Why Change Your Wi-Fi Password?

In the beginning, we have to answer the most basic question: Why is it important to change your Wi-Fi password?

Of course, there is no doubt that numerous users already know the answer, but for those users who don't know let's tell you that just now using the router for the first time, we want to emphasize the importance of changing the Wi-Fi password for the first time.

There are several reasons why you should change your password is important. Here we will list two:

  • Neighbors who “steal” your internet – This is a very common occurrence these days. First of all, you should know that a neighbor can very easily “crack” your password because most of the routers in the market have similar default Wi-Fi passwords. Using (or rather stealing) the Internet from your neighbors who are within range of your Wi-Fi network will lead to poorer performance of your Internet – it will be much slower.
  • Hackers – Hackers can also benefit greatly from your Wi-Fi internet. They can cause you a huge problem. Hackers, unlike neighbors, do not want to use your internet for free but want your personal and bank information.
To avoid finding yourself in these situations, you should change your Default Wi-Fi password.

How to Get Basic Information Of Hathway Router?

The basic information we will tell you about routers are:
  • default username/password (router GUI credentials)
  • network name (SSID) and password
  • default IP address.
The reason why you need this information is that without this information you cannot log in to your router, and therefore you won't be able to change your Wi-Fi password. You can find these pieces of information (on almost all brands of routers) on the sticker on the bottom or back of the router.

Another Way to Find an IP address:

As mentioned earlier, almost all router models available in the market have their basic information, including their IP address, on the bottom or back of the router. In case it is not on the sticker of the router then what to do? Tension not, we got you.
In this situation, you can easily get the IP address of your router, and here’s how:
At the command prompt, you have to type Ipconfig, and then press Enter button. Now find the Default Gateway section.
Next to the Default Gateway section, you will see a number. This number is your IP address.

How to Perform Router Reset?

To change the Wi-Fi password, you need to log in to your router. If you haven’t changed it so far, then you’ll use the defaults, but if you’ve changed it and can’t remember the current password? Then What To do?🤔

Well every problem has a solution and in this case, there is also a solution to this situation and that is resetting the router.

After applying this procedure (reset), any changes you have made to the router will be deleted. This means that after the reset, you should be able to log in to the router again using the default password. 

You don’t need a lot of knowledge or experience with routers to reset your router. All you have to do is press the reset button and hold it for 10-15 seconds, and then release it. The reset button is located on the back or on the side of the router and is tucked into a pinhole, so you have to use some thin object like a SIM ejector pin if you want to press it.
