To change the Wi-Fi password, follow the instructions below:

NOTE: The PSK must be 8 to 63 characters in length and is case sensitive. Unchecking the Obscure PSK box will display the security key that has been typed.
- WEP – Select 64bit WEP from the drop-down menu. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits. You can use a combination of 0-9, A-F. If you select 128bit, you need to enter 26 hexadecimal characters.
Alternatively, you can enter your preferred password in the PassPhrase field and click generate. The router will generate a WEP key for you.
IMPORTANT: Take note of the code shown in the Key 1 field. This will serve as your Wi-Fi’s security key.
Step 6:Click Apply Changes.
You should now have successfully changed your Wi-Fi password.
