One area of security weakness for Wi-Fi routers can be their admin password. This is set when the router is manufactured and is generally very basic, along the lines of “admin” or “password”. It is therefore important to change this password as soon as possible, to make it more secure. To do this:
1) Open a web browser and type the router’s address in the address bar. (This is usually in the form of 192.168.1.1 or similar. Check with the documentation that came with the router, or search on the web using your router’s model name).
2) Enter the Username and Password. If these have never been changed they should be along the lines of Admin and Password. Check the router’s documentation if you are unsure about the default login details.
3) Access the section for changing the password, and update the router with a secure password.
