How to change my Wi-Fi settings | Smart Modem

Your Skinny Smart Modem will have arrived with a super-secure and unique wireless network name (SSID) and password (Wi-Fi Key) by default. Some people do like to customize these to make them easier to remember though so here's how you would go about doing that:

  1. Connect a computer/laptop to the LAN port on your modem using an ethernet cable

  2. Open a browser (i.e, Google Chrome, Firefox...)

  3. Enter '192.168.1.254 into the address bar and press 'Enter' on your keyboard



  4. Your browser will show the modem's login page. Use these details to log in:
    • Default username: admin
    • Default password: admin
      Please note that you'll be asked to save a more secured password immediately that requires at least 1 upper case letter, 1 number, 1 special symbol, and 8 characters or more in total.

  5. Proceed to click WLAN from the top menu, then WLAN again from the middle left menu.



  6. Look for the options SSID and WPA Pre-shared Key. These options are your Wi-Fi name and your Wi-Fi password respectively and you can change them into much more suitable details!



  7. Once you're done, remember to select 'Save Settings' to complete this action and you'll need to reconnect to your Wi-Fi connection using the password!
