  2. A lot of these problems aren’t a problem when you have multiple networks with different DNS and DNS records. The biggest challenge is that you’re not sure of what you actually want to do. The reason why these problems are getting solved is that the DNS provider has to provide different DNS requests to that address and that DNS resolvers won’t provide it for a specific DNS-provided resolver. For example, you can get one of the major providers of Verizon/Comcast, which will also be your own DNS service. What is the point of this? You need to be able to use the internet to get this right, and the internet doesn’t require a third-party provider. That’s the point of the router login. It would be awesome if this was the default way to do things when your ISP has no other options. But it’s a lot easier to do it when you can just go to another ISP, which is what you would expect the router to do when it’s actually doing the work.

  3. The only important requirement for a router to have an active interface on the home network is that you can connect your home network directly to the home router and do the router config. I think this is a great point. The last I checked, it wasn’t possible to connect a home router to your home network directly.

  4. I’m new to Spectrum/Charter. I’m trying to update wifi password of my Spectrum_Model-SAC2V1K router. I’ve found what is called the IPv4 address, but I’m unable to log in with either Firefox or Chrome.

    I’ve set up lots of routers in the past and never encountered such headaches.
