Password of the Wi-Fi network

In most cases, we have already protected your Wi-Fi network with a password (or network key). If you see the words Wireless Key or Passphrase on a sticker on the back of the modem, it means that your network is secured per default. If not, choose a password to protect your Wi-Fi network.

How do you change your Wi-Fi password?

If you want, you can change your Wi-Fi password as often as you like.

Your mobile, tablet or computer will no longer be able to connect to your Wi-Fi network once you have changed its password. Therefore, you will have to connect to your Wi-Fi network once again to be able to use it.

  1. Surf to your modem's configuration menu at http://192.168.1.1 with a recent Internet browser.
  2. Enter the user name and password of your modem then click the Login button.
    For the user name, select User in the Username dropdown menu.
    For the password, type the one that you will find on a sticker on the back of the modem, next to the word User Password.

    Enter the 8-character password (User Password) that is found on a sticker on the back of the b-box 3

  3. Click the Wi-Fi network that you are using, e.g. Wireless 2,4 GHz. You arrive on the screen below:

    Configuration screen that allows you to choose the name of your Wi-Fi network

  4. Once the above screen is displayed, perform the following actions:
    • Security: select the option "WPA/WPA2" to protect your Wi-Fi network (we advise you against choosing the option "None", because it means your network will be unsecured).
      NB: if you notice later that your device has issues connecting to your Wi-Fi network, select "WPA2" or "WPA" instead of "WPA/WPA2".
    • Encryption: select the option "AES" if you have chosen the mixed mode WPA/WPA2 or the WPA2 mode, select the option "TKIP" if you have chosen the WPA mode.
    • Passphrase: enter a password consisting of between 8 and 63 characters without spaces, accents or special characters. Remember this password (including the difference between capital letters and small letters) because you will need it to connect to your Wi-Fi network.
    • SSID: while you're at it, take the opportunity to change the name of the network. Choose a new name in the SSID field.
    • Click the button Apply at the bottom of the screen.

Your wireless network is now protected with the password you have chosen. The change is immediate, so you don't have to restart your modem. Connect to your Wi-Fi network with the new password.

Have you forgotten or lost your Wi-Fi password?

If you've not changed your Wi-Fi password, it's indicated on the label on the rear of your modem beside Wireless Key or Passphrase.
If you've changed your Wi-Fi password and you've forgotten it, restore the default settings of the Wi-Fi network. The password indicated on the label on the rear of your modem will then become your Wi-Fi password again.
