.0.1 into your browser window’s address bar.
You will be presented with a log in page.
Before connecting your modem, take a moment to
determine which pages of this instruction guide are
relevant to your needs. If you are not a TWC Home WiFi
subscriber, you will skip “Home WiFi setup” and begin on
page 4 at “Connect modem or wireless modem”. If you
are a TWC Home WiFi subscriber, you will need to begin
with the “Home WiFI preparation and setup” that follows.
Record your current Home WiFi Network Wireless Settings.
As a TWC Home WiFi subscriber, you may want to use the
same Network Name and Password settings for your new
modem. Although this process attempts to transfer your
existing settings automatically, please take a moment
to record them for your reference before beginning.
Refer to steps 1 through 3 to identify your existing
network name and password. After you have identified
your network name and password, please proceed to
page 4 to begin.
Step 2 Log in to the web interface
You will be prompted to enter a User Name and Password to
log in to the web interface.
Enter the User Name and Password you set up, or refer to
the chart that follows for your existing modem’s default User
Name and Password.

Note: The auto provisioning process attempts to transfer your existing wireless
settings automatically. In the event you are unable to access your wireless
settings following activation, attempt access using the default credentials in
the table above or reset the modem to its factory default settings.
To reset your modem to its factory default settings, locate the small pinhole
button on the back of the device. Using the end of a paper clip or something
similar in size and shape, press and hold for 10-15 seconds. Use the default user
name and password provided for your modem type in the list above to access
your computer’s wireless settings. All wireless devices will need to be updated
with any changes made to your network name or password in order to connect.
