How to Change WIFI name and password without the app

@EG  

Now that the website is gone how do I even change the password or WIFI name if I ever decide to. My phone is old and I don't want to download anymore apps for it? Are there any other way?

@Tatyana1 Possibly directly through the gateway's built-in admin tool at 10.0.0.1, but I'm not sure if that even works anymore;

I think that the app is the only way now.... Good luck !

@EG  Not everyone has a smart phone, I'm not saying I don't, but I know people that don't. I have bad eyes and I avoid apps. Admin tool no longer really works to change password. This is a very bad move by Comcast. But anyways EG,  when there was an XFI website I had advanced security turned off, so if I was to get the app will I have to disable that feature again or will all my settings transfer automatically?

Yep ! You are preaching to the choir here......

I'm not sure if the advanced security feature will remain to be disabled, but at least with the app, you should be able to see what its status is and be able to toggle it on or off.

@EG  I called Comcast today and they said that right now the only way to change WIFI name or password is through the app, or they can do it on their end if I wanted to, However they said that XFI website is coming back in the future and that they didn't remove it permanently. I do not know if they were bluffing or not.
