What is the default IP address to access Actiontec Modems, Routers or Gateways?

The default IP address for accessing most of the Actiontec Modem and Routers is "192.168.0.1". The exceptions are the Actiontec Modems and Routers made and branded for a specific Internet Service Provider (ISP). The Modems and Routers made for a specific ISP will have a sticker on the bottom of the device with the default IP address on it. However, the IP address can be changed by the user, so it is important to document and save the IP address when it is changed. It is suggested that the IP address should be written on a label that is then attached to the Modem or Router. If this new IP address is communicated to technical support early in any relevant conversation, it will save time and confusion.

  • I am a student in security, I checked my modem /router from Spectrum to review the stats and get a manual. I can not make out the gibberish so I can figure out the make.
    My model 3 number is TC8717T , it's called TECHNICOLOR s/n cp1339DB4YL.
    Can you help with the diagnosis???

  • I have a c3000a and am considering getting the renewed WCB6200Q extender. Will the adding of this automatically change my ip addresses? I used to work in DSL tech support with US West years ago and kind of know enough that this is a concern to me.

  • Carla,
    The C3000A would still manage your IP addresses. The WCB6200Q does not have DHCP server capability.
    The discontinued C3000A does not have MoCA capability so you will also need a ECB6200 installed at the modem location to provide the MoCA signal to the WCB6200Q.
