how to reset wifi password

apologies,, I'm certain this has been answered a hundred times but i just can't find the thread.

the short version is that after some workmen were in fixing stuff, my wifi information tab is missing from the back of the router. Stupidly that was the only place i had the password noted down, so now i can't connect anything to WIFI (not to mention I am paranoid about random access to my network now).

I want to reset the password somehow but am clueless how to start. is there an idiot-proof guide for what i must do?

many thanks in advance,

@shetlander Welcome to the forum.  🙂

Are you sure the p/w (wireless key) is not also on a permanent label on the back or the bottom of the router?


Which model of router is it?
