How to change the WiFi password on a TP-Link router

So, how do you change your password on TelOne WiFi? I have a TP-Link WiFi router and, although there are some articles out there that claim to have the answer to how one goes around changing the password on a WiFi router, none actually gave me the answer that I was looking for. I suppose its a matter of there being differences in firmware, even with routers from the same manufacturer. So, how do you change the WiFi Password on a TelOne ADSL router?

  1. Type the IP Address: into your browser and press the “enter” key on your keyboard
  2. You will be taken to a page where you are asked to input your username and password
  3. The default keyword and password are both “admin”
  4. Press Login and you will now have access to your router’s settings
  5. Next, click on Interface Setup
  6. On the page that appears, click on the Wireless option.
  7. This takes you to the page where you can go about changing you WiFi password.
  8. On the page, scroll down to WPS Settings
  9. Under Authentication Type, choose WPA2-PSK
  10. Immediately under that, you will see Encryption and then Pre-Shared Key
  11. This is where you enter your desired password. The password must have at least 8 characters
  12. After typing in your password, scroll down to the bottom of your page and click on the Save button

That’s basically how to change TelOne WiFi password. Now that you know how to do it, changing your password is one good way of keeping out all those snooping neighbors who, one way or the other, may have gotten hold of your password. It’s also generally advisable to change one’s WiFi password on a regular basis. That way, you can be sure that you are keeping yourself protected.

  2. Hi I tried following those steps using the username and password admin but im failing to log in, i have contacted Telone but they do not respond, what do i do?

    • Hey. Tell me what you router is. I mean the type. The instructions are for TP link. Telone is usually very responsive. So if they are not, it may be because of the COVID 19 situation. Admin is almost always the default login for WIFi routers of any type. Anyway, tell me what you have so I can do some research.

  3. I’m commenting from Byo. Good stuff. Your method works like charm. Thanks. I gave someone my password thinking they’ll keep it to themselves but to my surprise I saw the entire neighborhood lurking around my gate. I knew they were hotspotting. I didn’t like it and had to change the password.

  4. Hi there recently changed wifi password but the router isn’t connecting to internet.
    What can i do to make it connect?

    • Did you reset the router at some point? If yes, then you need to get in touch with TelOne to get the correct settings. I don’t think changing the WiFi password has any effect on internet. Check if you still have data. Otherwise get in touch with TelOne. They are a tad slow these days in responding to faults, but that’s probably due to Covid

    • Hi. Check on the router label for the correct login details. That’s usually underneath the device. But first, try root for the username and admin for the password
