Finding the best Frontier modem for your service doesn’t have to be hard! Frontier has tested the list of modems below to make sure they work & perform on their network. These modems have been tested for technology compatibility (ADSL, ADSL2+, VDSL2, GPON, Pair Bonding), real world maximum speed, and IPv6 compatibility.

The best way to prevent needing to return your Frontier modem is to call your provider before ordering, and ensure that you understand what features, specs and models would be appropriate for your current and future service. We always recommend getting something that meets the needs of your current plan, and leaves some room for growth. Internet providers are given money every year to upgrade their internet infrastructure, so being able to accommodate a slightly higher speed, or additional features could be highly beneficial in just a couple years!

How to change Frontier wifi password?

Changing your WiFi password takes about 5-10 minutes, depending on your WiFi router or modem router combo. You can also check out our more in-depth guide on how to change your WiFi password.

I forgot my current WiFi password:

  1. Changing the password requires you to be currently connected to your device by either Ethernet or WiFi. If you’re unable to connect via Ethernet, start by resetting your device (press and hold the reset button on the back of your device for 30 seconds, then allow 2-3 min for your device to reboot and reset before moving on to step 2).
  2. Depending on the device you’re working with, these instructions may be a little different. If you’ve gone through this and it’s still not working, try searching for your exact model in the search bar above for more detailed instructions that are specific to your modem router or WiFi router.
  3. On the bottom of your device, on one of the stickers, you’ll notice a web address, a username and a password. This information is necessary to log in and change your wireless settings. The web address may be formatted similar to this: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.100.1.
  4. Once you’ve located this address and login information, open a web browser on a computer or smartphone that’s connected to the router via WiFi or Ethernet. Please note that this will only work if you are connected to your router.
  5. On the browser page, enter your login information into the fields, as prompted.
  6. Once logged in successfully, navigate to the WiFi settings section of your control panel. This will be different for every manufacturer, but it’s generally called “wireless settings” or “WiFi settings”.
  7. Once there, you’ll be looking for the SSID which is your WiFi network name (in case you wanted to change that while you’re in here).
  8. Then, keep looking until you find the WiFi password. It may be listed as “pre-shared key”, “password” or “Security key”, depending on your device’s manufacturer. Most of the time passwords need to be at least 8 characters long, and include 1 capital letter and 1 symbol, but even if it’s not required you should probably do this anyway, just to keep your personal data safe!
  9. After you’ve changed all the info you’d like to update, make sure to hit save or apply so you don’t have to start over!
  10. After you hit apply or save, your modem will do it’s thing. If you’re using a WiFi connection to do this, you’ll need to reconnect to your WiFi network again (with your new password) to get internet access.

Did that work?? Let us know in the comments!

I know my current WiFi password, I just want it to be changed:

If you already know your current WiFi password, congratulations on being a responsible adult! To change your WiFi to something else, go ahead and follow these instructions:

  1. Depending on the device you’re working with, these instructions may be a little different. If you’ve gone through this and it’s still not working, try searching for your exact model in the search bar above for more detailed instructions that are specific to your modem router or WiFi router.

How to cancel Frontier Internet?

Whether you’re moving or are just switching providers for whatever reason and need to cancel, it’s a pretty easy process. All you need to do is call up Frontier customer service and literally just ask to cancel your account. Once they get your cancellation request, they may try to offer you things to stay with them, but if you’re not interested, just say no thanks and they’ll get you cancelled in a few days. Good luck!!

Will my Frontier modem work with my any WiFi router or do I need a specific brand?

We get this one a lot! The short answer is: Yes, this will probably work with your Netgear, Belkin, or whatever brand wireless router. If the modem you’re looking at has built-in WiFi, you can hook up pretty much any WiFi extender or repeater to it as well to extend the existing wireless network.

How to find my IP address?

There are several ways to find your IP address depending on the device you are using:

  1. On Windows: Open the Command Prompt by pressing the Windows key + R, then type “cmd” and press Enter. Type “ipconfig” and press Enter. Look for the “IPv4 Address” or “IP Address” field.
  2. On Mac: Open the Terminal by searching for it in Spotlight or by finding it in the Applications > Utilities folder. Type “ifconfig” and press Enter. Look for the “inet” field.
  3. On Linux: Open the Terminal by searching for it in the Dash or by finding it in the Applications > Accessories folder. Type “ifconfig” and press Enter. Look for the “inet” field.
  4. On iOS (iPhone or iPad): Go to Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap the name of the Wi-Fi network you are connected to. Your IP address will be listed under “IP Address”.
  5. On Android: Go to Settings > Network & internet > Wi-Fi. Tap the name of the Wi-Fi network you are connected to. Your IP address will be listed under “IP Address”.
  6. On most routers: Open a web browser and type the default gateway IP address of your router. This can usually be found on the bottom of the router or in the documentation. Log in with your admin credentials. Once you are logged in, you should be able to find the IP address of the router under the “status” or “network” sections.
  7. On the internet: you can visit websites like “whatismyip.com” or “ipchicken.com” that will show you your IP address.

It is important to note that your IP address can change depending on your network configuration, so you should check your IP address periodically to ensure that it has not changed.

    I’m trying to figure out where to put the enternrt cord on modum?

      Hi George!

      Where to plug in the ethernet cable will depend on what model number of modem you are working with. On most devices, there will be 5 ethernet ports, (4 LAN ports + 1 WAN port). If you are hooking up a wireless router to your modem, you will want to plug the ethernet into the WAN port (usually this one is grey). If you’re plugging in a printer or a media player, you’ll want to plug those into one of the 4 yellow ports on the back of your modem.

      Again, where to plug everything in will depend on your situation and what model number you’re working with. It’s a good idea to consult the product manual from the manufacturer for setup instructions or reach out to the place you purchased your device from for more specific instructions for setting up your equipment.

      Hope that helps! Please reach out if we can answer any other questions!
