Secure your modem with a password
After setting up your modem, you should set an administrator password for it. A strong password helps prevent unauthorized access to your modem.
To set your admin password:
- In your web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar; press Enter.
- Click the Home Network Modem tab.
- Click Admin Password.
- Check off Enable.
- Think of a password and enter it in the Enter New Password and Confirm New Password boxes.
- You may enter a hint in the Enter Your Hint box, if you choose.
- Click Save.
Tip: Your password is used to access your modem and change your home network settings. Keep a copy of your modem password in a safe place.
