To change your WiFi name and password, open a web browser and type your router’s IP address into the address bar. Then enter your router’s username and password. Finally, search for Wireless settings, enter your new username and password, and click Apply or Save.
- Open a web browser. You can use Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or any other web browser.
- Then type your router’s IP address into the search bar and press the Enter key. Most routers have the same private IP address. So, you can try entering “192.168.0.1” or “192.168.1.1” or “10.0.0.1” into the address bar of your browser. If those don’t work.
- Next, enter your router’s username and password and click Sign In. Your router’s username and password are not the same as your WiFi username and password. You might be able to find your router’s username and password printed somewhere on your router or in its manual.
- Then click Wireless. You will usually see this in a menu on the left side of your window. This button might have a different name, depending on your router. You might also have to click through other buttons to find the basic settings of your wireless router.
- Next, change your new WiFi name and/or password. You will usually be able to change your WiFi network in a text box next to “Name,” or “SSID” (which stands for Service Set Identifier). To change your WiFi password, you usually have to choose a security option first.
- Finally, click Apply or Save. Your changes won’t go into effect until you click Apply or Save.
