How do we change the default SSID and  Wifi password?

Have you ever experienced having to deal with long SSID (Wifi name) and a 12 characters long alpha-numeric password that is hard to remember? When you just got your internet connection up and running by your ISP provider, or if you just bought a new router, chances are you get a very weird SSID name and Password.

Below, we will guide you on how to change the SSID and the wifi password.

Step 1. Connect your laptop/computer to the router using a LAN cable or wifi.

Step 2. Login the router. Open your favorite browser and type in the ip address of the router.


To check the default ip and username password, refer to the back of your router and look for something like this:

Step 3. Click on the WLAN tab


Here you can change the SSID NAME, and Set the WPA Preshared key/ password for the wifi.

Step 4. Click apply – your router will restart and will apply the new settings.

*if you are connected via wifi you should now see the new SSID you created over the wireless section of your laptop.


5. Connect to your new SSID and enter the password you created.
