Change Router Password

Monday, October 3rd, 2016 by | Filed Under: Hardware & Peripherals, Quick Tips, Security Help, Using The Internet

A reader wants to know how to change their router password. “I have been hacked several times,my IP (Comcast) suggested I change my router password. How do I do that and will that affect any other computers on the router.”

First, yes it will affect all devices connected to that router. You will need to update the password for every device that uses that router.

The Administration Tab

If the router is one you’ve purchased, check the documentation that came with the router or go to the website for the router’s manufacturer and search for the procedure for changing the password.

If your router is from Comcast, you’ll want to check with them for this information. Many routers make it easy by having a site you can go to for changing passwords. You can also click here for basic instructions on changing the password.

But remember, your screens may look different depending on your brand of router.
