Go to your router’s configuration page
Open your router’s configuration page. To do so, you will need to type in your router’s default address. Normally this is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, though you need to check your router’s details, as it may differ. If the above addresses bar failed to access the configuration page.
- Press the Window Key +R and entering cmd.
- Once the command prompt opens, type ipconfig and press enter.
- Check the active connections in the list and find the Default Gateway Address.
- This is typically your router address.
Enter your router’s username and password
Every router will require a username and password to login to the innards. Usually, the chances are the username is “admin” or userAdmin” and the password is ‘admin”, and “password”. It can vary from model to model, so first check your model online and see your exact login info. The login information can sometimes be found on the bottom of the router itself.
Open the Wireless Section
Once you logged in router, locate the “Wireless” or “Wireless Security” option. It will likely be listed either on the top or left side of the page. If your “Wireless” section has multiple subsections, open the Wireless Security Page.
Change the Password
In the “Wi-Fi Password” or “Key Box”, enter the new password in the box. Some router will ask that you type the password again to make sure that you type it correctly. Always create a strong password that would be difficult if not impossible to guess. A strong password is usually at least 8 characters long.
Check out your security type-
There are three main types of wireless encryption: WEP, WPA, and WPA2. You should be using WPA2 for the best security network.
You might find some issues while connecting with older devices; however, you should switch to WPA or WPA. We do not recommend WEP, as WEP encryption is very easy to break (it can take less than 30 minutes to crack a WEP password).
Change your network name
Once you’ve done the above instructions, change your network name. Make sure that you do not use any personal name and identity in the network name because the name will be publicly broadcast.
Click Save Changes
Once you changed your password. Click the apply and save button. It may take a few seconds to save, wait till it’s done. Once it’s done; you can connect your Wi-Fi network using your new password.
