The Ultimate Chronicle on Navigating & Tweaking Zyxel Router Login
Login to Zyxel Router
So, how do you log in to your Zyxel router, you ask? Simple. Pop open that internet browser of yours (Chrome, Firefox, or the Microsoft one that shall not be named) and just as you would type ‘www.facebook.com’, punch in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. Once you hit enter and the page loads, use the default login credentials: Username admin and Password 1234 and hit that Login button. Before you even realize it, you’ve slipped into the Zyxel configuration interface! ✨
Change Zyxel WiFi Password and SSID
Alright, you have infiltrated the Zyxel router interface. Now what? Let’s start with changing the WiFi password, shall we? Still on the 192.168.1.1 page, punch in the default Username: admin and Password: 1234 (again), hit Login. Once logged in, navigate to Network Settings which can be found on the Top-Right Menu. From the dropdown, select Wireless. You’ll find yourself on a new form where you can switch up your Wireless Network Name (SSID – don’t worry, it’s just tech jargon for your wifi network name). Also, under Security Level, pick Security Mode as WPA2-PSK (your wifi’s protection level – WPA2-PSK is more of a shield to your knight) and key in the new WiFi Password. Press Apply. Sit back and relish as your wifi network is now better protected.
Configure 2.4G and 5G Wireless Band Separately
But wait, we got extra sauce for the tech-munchies. If you’re interested in configuring 2.4G and 5G wireless bands separately, we’ve got you covered (Almost like two different radios with different songs – in this case, internet channels!). Uncheck the ‘Keep the same settings for 2.4G and 5G wireless networks’ option under your wireless settings. Now you can tweak them separately. Isn’t that a cool trick up your sleeve?
