In this manual I will explain how to configure the wireless connection on a modem router by means of the IP address 10.0.0.1 . The Wireless configuration is very simple. Just follow the steps below.
First in the address bar of the browser enter the default gateway and then enter, in my case it is 10.0.0.1 Then you will see a box where you will be asked for a username and password:
This box that asks you for a user name and a password when entering 10.0.0.1 can vary its design and color depending on the make and model of your router.
Enter the username and password n the box. In my case it is tricom, So login credentials details are user and password. This varies depending on your service provider, if you do not know that information I recommend calling your ISP service provider or check Default Username and Password. Then click the “LOGIN” button to access the modem.
When you get into the Modem / Router with 10.0.0.1
Then you will see the configuration page of the modem. Click the option on the left that says Wireless. Then click on “Encryption”:
WPA2-PSK is the safest security configuration for Wi-Fi networks, but it is always better to put WPA-PSK because WPA2-PSK has problems. Compatibility with certain devices and gives problems of connection drops or problems to connect.
Then below is the “WPA Passphrase” option that is the place where you must specify the key of your wireless network. After setting your password, click on the button below to the right that says “Apply.” Then click on the option on the left that says Channel and SSID. There you will find the option to change the name of the wireless network:
As in the central part, there are two options, one that says “SSID” which is to configure the name of the Wi-Fi network, and “Channel” which is the transmission channel of the wireless network. After making these changes click on the button below to the right that says “Apply.” That’s so I can save the changes and that’s it. Wi-Fi is already set up.
