  3. Login to the Router: You will be prompted to enter a username and password. Use the default login credentials, which are usually:

    If you've changed the login credentials before and can't remember them, you may need to reset the router to factory settings.

  4. Navigate to Wireless Settings: Once logged in, look for a section related to wireless settings. The exact location may vary based on the router model and firmware version. You might find it under a menu like "Wireless," "Wireless Settings," or "Wireless Setup."
