Orange Router Setup Guide: Network Name, WiFi & SSID Settings
Login to Orange Router
Alright, so first things first, we need to access the Orange router’s settings. So grab your handset or computer and follow me closely here. Open a browser of your choice and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Now, enter the default Username and Password (it’s ‘admin’ for both unless your previous-self was messing around and changed it). Hit the Login button and BOOM! You’re in! ️ ️
Don’t know the Username and Password? No worries! It’s actually printed out on a fancy little sticker on the back of your router. Just like the cheat sheet!
Change Orange Wi-Fi Password & Network Name (SSID)
So everything’s cool and we’re in. Now, let’s change your Wi-Fi password and network name. From the Menu, go ahead and click on that Wi-Fi configuration setting. Here, you can type in your new Wi-Fi Network Name in the SSID field, and set your new super-secret Wi-Fi Password in the Key field. All set? Great! Now, just click Apply > OK, and you’re all done. Network security level – UP!
(Oh, and by the way, your network name is what you see when you’re connecting to Wi-Fi. So if you’re tired of seeing ‘Orange1234’ on your device, here’s your shot at changing it to something way cooler. )
