Changing Wifi password on Tp link is a natural process, but you need to be aware of how to do the process right. Do you own a router and want to know how to change your wifi password the easy way?

Open a browser, type 192.168.0.1 in the browser bar, type enter, write the username and password (usually admin for both in the Tp Link case) and press Sign in.

Be on the same network as the router

Usually, routers come with default local IP of 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 set as the main gateway. I did see exceptions to this, something of 192.168.1.254, but as I said, exceptions.

TP Links are most of the times with 0.1 at the end.

To see the details of your connection, right-click on the icon in the taskbar and press Open Network & Internet settings (for Windows 10).

In the case you don't like the IP that the router gives you by default, try applying a manual IP address to the PC / device. This technique is useful if you want to connect on a device that is in another IP class.

The DVR (digital video recorder) is in the 192.168.1.1 class; then you change your manual IP address of the PC to be the same class as the DVR. tp link 20
