Be aware that if your current IP address is 192.1680.1.1, it is actually false. The correct IP address you should be using is 192.168.0.1. A router will typically use 192.168.0.1 whereas additional devices and alternative hosts will have higher numbers.

Entering the IP Address of 192.168.0.1.1
If you'd like to access your wireless router's control panel, type http://192.168.0.1 into your browser's address bar, not 192.168.0.1.1. It will then ask you to enter your username and password.
Instead of 192.168.0.1.1, which is false, most current devices accept 192.168.0.1 as being fully authorised. Once you've accessed your router via the method above, you can access the admin panel. Many options are available to adjust, for both beginners and experts. These include MAC, DSL, WPS, QoS, WAN, LAN, WLAN settings, Proxy and many more. Whereas most users find the basic or default options suitable for their daily needs, they sometimes have to make adjustments.
If You Forget Your Username or Password
If you haven't logged in to your router for some time, it's easy to forget your username or password. In order to deal with this situation, read our article "Recover your router password" and/or check our "default list of router username and passwords".

Change the Wi-Fi Password
If you don’t protect your wireless network right, you risk exposing your personal information. Keep your data safe by doing a minimal amount of effort. Setting up a strong Wi-Fi password is the easiest way to make sure undesirable individuals don’t have access to your network.
Fortunately, changing the wireless network password is not rocket science. All you have to do is follow several easy steps.
- Open your router’s configuration page. To do that, go to the address bar in your browser (Mozilla, Chrome, Safari, MS Edge) and type http://192.168.0.1 (Remember that 192.168.0.1.1 is an incorrect address, so do not use it). Hit enter, and you will receive a prompt to fill in an admin name and password. You will find those on the label at the bottom of your router.
- You will find yourself on your router’s configuration page. There you need to find the wireless tab. Click on it to open the wireless network settings page, where you will set up your new password.
- The design of the menu varies from manufacturers to manufacturer. If your wireless menu has multiple subsections, find the one named “Wireless Security” or similar. There you will have the opportunity to fill in your new password. Some routers will ask you to confirm the changes by typing the new password twice.
- Make sure you choose a strong password, potential hackers will have a hard time cracking. Use a long-phrase and use a combination of upper and lower cases. Adding digits and special symbols such as “#”, “!” and “&” might also be a good idea. If you want a truly random sequence of symbols that will be nearly impossible to crack, check online. There are random password generators you will find useful.
- Save the changes and proceed to enjoy your secure browsing experience.
Just one important note: make sure you remember your new password. You can write it down temporarily until you are certain you know it by heart. That’s not the ideal situation. Choose a phrase that means something to you, so you memorize it and the way you wrote it down immediately. If you forget your new Wi-Fi password, you will have to restart your router to factory settings.
