Which password?  The routers admin password or the wireless password?  All info is in the manual.

Re: change wifi password

If you are talking about the router’s login password then do the following:

  • Access the router’s ui by opening a browser (i.e internet explorer) then type in the browser’s address bar http://192.168.1.1 (default ip address). Username is blank (or admin) and password is just admin
  • Fo to the administration tab and from there you will be able to change the login password.

 

If you would like to change the router’s wireless password then check on the link below to know on how to change the router’s wireless password

Re: change wifi password

cannot able to access 192.168.1.1, browser ask for username and password, i followed instruction by putting admin or blank as username and admin for password. still failed to access the portal. 

 

How about restoring the cisco wifi modem to factory default settings? is that action can help to change the password by installing it again?

 

If yes, dont know how to do it.

 

tnx

Re: change wifi password

I'm changing the wireless password, because as i check there are so many intruders to my internet connection, and it makes our connection slow.

By default the username is blank and the password is "admin". If that's not working, your last option here is to reset the router and reconfigure. You can access the articles below that will help you reset and reconfigure the device.
