TP Link WR840N - Changing your Wifi network name and password

Please note: this guide is for the Archer WR840N hardware version 1,2,3,4,5 router.
The earlier hardware versions of this router have a different colour scheme but the below guide follows the same steps

*We recommend that you do the following with a cable plugged in from one of the LAN ports of the router to your computer to prevent you from being disconnected after changing each wireless setting.

  1. Open your web browser and navigate to or, log in with either:

    A) admin/admin
    B) admin/coolideas1
  2. The following page will appear once you have logged in: Navigate to the “Wireless” option on the left hand menu option

3. Under “Wireless Settings” you will see the “Wireless Network Name” field, change that to what you like the name of your Wifi to be:

4. Next select “Wireless Security” and locate the “Wireless Password” field and change password and click Save:

5. Once saved, you can now connect to your new wireless name (SSID) with your new wireless password!

If you have any trouble with the above, please don't hesitate to contact our support team on 010-593-2665 or
