Ways to set-up a password on a TRENDnet® router
TRENDnet routers are widely used on wireless networks because they are stable and highly secure. You can set-up a wireless Trendnet router on the network and any computer that comes into the range of the wireless router can be the part of the network. Computers can share an Internet connection, data and printers on the network without the limit of wires. A TRENDnet router is a smart device which is capable of running network services like Dyanmic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Domain Name System (DNS) and IP forwarding to serve the network with high security. A firmware program is embedded on the router which saves all the router settings and runs network services. Anyone who can access the firmware page of the router can make changes to its settings.

- Setting a new password
- Things to be kept in mind
Opening up router configuration page
You need to open up the router configuration page to change the password for the router. You can type in the IP address of the router in Internet Explorer and press 'Enter'. Now, you will be prompted to enter the default password. The default user name is 'admin' and password is also 'admin'. Once you enter the user name and the password, you will be granted access to the router configuration page.
Setting a new password
Once the router page is up, you can click on the 'Password' tab on the left side of the screen and you will be prompted to enter the new password. Type in the new password and click on 'Save' button. The router settings will be refreshed and the new password will be saved.
A new password is a gate pass to the router configuration page. So, set a complex password for the router to avoid unauthorized access. You need to remember the new password because next time you want to alter the settings of the router, you will be prompted to enter the password. If you do not remember the password, you can press the 'Reset' button on the router and restore the settings including the password to defaults, but that will erase all the manually configured settings.
