Reasons Why it is Advisable to Change the Wi-Fi Password
Before we start explaining the procedure, let’s first see why we should change the Wi-Fi password at all.
Have you ever had the internet suddenly running much slower than usual? We believe the answer is yes. Several causes can lead to this, but one of the most common reasons, especially when it comes to new router users, is that someone else, without your permission, uses your Internet. These are mostly people from your neighborhood. Maybe this confuses you now because you don’t understand where they got the password for your Wi-Fi.
Remember that routers, even if they are from different manufacturers, can have the same or similar default passwords, so it’s not that difficult for your neighbor to connect to your Wi-Fi. Based on this, we can conclude that one of the main reasons why we have to change the default password is our neighbors.
Unfortunately for you as a user, this is not the only reason we recommend changing your password. The second, even more serious reason why you need to change your Wi-Fi password, are hackers. It doesn’t happen that often, but it can definitely do you a lot of damage. Hackers will not steal your internet, but they will do something much worse – they can get to your bank account or to your personal data that they can later misuse.
The Most Important Information About Your Singtel Router
When talking about changing the Wi-Fi password, we have to mention some of the basic information about the router, because they are necessary to log in, and you have to log in to your router if you want to change the password
The default password, SSID, and IP address are certainly the most important information about the router and you will find them all on the sticker located on the back, bottom, or side of the router. For example, Singtel Aztech routers have their sticker on the side.
It can happen, but very rarely, that the information we mentioned is not on the router and then you have to get to the default IP address as follows:
Type Ipconfig at the command line and press Enter. You will see the number that appears under the default gateway. This number is the default IP address of the router. (The default IP address for Singtel routers is 192.168.1.254).
What is a Router Reset and How to Perform This Procedure?
What if you change the default password and then forget the password you set? This may seem like a big problem, but it is not. There’s a simple solution, and that is the reset procedure.
The reset procedure deletes all router settings (made by the user) and returns them to the default settings.
The reset is done in a very simple way. Here’s how:
Look at the back of the router. Find the reset button on it – you’ll recognize it because it’s in a small hole. Now, get a paper clip, or similar object that has a sharp tip and press the reset button. Hold it for 10-15 seconds and then release it.

My favorite free-time activities are gaming, movie-watching, and cooking. I also enjoy fishing, although I’m not good at it. What I’m good at is annoying David when we are fishing together. Apparently, you’re not supposed to talk or laugh while fishing – it scares the fishes.
