D-Link routers are networking devices found on small to large networks. D-Link routers are used to link multiple systems either through hardwired connections or using wireless technology. To configure the D-Link router, you need an administrator username and password. If you forget or lose that particular password, you need to reset the router and use the default factory settings. Once you reset the D-Link router password, you can change the router's admin password very easily.
Reasons for changing the password
When you set-up a D-Link router on your home network, protecting the network is very important. Unwanted visitors or users on your home network can put your protection at risk, leaving you vulnerable to malicious programs and potentially locking you out of your own network. Since default passwords for D-Link routers are easy to come by, users are advised to replace the admin password and block unauthorized users from changing the settings of the router.
To change the default password of your D-Link router, open the browser, type the address of the router into the address bar and open it. Then, enter the account name and password to launch the router set-up utility. From there, locate the window that shows Change Password. Enter the old password in the Change Password window and enter the new password. Confirm the password change on the page of the router and switch off the router.
