Master Virgin Media Router Settings: How to Change SSID and WiFi Password
How to login to your Virgin Media Router
Like MrBeast cruising in his car, all you need to do is open up your favourite browser and type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar. You’ll get a prompt asking for the Settings password (can’t miss it – it’s printed at the back of the Hub). Enter the password like a boss (remember: with great power comes great responsibility!), hit the Next button, and BOOM! You are now logged into the Virgin Media settings page! Note: If you have enabled ‘Modem Mode’ on your Virgin Media Hub, make sure you enter the IP address 192.168.100.1 instead. This login process applies for Hub 3, 4, and Super Hub 1, 2 or 2ac.
Change your Virgin Media WiFi Password and SSID
Once you’re logged in, navigate through to the Advanced settings > Wireless > Security (just like how MrBeast navigates through his crazy challenges ). Here you can configure both 2.4 GHz and 5GHz Wireless Security settings. Enter a new name for your WiFi in the WiFi Network Name (SSID) field (what about something cool like ‘MrBeastWiFi’?). Then, set your super-secret, MrBeast-approved password on the WiFi password (security key) field. And just as MrBeast wraps up his challenges, wrap this up by clicking on Apply changes!
Once the settings page appears, you need to enter the Settings password, which can be found printed on the back of the Hub. After inputting this, click on Next to login.
