    Password not working?

    If the password doesn't work, you may need to factory reset your router.

    To factory reset the router, find a pin and push it into the 'Reset' hole on the back of the router for 10 seconds. After a few minutes when your router has turned back on, go back to Step 1.

  4. Select Network Settings at the bottom of the page and then select Wireless.

  6. Next, scroll down and find the Security Level section.

    Make sure it's set to More Secure (the green setting) and also make sure the Security Mode is set to WPA2-PSK.

    A setting called Generate password automatically may be ticked - Unchecked untick this, and then type in a password in the password box. This password needs to be at least 8 characters long.
