WiFi Network Name & Password

Your wireless router is pre-set with WPA2 encryption with a unique network name (SSID) and password. The default SSID and password are uniquely generated for every device. You can find this information on a label on the back or side of your router when you need it to connect a device to your network.

Buying Your Own Router

If you choose, you can purchase your own router to use with Spectrum Internet.

  • We recommend the router be an 802.11ac router with a built-in gigabit switch.
  • Most 802.11ac routers have a built-in full-duplex 10/100 Ethernet switch, which can inhibit the system from achieving appropriate speeds.
  • For heavy internet and multiple wireless device usage (e.g. watching live video on multiple devices), we suggest using a router that provides concurrent dual-band wireless-AC connections.
