How to change router’s WiFi password or SSID?
Changing the default router password is the first step in securing your WiFi network from intruders. Although the process of changing the router password varies from router brands, the overall concept is the same so you can take the guidance from the following steps to get the basic idea.
Change WiFi Password:
- Open a web browser and enter the IP address of your router such as 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.
- Login to the web-based admin interface using your username and password. Most routers have a default username of admin and password of admin/password.
- Locate Wireless Settings and navigate to the Wireless Security page.
- If not already, turn on the “WPA/WPA2” security option, and in the Password field enter the password of your choice.
- Now click Save to apply the changes.
Once the changes are applied your router will reboot automatically and your WiFi will get disconnected. Use the new WiFi password as specified to re-connect to the network.
Change Network Name (SSID):
- Open your browser and type in http://192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
- Enter the username and password when prompted. For most routers, the default username is admin and the password is admin / password.
- Select Wireless and click the Wireless Settings.
- In the Wireless Network Name (SSID) enter as preferred.
- Click the Save button to save the settings.
Unable to access 192.168.0.1
If you are unable to access 192.168.0.1 or the browser gives an error then it may be due to one of the following reasons:
- Google Chrome: Open settings from top right > More Tools > Clear Browsing Data > Clear Data.
- Mozilla Firefox: Settings > Preferences > Privacy & Security > Cookies and Site Data > Clear Data > Clear.
- Safari: Preferences > Privacy > Manage Website Data > Remove all.
During network configuration some settings may have been done improperly as a result you are unable to log in to your router settings page (Web/Blue GUI). The most straightforward fix for this is to perform a router reset which will revert back all the personalized changes you may have made to default settings.
To initiate a factory reset simply push the small RESET button at the back of your router using a safety pin or toothpick for 5-10 seconds when you see the SYS LED lights blinking on the front panel it means the reset is completed.
