In the current era that we’re in, constantly changing your home or business PLDT WiFi password is very crucial. Why? Well, there are a couple of reasons why.
Changing your PLDT WiFi password, especially from the default one that came out of the box, ensures that your password cannot be easily guessed via patterns and whatnot.
In addition, changing the default password allows you to input a new combination that’s easier to remember and harder to crack. If you’re deciding what password to choose, experts suggest to use at least three random words, numbers, and symbols.
Other than default password users, having a new one also works for old modems, especially those who already have tons of devices connected to them. Already hate that neighbor? Kick them out of your WiFi.
Whatever your reason may be, we’ll show you how you can change the WiFi password on your PLDT modem.

Why can’t I access my PLDT WiFi admin page?
Even with the right URL, chances are, you can’t connect to your WiFi admin page because you are not connected to the router in the first place. Make sure that you do and that you’re not connected to an external modem or WiFi extender.
Why can’t I sign in to my PLDT WiFi modem’s admin settings?

Before you can sign in to the WiFi with a new password, make sure you select “Forget This Network” on your device’s WiFi settings, so you can input the new PLDT WiFi password.
Why am I getting a “Your connection is not private” warning?
Don’t be alarmed as this should be normal. At the bottom corner, tap “Advanced” then click “Proceed to 192.168.1.1 (unsafe).” It should land you directly to the admin page.
Why 192.168.1.1 doesn’t work?
If you can’t access your PLDT WiFi admin’s page using the standard 192.168.1.1 URL, chances are, your network may have a different private IP address. To check, you can follow the steps below:
Windows: Open the Windows search bar and look for “cmd” > In the command line type “ipconfig”. Your IP address should be in the “Default Gateway”. Normally, it should be 192.168.X.X.
