Re: HOW TO change existing password and name of my Virgin broadband wifi connection?

this will depend on what router you have.

 

Normally you can access the setup from one of the following.

http://192.168.0.1

http://192.168.1.1

http://192.168.2.1

 

Username and passwords compnations to try (if you haven;t reset them)

 

admin/admin

admin/(blank Password)

admin/password

 

If non of this works please post your made and model of you router and someone should be able to give you a better idea.

You can find how to change the Wireless Key in the Help site

 

How do I change my wireless router's WPA network security key/password?

 

There will also be an option within the screens to change the Network name

Hold the reset button in for a couple of seconds and this will return it to the default settings, then use details on label or username: admin, password: changeme. You will of course have to make up a new key. Print the key off and stick it on the router or keep it somewhere safe, and remember to change your password.
