Hi grugru


Here's a step-by-step on how to change your password. It is recommended you do this through a wired connection.

 

1. Open a web browser and type 192.168.0.1

2. Once prompted login with username admin and password sky

3. Go to setup/wireless settings (depending on router type)

4. Change encryption type if desired

5. Type new password into network key box

6. Click apply at the bottom of the page.

 

This will change it straight away. All devices currently connected will have to be updated as these will stop working wirelessly as soon as the password is changed.

Re: How do I change my router password?

You don't use your details to login to your router as you have to use these ones:

 

Username - admin

Password - sky

Re: How do I change my router password?

Type 192.168.0.1 into your address bar in your browser, where you type the www internet addresses and use these details:

Username - admin

Password - sky

And now look for the "Wireless Settings" section, when you have found it you should see the box with your current password displayed, so change it and remember to save it. Now you will need to change the password on any wireless devices you use like a laptop, wireless printer etc..
