wifi password.

Ok.

I was on live chat last night because my router was playing up on wifi password.

I was walked through how to reset wifi password back to factory reset.

 

All was good. put passwords into my laptop and phones all well and working.

 

Now today i went to re name wifi name in router and when i select settings i get the admin and password.

I put the password in but it has locked me out.

 

How can the password work with my laptop and phones but not when i want to chnge any settings?

 

Thanks.

karl.

If I understand you correctly, you are mixing up the WiFi password with the Admin Password - to connect devices to the router's Wifi you use the Wifi password, to log into the router to change settings you use the Admin Password.

Both passwords should be on the label on the router.

Silly me.

My head is all over the place but for some reason could not see the woods for the trees. LOL.

Thanks.
