how to reset password without ethernet cable?

The instructions to change my router password (its a 2A) require a wired connection to the router but my laptop only has one USB-C port and I don't have any adaptors ... can I do it wirelessly instead?

Yes. Just be aware that if you change your wireless password as well you will loose connection to the hub until you setup the connection with the new password.

Thanks Dave! So I just follow the instructions and ignore the first step of using a wired connection? I understand that I lose connection while in transition from old to new, but this should be just a minute or two...right?

Correct. If your laptop struggles to re-connect, delete the current network connection, search for it again and enter the new wireless password.
