How to Change WiFi Passwords Through D-link

Adding a password to your wireless network is an excellent way to protect your connection and personal information. However, you may find that adding new devices to the network can be a difficult task if you are unable to remember the password you selected. You can reset the password on your D-Link router by logging into the control panel and making a few quick tweaks. Once finished, you should write down the password and put it in a safe place for future reference.

      Click "Apply" to save your changes.

Tips & Warnings

  • Your D-Link control panel may be locked by an administrative username and password. The default username for D-Link routers is "admin" and the default password is "admin."
  • If you have changed the administrative password on your router and cannot access the control panel, unplugging the router and using a paperclip to depress the small reset button on its back panel will reset the control panel to its default values.
