1. Access the Administration Panel of your Router
This can be done by opening your internet browser and typing in the address bar 192.168.1.1.
Once you hit enter, an authentication panel would pop-up requiring you to enter a username and password.

Note: If entering 192.168.1.1 does not bring up anything, your default gateway may not be that. For Windows, just go to Run command (Windows Start button, then click Run), and then type “CMD”. A DOS prompt would pop-out and you would just need to type, “IPCONFIG”. Look for the words “Default Gateway”, the numbers beside it are the ones you need to enter into your browser

The usual username and password is “admin” (without the quotes). For some routers, the username is admin, and the password is blank. If you haven’t changed this, the username and password is the default. If you don’t know the default username and password, you could check it at www.routerpasswords.com

2. Set the SSID or Username
