Changing your WiFi password is a great way to help keep your network secure. If you have a Linksys router, the process is easy. I’ve included instructions below for both standard and Smart WiFi users.

1 – Change or reset your Linksys WiFi Password

If you’re using a standard Linksys router, you can reset your WiFi password through the router.

  1. Access the router by opening a browser window and visiting http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar.
  2. Log into your router with the current username and password. Visit our guide to find more info on how to log in to a Linksys router. If you’re unable to log in, you may need to reset the router to factory default settings.
  3. Once you’ve accessed the router, go to Wireless > Wireless Security. Older models will say Wireless Settings instead of Wireless Security.
  4. Enter a new WiFi password in the Passphrase field.
  5. Save the changes.
