Reboot your Spectrum modem and Wi-Fi router

  • So you’re all juiced up and connected to the internet, but your Spectrum Wi-Fi is still giving you guff?
  • No problem, just unplug your Spectrum modem and Wi-Fi router and plug it back in after waiting 60 seconds, and your router will reboot.
  • Rebooting can help free up precious memory and clean up any minor bugs that might be messing with your internet connection.

Find your Spectrum Wi-Fi network name or password

  • When it comes to Wi-Fi woes, another common hotspot is a lost or forgotten Wi-Fi network name or password.
  • The good news is that nine times out of ten your Wi-Fi network name and password can be found on the label of your modem/router.
  • Can’t remember your Wi-Fi password? You can find it and reset it by logging in to your Spectrum account, navigating to the Service section, and clicking on Internet.

Internet Outage in My Area

Remember, if you are experiencing an internet outage, the problem may not be your computer or your equipment. In addition to performing the troubleshooting steps above, be sure to check to see if there is a Spectrum internet outage in your area.

If Spectrum is aware of a widespread internet outage, it will be reflected on the internet outage map. If your area is on the internet outage map, then you can sign up to receive an internet outage notification or an internet outage report when the issue has been resolved.

You can create, manage or cancel support or repair requests, and update the callback phone number on a repair request or ticket. This will ensure that you receive the most timely and up-to-date internet outage notification about your internet service as well as other internet outages near your area.

The team will send your request to a support specialist or send a technician to your home or office to help resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

General Information about Service Outages


Internet outage Spectrum usually happens because of unexpected changes in the weather. The providers keep tracking the weather through local and online weather services. When severe weather is imminent, the team follows a storm preparedness plan which consists of the following:

Storm Preparation

Spectrum business team works closely with the cities and towns in advance of a hurricane or storm to ensure that despite the weather, the lines of communication remain open. The company has pre-established lines of communication with the local, state and federal officials.

Reporting an Outage

In case of a power outage in your region, it’s recommended to call your power company for inquiry. Power outage in your region could affect the network and delay service restoration. If there is no power outage in your locality and there is no Spectrum Internet outage either, call customer service to troubleshoot the issue.

Be Patient during the Restoration

Customers are encouraged to remain patient during restoration especially after severe weather events. The commercial power outage can affect cable, Internet and voice services. Even if the power in your area has been restored, the outage may still be affecting Spectrum’s network. This causes a delay in restoration.

What to Do During Power Outage?

Call Spectrum and report about the outage. If the electrical wires have been trapped by a fallen tree, don’t touch anything. Instead, call the local emergency technician. Reach out to the local Power Company to report the problem. Arrange a power backup while your services are being restored. Disconnect all those appliances that are connected to power (lights, water heater, furnace, washer, dryer, stove, refrigerator). The same goes for electronic devices and computers. Once the repower is restored, turn the appliances on one by one. Make sure no power surge occurs.
