How to change the WiFi password step by step?
Accessing our router
To begin with, we have to find out which digital address our router is located, something we can check from several places. Usually, the most common number we will find is 192.168.0.1, although sometimes it may be 192.168.1.1.
Once the router access address is found, we simply go to an Internet browser, whatever it is, and write that address in the top bar. Then we press Enter and that’s it, the browser will take us to our router settings, which will ask us for a user name and password.
This information usually comes on the label on the back of the router, or perhaps the user is ADMIN and the pw is 00000. If this is not the case, you better call your operator to not make a thousand attempts.
Make the settings
We have already accessed our router through the correct username and password. So, we will have to navigate through the menus, following more or less our intuition (looking for terms like Local Network, or Wireless as a priority) until we reach a section like the “Network Name”, which can also be called “SSID”. This is the name of our WiFi network.
And next to that name, we will find the password section. If we have never changed the name of the network, we can customize it here, it will be easier to find the router when we are going to connect a new device. If we want to change the name of the WiFi, we can do it there.
And whether we carry out this step or not, the next thing step is to change the WiFi password. We recommend you to choose a complex password, it is advisable to mix words that we can remember with letters, numbers and other complex characters, such as percentages, currency symbols, etc. After you choose your password, make sure to save settings, and you are done.
