  • Samantha,

    This appears to be the same issue as in the FAQ below.

    This is an issue with the Centurylink service that you would have to have CenturyLink fix for you.

  • Heranda,

    You do not need an internet connection to access the gateways web interface. If you typing in the default IP address in your web browser and not getting the gateway's interface. please call us so we can troubleshoot your unit better.

  • Hello, I seem to be having issues connecting with Frontier. I'm not sure if it's using DHCP or PPPoE, and I'm not sure how to even check, let alone if I need a USRN or PW?

  • Hello, every since I have a Frontier Router GT784WN installed in my home, I have yet to be able to access it through my Browser. No matter what browser I use or what IP address that Frontier has told me to use, or that I have found on the internet. I have spent lot's of time on the phone with them, and they are of NO help at all. They could not even change my user name and password remotely, because they did not know the criteria, and ended up locking my account up. After a 3 hour phone call. It has been a NIGHTMARE. I'm disabled, and this is too much. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S8, and I have tried browser's, Google Chrome, Dolphin, and Fire Fox... I would be so grateful for any help...

  • Diana,
    Unfortunately, we can not provide any support on the Frontier units.
    The default IP should be 192.168.1.1 unless it was changed by a user or the ISP for some reason. Typically, Firewalls and browser security settings are the main cause of failure to access the interface of the units. It is best to try accessing from a wired computer. If you continue to have further issues you will need to contact Frontier at 8009218101.
