How to change Wifi Password on PLDT Home Fibr Router
To change the wifi password on PLDT Home Fibr router we need first to access the login page of the router.
By default the address is 192.168.1.1 so go ahead and open up a web browser (preferably modern browsers such as Google Chrome / Firefox / Opera / etc.) and enter this on the address bar: https://192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.1 (with or without the https:// see which works out for you.)
If you are shown with this kind of error “Your connection is not private” simply click the advanced button and click on Proceed to 192.168.1.1 (unsafe)
Afterwards, you will be taken to this login page. (The user interface / design may vary depending on your PLDT Home Fibr router)
By default, the username is admin and the password is 1234 or 12345. This password may change if you’ve changed this already before.
Upon logging in it might ask you to change your password since the password 1234 is not secure and can be easily guessed by anyone connected on your router.
You MAY or MAY NOT see this kind of screen but if you do simply enter the old password “1234” and enter your new own password.
If you see this configuration prompt
New Passwords MUST include characters, numbers, and symbols. (Eg. !*TestPassword01) will work but (Eg. TestPassword) will not be accepted as it doesn’t have symbol/s and/or numbers in it.
The same goes with the 2.4G SSID1 and 5GSSID1 Passwords they must also meet the same requirement.
For the SSID Name, it represents the “Wifi Name” on your router so what you input to the SSID Name will be basically your Wifi Name.
Once configuring everything hit the apply button and you’ll be able to login.
If you didn’t see that configuration prompt
You can simply go ahead and continue along in this tutorial.
You will now be taken to this page and dashboard.
Click on the Network -> Advanced and you will be shown with options to select which wifi ssid number you would like to change/configure.
To change the password, be sure to have the Security Mode under the Security Policy set to WPA/WPA2/WPAPSKWPA2PSK any of the security modes.
Then change the WPA Algorithms to TKIPAES and enter the wifi password you want to use under the Passphrase.
Once done changing the wifi password, go ahead and don’t forget to apply the changes by hitting the Apply button.
Depending on your router, but on this particular router you can have up to 4 (Four) 2.4 Ghz Wifi SSIDs you can navigate through changing the SSID Choice.
And to change the PLDT HOME FIBR wifi password for the 5Ghz frequency, just simply go to the 5G Advanced tab and you will be shown with the similar configuration page.
Once done you can now reconnect to your wifi ssid and see if the passwords have been changed successfully.
