Change, reset or find your Wi-Fi password

If you want to change the password for connecting devices to your Wi-Fi, reset it back to the default or you’ve just forgotten it, see the options below.

  • I've forgotten my default Wi-Fi password

    You can find your default Wi-Fi password/network security key on the back or underside of all Sky Hubs and on the Connect card or Keep me handy card that came in the Sky Hub packaging.

    Make sure you always enter your password in capital letters. The password doesn't contain any numbers. If you’re asked for a PIN then enter this instead of the password.

    If you've previously changed your password/network security key and can't remember it, follow the steps to change it or reset it back to the default below.

  • How do I change my Wi-Fi password?

    Please note: before you get started, when you change your password, all wireless devices will be immediately disconnected. To reconnect, you'll need to enter your new password into each device. If you reset your router, you’ll lose any personalised router settings.

    Watch our help video or follow the instructions below.

    1. Make sure you're connected to your Sky Broadband home network.
    2. Open a new web browser window.
    3. In the address bar, type 192.168.0.1 and press Enter.

    5. Enter the default router settings username and password in lowercase.

      If these log in details don’t work you’ll need to reset your Sky router. See below for instructions.
    6. Enter the new Network Key (wireless password) you want to use.
    7. Select Apply to save your new settings.

    1. Press and hold Reset for at least five seconds on your Sky Hub.
    2. Your password will now be the default password/network security key that can be found on the back or underside of your Hub.
    3. Reconnect all your wireless devices using the default password.
