How to change the wireless network name and wireless password.
Condition: Router Credentials.
Router Credentials are the username and password required to access your router configuration settings and options. The default user name (usually “admin”) and password are usually printed on a label on the bottom or back of the router, or can be found in the router manual (manufacturer’s documentation). *
1. We recommend changing the default credentials to prevent unauthorized access to your router and network.
2. If you have changed the default credentials and forgot them, the only way to get access to the router settings is to reset the router to factory settings. (To do this, refer to your router’s Manual or see instructions in “Additional Help” at the end of this article).

Now that you know the router’s local IP address, you are ready to go to the router interface to change the Wireless Name and/or Password. To do this:
1. Open your web browser (eg Chrome, Firefox, etc.).

1. Find the Reset button on the router. The reset button is usually a small button located on the back of the router, labeled “Reset”.
