And if you don’t then don’t panic and try to find it on your router back its usually there. In my case it is
Yours could be 192.168.8.1 or 192.168.10.1 or anything. If you still don’t have it you can search for it on the internet just type your router’s company name and router name and for admin pannel address and there you have it.
No it will ask you for your admin pannel password.
Its usually admin : admin or admin : password. It could be different because sometimes it is set on the installation of router. Again you can search for default passwords on the internet for your router or try to find it on router’s back.

You can also change configurable items such as security logins, encryption parameters, WiFi settings, Wifi SSid name, Passwords. There is also some advance settings like opening ports adding application and much more.
How you really gonna change you wifi password
You will need to understand the simple terms in wifi world that might be useful to our tutorial.
- Your network name can also be known as a Wireless Network Name or SSID.
- Your WiFi password can also be known as a WPA Pre-Shared Key.
First of all open your browser(software).
Open admin panel
Once you are logged into your router, you will need to find the Wireless section of the configuration page.. Go to wifi (wireless) settings. Again it could be different for device to device.
- If your “Wireless” section has multiple subsections, open the Wireless Security page.
Change the password. Look for the box labeled “Password”, “Passphrase” or “Shared Key”. You can enter your new password into this box. Some routers will ask that you type the password again to ensure that you entered it correctly.
- Make sure your password is secure. Never use passwords such as “password,” “12345,” easily-found dates or names, etc., and never leave your wireless router with no password at all!
- Try to create a strong password that would be difficult if not impossible to guess. It should not be related to anything personal, and should include a liberal amount of numbers, random cases, and special characters such as “!”, “$” and “#”.
- A strong password is usually at least 8 characters long.
Check out your security type. There are three main types of wireless encryption: WEP, WPA, and WPA2. For the most secure network, you should be using WPA2.
You may run into issues connecting older devices, however, in which case you could switch to WPA or WPA/WPA2. Selecting WEP is NOT recommended, as WEP encryption is very easy to break (it can take less than 30 minutes to crack a WEP password).
Change your network name. While you’re here, take a moment to change your network name if you have not already.
The name should not include any personally identifiable information, as the name will be publicly broadcast. Changing the name will help deter people from trying to break into it. Routers with default names are seen as easier hacking targets.
Save your settings. Once you are done entering in your new password, click the Apply or Save button. The button’s location is different for every router, but is typically located at the top or bottom of the page.
The router will take a few moments to process the change, at which point any devices currently connected would be disconnected.
- After your settings are changed, you can connect to your wireless network using your new password.
Frequently asked Questions
Q: How can i change wifi password if I don’t have a computer?
Ans: You can easily do it with your android device or anyother handset. Just Open any web explorer in your handset and do the things like this tutorial show you to do with pc.
Q: How many times can I change my WiFi password in year?
Ans: Well its upto you. You can technically change your WiFi password as many times as you want in a year. How many times you choose to do it depends on how secure you want your network to be.
If you want to keep it really secure, you might choose to change your password as much as once a week. However, you should also consider convenience when making your decision. Every time you change your password on your router, you’ll also have to enter the new password on all the devices that regularly connect to your network.
Q: How can I find my router’s password?
Ans: If it has not been changed, it should be on the manual or on the router itself. If it has been changed, and the original/factory password doesn’t work, then you need to reset it. You can do this by pressing the small, red reset button on the router. Note that this will reset ALL settings to their default positions.
Q: What is the password of the login admin?
Ans: Try any of the following: admin, changem, or password. Some routers don’t require a password, so you could also try leaving it blank. As a last resort, you could check your router; it will most likely have the default admin password written on the back or on the bottom.
Q: I can’t open my router’s configuration page. What should I do?
Ans: Go to google and then search for “MY IP”. Then google will show you an ip address. Copy it and paste it in your browser’s url column and press enter. Then it will ask your for a username and password. By default, both are “admin”. Type those and you can log in. (You should be connected to the wifi from that router.) Then go to the settings page and look for PRE SHARED KEY. That is the wifi password. Just change it.
Q: What if I have forgotten the password?
Ans: Push the reset button on the router for 30 to 40 seconds and the router will reset to default, then you can use the default password on your router.
