Spectrum router login with the My Spectrum App

In some cases when you try to login to your Spectrum router you will see a Basic Router Info page without the possibility to configure the advanced router settings. As the name says it provides some basic information about the router like the MAC address, IPv4 address, the firmware version, default network name and password and so on.

In that case if you were planning to login to your router to make some changes, you will have to do that via the My Spectrum App.

The My Spectrum App will allow you to manage your router settings, change the network name or wireless password, pause or un-pause the Internet connection for specific devices within your network, restart the router and so on.
