As we discussed, how to change gmail password in last post. Here, we'll learn about How to Change Wi-Fi Password. Wireless
Networking has made it very easy for one and all to use Wi-Fi when at home. Wi-Fi
password needs to be changed again and again because of big security reasons. This
article will narrate you how you can change the password of your Wi-Fi
connection and keep your bandwidth safe and tenable. In this article of mine, I
am going to write about changing of Wi-Fi password for its safe keeping.
Log on to the organization page of your router
configuration page of your router and then enter the standard address of the
router in the address bar of the same browser. If entering the standard router
address does not open the configuration page, please open the command prompt
and check the IP configuration by entering ipconfig.
Find the router address by observing the active association. If you are still
not able to find the standard address, then better find the default address by
resetting the router.
Enter the name
Every router has
got their default username and password. If you have changed it and then
forgot, then please reset your router by long pressing the reset button and
find out the default credentials. Log into the router using those new credentials.
inside the router open the section for wireless settings. If you have multiple
subsections then click on to open the Wireless Security page.
Never keep your
router with the default name. Because almost all the routers have got similar
default names and people can easily access into your Wi-Fi using the default
router name. Instead, change the router name and keep a different one. Make
sure you keep on changing the router name frequently so that even if anyone has
got the password would not be able to access your Wi-Fi for long.
Change the password.
In the box labeled
as “Password”, please enter your new password. If needed for reconfirmation of
the same, then carefully type it again in the next box. Make sure that the
password that you enter is really strong and tough to guess. Do not forget to
include special characters like @, #, $ and make sure that the password
consists of 8 characters.
Enable Network Encryption
Out of the
encryptions never go for WEP encryption. Because it can easily be broken down. People can very
easily find out your password if you are using the WEP encryption. The most protected
encryption type is the WPA2. It is difficult to crack a password protected with
this encryption. But if there occurs any kind of connection problem, then you
can switch to WPA.
Save your Changes.
your user id and password just save the changes by clicking the ‘Save’ or
‘Apply Changes’ button. It will take some time to save the changes. Once the
changes are saved, then all the systems and gadgets connected to your network
will be disconnected. Once all the devices are disconnected, just reconnect
your device by using the new user id and password.
Trim down the Range of the Signal
router’s mode as 802.11g to reduce the range of your Wi-Fi network. Because by
doing so you will stop your neighbours in reaching to your network. Try casing the antenna using any foil so that at
least the signals can be restricted to some extent.
Instead of upsetting
about the encryptions you can also just paint your walls using the Anti-Wi-Fi
paints. Because by doing so the signals will get soak up by the wall and cannot
go out of your house. This way you can secure your Wi-Fi from getting used by
