Let's dive into setting up WiFi using the login IP as an example.

Total Time: Approximately 10 minutes

Supply & Tools:

  • Router
  • Computer or mobile phone


  • Ensure that your phone or computer is connected to the same local network as the router. Mobile devices and laptops can connect to the router’s WiFi signal, while desktop computers can use an Ethernet cable to connect to the router’s LAN port.
  • Check the label on the bottom of your router or refer to the user manual to confirm that your router’s default login address is If you’ve modified the default login address, connect to the router’s WiFi and check the WiFi settings to find the default gateway or router IP address.
  • Note down the default username and password for your router (usually found on the back of the router or in the user manual). The username is typically admin, and the password is usually admin or password, sometimes left blank.


Login & Setup Steps

1. Connect the Device to the Router: On your phone or computer, go to WiFi settings, and choose the WiFi to connect to the target router. For desktops, use an Ethernet cable to connect to the router's LAN port.

2. Open a Browser: Open an internet browser (such as Google Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) on your phone or computer. In the address bar, type the router’s IP address:, and press Enter.

3. Enter Username and Password: Once you reach the router’s login page, enter the administrator username and password to log in. Use the credentials you prepared earlier, and click “Login.”

4. Access WiFi Settings: After successful login, you’ll see the router’s management interface. Look for options like “Wireless,” “WiFi Settings,” or similar. Click to access that page.

5. Modify WiFi Settings: On the WiFi settings page, you’ll find options for WiFi name (SSID), password, encryption type, etc. Customize them as needed. You'd better set up an easily memorable WiFi name, use a strong password (usually a combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters), and ensure it at least contains 8 characters. Don’t forget to select an encryption type—preferably WPA3 (if available) or at least WPA2.

6. Save or Apply Changes: Once you’ve made the necessary adjustments, locate the “Save” or “Apply” button on the page (usually at the bottom or top-right corner). Click them to save the changes and make them effective.

7. Reconnect Devices: After resetting the WiFi, devices previously connected to this network may disconnect automatically. You need to search for the new WiFi name and enter the new password to reconnect.


Important Notes

  • Before making changes, back up your current WiFi settings in case you need to revert to the previous configuration.
  • Regularly change your WiFi password to reduce the risk of unauthorized access.
  • Exercise caution when modifying advanced router settings like channel selection and frequency bands. Make changes based on your understanding of their impact.
