Overview


Configure My Router

Select your device—including FiOS® Internet Router, SpeedStream 6520 or SE 567 Gateway, Westell 7500 or Netgear 7550 Gateway or your own router—for detailed instructions on how to set your specific router or modem to work wirelessly. This will enable you to have a wireless network, providing connectivity and Internet access to all of your wireless-capable devices.

Note: The default  SSID or ESSID (Extended Service Set Identifier) and password should be printed on a sticker on the bottom of your router. Unless you have already changed the SSID/ESSID and password, the settings on the sticker must match those you have entered in your device for Wi-Fi access.

For former AT&T customers in Connecticut: Here are pdf-icon basic instructions for configuring your Frontier-supplied DSL modem to work with your own router.
