    Hi Chris,
    I’m having trouble with my router. I go through all the steps and have done this many times before, but now when it gets to the last page where the loading bar is, it freezes. after awhile it will time me out. Any suggestions?

    Hello! I’m SO confused. Do I need the internet in the first place to set it up? My router is on but I just don’t know the password?

    Hi! I followed your instructions and everything was all good. However, when I’m done with all the steps. Nothing seems to have changed. I still can’t change my network name and I can’t seem to access internet without an Ethernet cord attached to my laptop. Am I doing this wrong or am I missing something?

      I just set up another network a few days ago using another IPtime wireless router. All routers basically have the exact same steps I outlined as I bought 3 different ones. I recommend to upgrade your firmware which worked for me when I had problems and also resetting your router. Push and hold the router with a Pen for 30 seconds and try the steps again

    I need to hide my wi fi network. So that no one can see the network whenever they open wi fi.

    Hello, I followed all the steps and it worked but only for a few minutes.. Now the wifi just dissappered and I don’t know what to do and the Ethernet cord isn’t helping neither:((

      Hi Mia

      You might have to reset it again and try again. If you got it to work and it’s not working again even with a ETHERNET then there might be something wrong with the MODEM and not the router. You can call your internet provider as I also had constant drops in the past and the technician told me I had a faulty wire in my MODEM.

    Hello sir… How can I change the password “admin”? Thanks

    • chris says:

      Default password is admin when you are first setting it up. Afterwards you can change the password to whatever you like after following the instructions on page. For your reference it’s Picture #11

    This worked beautifully but I have one question. It was iptime5g, I went in and changed the name to “haha”. Now on my wifi list it has both. Iptime5g (no password needed) and haha (with password). Thanks for all the help!

    • chris says:

      Hey Ron
      By any chance are you using a wifi extender? That happens to me when I use an WiFi extender but never happened to me when I set up a normal wifi connection

  11. Ama says:

    A million thank yous! I got home from vacation and couldn’t find my iptime info. Looked everywhere but aaahhh, was able to reset my modem with this tutorial.

    i have a service provider which have given me some accounts to access internet through a satellite based system. now that setup is connected to iptime router wifi. so when i am logging into any one account through the router the wifi becomes open and any other device can be easily connected to it without password into the same account.

    i want to configure router such that after logging in into the service providers account wifi network to be a closed one.and also to be able to access into more than 2 service provider accounts through one router at a time.

    Hi chris, how long does the loading bar normally takes to load?

  15. Mark says:

    Hi, I have a fiber optic cable connected to a kt giga router with 4 ports and basically, I’d tried to connect my laptop through LAN by a patch cord but I can’t connect to the internet. The fiber line seems online. Do I need to buy a iptime wireless router? and what model should you recommend for 4-5 users.
