In the internet age, we all have wifi / adsl modem routers at home now, and forgetting the password we need to connect to the internet is an event that can happen to everyone. You may have many reasons to change the wifi password, so today we will learn how to easily set a new WiFi password and name (SSID) using Mac computer, iPhone or mobile phone with ios operating system. There are many benefits to setting a strong security Key / wifi Code to prevent your bandwidth being stolen. There are two ways to change the Modem / Router’s WLAN password using the router’s configuration software page (current password must be known / device must be connected to the network) or the router must be reset to factory settings. To do this, you first need to know the brand of your router and the IP address it uses to access the settings. You can access the list of admin and password, which vary according to the router brands and the IP address they use. Check out the list below. In fact, there is no clear difference between changing from a computer or changing from a phone. There are different steps that you have to follow, unlike just the computer. But you need to follow our instructions, so don’t worry we’re here to help you.
Usually the most commonly used ip addresses:
192.168.10.1 , 192168101
192.168.1.1 , 192.168.l.l , 192168ll , 19216811
You checked the list, learned the brand you have and the username – password, so what’s next?
Type the IP address used by your modem in the address section of your browser( check all routers IP address and login passwords on our website). All you have to do is enter the username and password. Standard router addresses are: 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, enter the routers username and password ( Generally, username =’admin’ , password = ‘password’).
Now, you have entered the interface, now you can change whatever setting you want to set like password , SSID name etc. . After that, don’t forget to click the save button. The router will take some to process the new change, with this all devices currently connected will be disconnected. You have to connect all devices again by using the new password.
What should you consider when changing Wi-Fi password?
Use at least 8 letters, upper and lower case,
It is safer if you use symbols and numbers together.
Since many modems today support dual band technology, you can use 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands at the same time and protect both with separate passwords. So you will have two Wi-Fi networks in one modem. We recommend using the 5 GHz when nearby, or the 2.4 GHz when further away.
