Changing the modem login password on iiNet modems

If your modem was purchased elsewhere, please consult your modem's user manual for instructions on how to do this.

Your modem login password is used to log in to the modem's default gateway where you can change your modem settings.

If you share a house or you give your WiFi password to guests, changing your modem password from the default can prevent people connected to your home network from accessing or changing your modem settings.

IMPORTANT: If you use Remote Management on your modem (if available) changing your modem login password is vital to maintain the security of your home network and services.

Forgotten custom modem login passwords

If you've forgotten a custom modem login password, you can factory reset your modem to return it to the default. Please note that a factory reset will remove all custom settings from a modem, including your internet service configuration, Netphone (VoIP) settings and any custom WiFi network names and passwords. You'll need to set up your modem again by following the instructions in its setup guide.
