How do I change my WiFi password?

Changing your WiFi credentials is quick and easy. Simply follow the steps in our handy video or the step-by-step guide below.

It's important to note that changing your wireless settings may cause your wireless devices to disconnect from the router. Depending on the changes that you've made, you may need to reconnect your wireless devices with the new settings.

Please note that we strongly recommend you use the original password supplied with the equipment in case it is forgotten or if you are required to factory reset the router.

WiFi icon icon.
