Good day,

Please follow these steps to change your router password:

Make sure you're connected to the internet

  • You need to access your router to change the password

The quickest way to access your modem is through a web browser, eg: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari.

Most routers/modems come with a manual specifying the IP address of the device allowing you to connect to it.

Most routers use IP address: or or

but it's best to check the manual to be sure.

  • Open a new web browser window.

In the address bar, type and press Enter.

  • Select Change Wireless Password in the right hand menu. Or select Wireless settings, Setup or Wireless depending on your router type.
  • Enter the default router settings username and password in lowercase.

Username: admin

Password: admin or password

If these login details don’t work you’ll need to reset your router.

  • Enter the new Network Key (NEW wireless password) you want to use.
  • Select Apply to save your new settings.

Reconnect all your devices using your new wireless password.
