How to Set Password on WI-FI Router Asus Change Default Password and Set Your Own

Today I will answer in detail the frequent question from the newbies, sounding as how to change the password on WI-FI router Asus. Generally, it is not quite clear from this wording what exactly the reader wants to change the default key of WI-FI network or set a password on the router itself to enter the control panel? Let’s discover both ways of password setting on the router to satisfy the whole audience of Asus users.

Network Setup on your Asus Router

To start setting up, enter the IP of the router in the program you use to browse. You can find the IP of your router here. After the authorization request, enter your standard login and password (you can learn it here). The first page that opens in the interface will be the Network Map. Here you will find basic connection data, information about clients and USB-devices connected to Asus. Some of this data you can change right on this page, without going into special sections. For example, the Wi-Fi authorization settings are changed on the System Status tab, under 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

To connect your Asus Wi-Fi router to the Internet, go to Advanced Settings. Internet. It is also useful to find the connection contract that you have concluded with your ISP. It contains all the necessary information. Select the type of connection in the Main settings section. Any Asus model works with all the common technologies that are used to access the Internet. If your ISP uses a non-standard technology, it can be implemented in one of the user firmware, which can be downloaded separately.

Under WAN IP address setup, select to obtain an IP address automatically or enter it manually if your ISP has provided you with a static IP address and it is specified in your contract. In the Account setup section enter your login and password, which are used to connect to the Internet. If your ISP provides additional data for connection (for example, access is made via VPN), specify it in the tab with special requirements.

In the same Internet item on a separate tab you can set up port forwarding. One of the features of Asus Wi-Fi routers is a large list of preinstalled port forwarding programs. You can select a program from the Favourite List item. All this can be done manually, using the Add/Remove button at the bottom of the table.

Important! Port forwarding can be useful when some applications work incorrectly. If there are no problems with the connection, it is not recommended to change these settings.

After debugging the connection, go to the Local Area Network menu. On the LAN IP tab you can change the address of the router. The DHCP-server section allows you to set the protocol for automatically assigning IP-addresses to all devices. For inexperienced users it is advisable to leave the DHCP-server enabled and, if necessary, set the range of addresses to be assigned to network devices. At that the specified range must not include the address of the Wi-Fi router itself, otherwise there may be conflicts if this device and one of the computers will be assigned the same IP.

If the DHCP server is disabled, you need to assign IP addresses manually. To identify network devices in this case uses the MAC-address. You can also set manual addressing only for certain clients by adding them to the bottom table. Such setting is required for the correct operation of some applications that interact with the local network.

How to Connect an Asus Router to a Laptop via WI-FI?

Today we use notebooks more and more often, so the initial setup of Asus router can also be done via WI-FI without connecting to it by cable. To do this, we simply plug the Internet cord into the WAN port on the router, just like when installing from a computer.

After that you can immediately turn on the Asus router and for sure to reset it to the factory settings with the Reset button, in order to configure it from scratch.

Then we turn it upside down and look at the sticker. It shows the name of the network that the router will start relaying by default. And the password to connect to it, if your model requires it. Sometimes WI-FI is not secured from the very beginning and you have to set a password when connecting for the first time.

Accordingly, open the list of WI-FI networks in Windows on the laptop, choose the one that comes from our Asus, and connect to it.

Change of Internet parameters

If after a while you want to change something in your router, the Internet settings are in the section Internet

Here you can find all types of connection to ISP that are currently used in Russia and CIS countries

Automatic IP

The DHCP type, or automatic IP, as it is called here, does not require any user input. All settings are automatically set up on the provider’s side.

If you have a dynamic IP, very often providers bind one specific computer to a user’s personal profile. As a result, you can only access the Internet from it, and it is impossible to connect the router or any other PC. If you have exactly this case, you should tick the Clone MAC-address item in the Asus settings.

Then it will copy the corresponding value from the previously connected PC or laptop, and the ISP equipment will not notice the change to the router.

Static IP

and more rarely, but still using this type, when each subscriber is assigned a certain unchanging static IP. To connect to the Internet in this case you need to enter other values gateway address, IP and DNS servers

Configuration for Beeline (L2TP, PPTP)

Beeline provider uses L2TP or PPTP in its Internet connections. So if you are their subscriber, choose this type on your Asus router.

And then we write the following values:

Setup ASUS router using Mobile | NETVN

Connecting to the Internet from Rostelecom (via PPPoE)

Another popular provider Rostelecom provides services via PPPoE. To connect your Asus router you will need to enter your login (PP username) and password

All of the above data for connecting to servers and authorization must be taken from the contract or ask technical support.

Reset router to default settings

Sooner or later you may encounter a situation where you need to reset the router settings and “roll them back” to the factory settings.

As a rule, this must be done in the following cases:

  • The device stops functioning normally.
  • There is a suspicion that unauthorized persons have gained access to the network or the administrative menu.
  • After making some changes in the settings of the device, it stopped working.
  • The subscriber has changed the provider of Internet services and needs to be reconfigured.
  • Forgot login or password to access the network, set by the user.

There are two ways to reset. Let’s take a closer look at them.

To “reset” the router to factory defaults in this way you need to do the following:

  • Find the button on the device panel, which is used to start the router. It is usually marked “Reset”, “Res” or “WPS.
  • Using a sharpened object, press the power button. It is not possible to do this with your finger, because it is located in the recess.
  • Hold down the key for 10 to 15 seconds and then release it.

As a result of these actions, the device will restart, after which the default settings will take effect again.

Variant 2. The “90 second” method

This is a radical method that does not work on all devices, but you can try it.

To reset the settings, you need to do the following:

  • Hold down the start button for 30 seconds.
  • Then without releasing the button disconnect the device from the power supply and continue to hold it the same amount of time.
  • While still holding the button connect the router to the network again and wait another 30 seconds.

Warning! After this procedure it may be necessary to reflash the device.

Connecting and Quick Setup Asus RT-N12

Connect power to the router. If the power light does not come on, check that the power button on the back of the router is on. Plug the network cable from your ISP or modem into the WAN connector. And in one of the four LAN ports connect the cable that connects the router to the computer. If you do not have a computer or laptop, or no network cable, you can also configure the router via Wi-Fi. But it is better to use a cable, then you can disconnect it from the computer.

If you configure it via Wi-Fi, then simply connect a laptop (or other device, you can configure it from a tablet or phone) to the wireless network, which appears immediately after turning on the router. The network will be called Asus, it will not be protected by a password.

Go to the control panel

Once you have connected everything, open any browser and enter the address Immediately open the settings. If this does not happen, or something went wrong, then look at the instructions to enter the settings. We should see a Quick Setup Wizard. To begin, click the Go To button.

Next, we will be prompted to set a password to protect the router settings. It is imperative that you do that. Specify the password twice, write it down somewhere so you don‘t forget it, and click Next.

On the next page, in the Network name (SSID) field enter the name of your Wi-Fi network, and in the Network Key field set the password to connect to this network. The password is also somewhere to be written down.

The router will think about it and reboot. You will see a Wi-Fi network with the name we just set. Connect to it with the new password that we just set.

Once connected, go back to the settings. You should see a window with the connection information. Click Next.

The router will ask you for a username and password to access the settings (which you set during setup).

If you have everything exactly as I described above, then you are very lucky. This most likely means that your ISP uses the Automatic IP connection technology, and the router has configured everything itself. By the way, the Internet through the router should already work. This completes the configuration of the router.

But, if your connection type is L2TP, PPPoE, or PPTP (providers: Beeline, Dom.router and others). then the configuration will go a little differently. You just need to manually set some parameters.

Initial router setup

We have already connected all the cables, checked the Internet connection and plugged the router in. Now we need to know how to configure the router. And this is done as follows:

  • We look at his back panel the following data: address, username or login, password. The router of any brand has on back a plate with the given information, it is necessary for login in web-interesys of options of the equipment.
  • Run the browser (in this case you can use absolutely any service: Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Explorer, etc.). In the address bar we enter the IP-address of Asus RT-N12, which is written on the back:
  • Next, the service will ask you to fill in the login and password fields. Here we write admin.

IMPORTANT! We’ll write “admin” in the following case if you haven’t changed the factory defaults yet.

  • If you are setting up the equipment for the first time, and you have logged in for the first time, the automatic configuration will start. When setting up automatically all you have to do is to click Next and fill in the necessary data.
  • Then the router will detect the type of Internet connection. If it is successfully detected, enter the password and username you normally use to access the internet.
  • Now you need to enter an individual name of the wireless Wi-Fi network and think up a password for it.

If you can not configure the equipment and establish correct operation using the automatic settings, and the type of connection was not automatically determined, you need to make the settings manually.
