Login to the administration section of your modem using http://192.168.8.1/ in your browser. The user name and password both should be admin. Once inside you modem click on Settings / WLAN / WLAN Basic Settings. The SSID is you username and WPA-preshared key is your password. Make sure you click the apply button at the bottom right once you have made any changes.

Try this ip address: http://192.168.1.1/ or http://192.168.0.1/ If none of those work take the battery out of the device and the ip address should be written on the the back of the device..

Hey @duchessk8 Try this
Access 192.168.8.1. Go to WLAN Basic Settings - Select SSID (customize your wifi name) then PRE SHARED KEY (your password) Then select APPLY.
