Is your network traffic getting too much? Maybe it’s time you manage the number of connected devices on your WiFi network. In this article, we will guide you on how to change TP-Link router password to gain more control of your network and possibly get more boost out of your internet connection.
Change TP-Link Router Password
- Assuming that you already connected to the internet using the TP-Link router, all you need to do now is open your preferred web browser.
- Type in the search bar the http://192.168.l.l – 192.168.1.1 Admin Login. (Alternatively you can go to tplinkwifi.net)
- A login prompt will appear. Just type “admin” for username and “admin” for the password. That is if no one has already changed the username and password yet. The admin is the default login info that TP-Link requires.
- As soon as you are on the TP-Link router user interface, go to Management > Access Control > Password. Or in some other TP-Link routers, it is Maintenance> Administrator.
- Also, try System Tools > Manage Control. Those are the most common user interface you might find. If that is not the case, see TP-Link’s website for the exact map on how to get to the Administrators page control.
- You will find the three blank areas for the password. Just type in your old password and followed by two copies of your new preferred password combination.
- Save or apply the new password you have entered.
- Sometimes, you will notice that your devices that are connected to the WiFi will be disconnected. If this happens, just connect again using the old WiFI password.
- To test if the new password was applied, just log in again to the TP-Link web interface. If all is well, you can now be rest assured that you are the only one who has access to your TP-Link router. That is until you share the password with other people again.
