If your device is currently connected to the Wi-Fi router, you can use this guide to change your wireless password.
You will need your router's IP address. This may be located under the router along with the username and password. If you are unable to locate it, follow these steps:
- Open your command prompt (You can do this by typing cmd into windows search and clicking on the command prompt application)
- Once open, type ipconfig and press enter.
- Look through the results and find your default gateway. This is your router's IP address.
Once you have located your router's IP address, open your web browser and put the IP address in the web address bar. This will bring you to a login screen where you will need to:
- Enter your username and password. *You can find this underneath your router. If not, a quick google search "What is my router's username and password" along with the brand/model name should give you the info required.
- Once you are logged into the router, click on the wireless section, and then go through the settings until you see wireless security. Look for either a wireless passphrase or wireless security key. Next to these phrases is the Wi-Fi password.
- Delete whatever is in the box and input your new password.
- Before you click ok or save, kindly remember that all devices that are currently connected will need to reconnect with the new password.
