How can i change my router password from the issued one to block others
i have been using the rogers password to my router and now i want to limit the kids access by changing the password to connect to it with only my permission how can i log in and change the existing password. Thank you
My understanding is you're inquiring how to change the administrator login for our router, correct? First and foremost, we need to know which gateway you're using. Can you verify which model modem you have please?
In your original post, just in case you meant to block/grant internet access to others(family, friends etc)instead of router access: You must first enter the router interface through the steps provided by @robindp , I would go ahead and change your default router access password, the username cannot be changed and will remain cusadmin....if you already performed this step through @robindp's guidance, then skip this step altogether and move onto next step
While in router interface, select Wireless>Basic Settings(1st row)> scroll down and turn off WPS Setting (Optional)Turn QOS setting off under multiple SSID's also if you want to create a faster environment throughout the router chipset....then hit save settings at bottom to apply new changes Next step in Wireless>Wps & Security (2nd row) it's in this section that you will make a new password for accessing the internet wirelessly... In Security Settings> Security Mode>WPA-Personal Auth Mode>WPA2-PSK Encrypt Mode>AES Password>delete old password and put in your new password here Then repeat above settings for the 5G radio as well and confirm your new password is the same for both the 2.4G and the 5G radios. Save settings to apply new settings and password and that's it your done
If you want to restrict access to specific devices, you can do that in Security>Device filter then show connected devices and from the list add device to managed list and choose desired time/day setting and whether to restrict/block.....always make sure to save new settings/changes at bottom to apply, anyhow in case you forget to save, you will get a friendly reminder to save new settings. Hope this helps 😊

Hi there all, I forgot to mention when turning off WPS and QOS settings located in Wireless>Basic Settings scroll down and you will see these settings for both 2.4G and 5G....please disable and save/apply these settings for both 2.4G and 5G radios and the same goes for Wireless> WPS & Security Settings Apply the settings and password change to both 2.4 & 5G radios and hit save to apply the new changes.....thanks, have fun & enjoy 😊
