Running your own wireless network is very convenient, because you can access the Internet from anywhere in your house or yard. However, anyone in the region can take advantage of your wireless network, so it is a good idea to protect it with a password. The bad part is that securing your network with a password can be a difficult task for users who are not familiar with computers. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you how to setup and change your wireless router’s password, because the method will vary depending on the manufacturer of your device. If you are not sure how to do this, you should look-up your router on the Internet or read the user manual – there will certainly be a section that answers your problem.
What I can tell you is how to change your default Wi-Fi password on all devices you are using. Here we go:
Windows users must click on the Wi-Fi icon situated in the notification area which is found in the right, bottom corner of the screen. This will bring out a list of networks – right click on your network and choose Properties. Switch to the Security tab and write your new password in the “Network Security Key” box.
In my opinion, one of the big minuses of Android is that you can’t edit information about networks. Instead, you have to delete them and create them again, but don’t worry, it isn’t complicated.
Press the Menu button and choose Settings. Navigate through Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi Settings. Find and select your home network, then tap Forget. Go back to Wi-Fi Settings and select your network, then enter the password when prompted.
Just like on Android, you’ll have to recreate the network in order to change the password.
Open Settings > Wi-Fi. Find your home network, tap Forget this Network and confirm data deletion. Find and tap the circled arrow right of your network’s name, then tap the left-pointing arrow near the top of the screen in order to return to the previous menu. Tap your network and enter your new password.
