How do I change my wireless network password?

To change the password of your wireless network, use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the wireless modem, navigate to the Wireless Settings section, and change the password.

  1. Open a new browser window. Type 192.168.0.1 into the address bar. Hit Enter to bring up the Router Administration page.
  2. You will now be asked for your username and password. If you have not set your own username and password, leave the Username field blank, enter “password” into the Password field and click the Log In button.
  3. From the menu bar, click on “Setup”.
  4. Select “Quick Setup”.
  5. Look for “Pre-Shared Key”.  Carefully enter your new password into the accompanying field and take note of it for future reference.
  6. Click the Save Settings button. The router may reboot; therefore, you may need to restart your computer or re-establish your wireless connection.
