  1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router in the address bar, press Enter to access the router’s web-based management page. You need to login with your router password.

    You can locate the default username, default password and router’s IP address on the bottom of the router itself. If you’ve changed the router password but forgot it, you can reset your router to the factory. With the power switched on, use a pin to press and hold the Reset button on the side panel of your router for 10 seconds.

  3. After changing your Wi-Fi password, you need to restart the router to apply the changes.
