How to Change STC WiFi Password in 2023?

Changing your STC WiFi password can be confusing due to the various device options available.

Whether you’re using STC fiber router or STC 5G router, changing your WiFi password helps you maintain the security of your connection by preventing unauthorized access.

It might be a long process to update usernames and passwords for routers, modems, and STC WiFi, especially compared to Zain or Mobily devices.

But don’t worry, I’ve put together a handy guide to assist you in navigating the sometimes confusing process of changing your STC WiFi password, no matter what device you have.

Step 1: Know The Model Of The Device

The first thing you need to do when changing your STC WiFi password is to find out your device’s model.

Usually, you can locate this information on a label at the back of your modem or router.

1. For Huawei Modems and Routers – DSL, Fiber-Optic, 5G, and Home Broadband

For most STC users, their devices are made by Huawei, including models like:

  • HG658B DSL Modem
  • HG8245Q FTTH Fiber Optic Modem
  • HG658v2 DSL Modem
  • HG658v2 VDSL 102 V2 Fiber Optic Home Broadband Modem
  • HG8245T Modem
  • E5577 MBB Pocket MyFi Device

2. For Alcatel-Lucent STC Modems

STC also offers Alcatel DSL modems like:

  • G-240W-B ONT (Optical Network Terminal)
  • I-240W-A ONT

Step 2: Find Your Router’s IP Address

Now that you’ve identified your device, it’s time to change the WiFi password.

Start by discovering your router’s IP address, which is like its internet “home address.”

Typically, this address is either or for most STC routers.

You can find this information on a label on your router, by searching online for your specific router model, or in the user manual.

Step 3: Access the Admin Page

Grab a device connected to the same network as your router, such as a computer or smartphone.

Open a web browser and type in your router’s IP address in the address bar. Press Enter.

You’ll be taken to the login page for your router’s admin panel.

Step 4: Log in to the Admin Panel

To enter the admin panel, you’ll need a username and password.

If you haven’t changed them, they might still be the default ones.

You can typically find the default username and password on the label of your router or in the user manual.

Here are some examples:

Dlink DSL G2452GE192.168.1.1admincheck back label
HG658b VDSL 102192.168.1.1adminadmin

Enter the username and password and click “Log In”.

Step 5: Navigate to Wireless Settings

Once you’ve logged in, look for tabs labeled “Wireless” or “WiFi.”

This is where you can change your STC WiFi password settings.

Inside the wireless settings, search for a section named “Security,” “Wireless Security,” or “Password.”

This is where you’ll see the option to change your current WiFi password.

If there are multiple options, select the one that matches your network’s security type, like “WPA2-PSK” or “WPA3.”

Step 6: Change Your WiFi Password

Within the password settings, you’ll find a field with names like “Passphrase,” “Pre-shared Key,” or “Network Key.”

This is where your current WiFi password is stored.

Delete the old one and enter a new, strong password that’s at least 8 characters long, and includes letters, numbers, and symbols.

A unique password adds to your online security.

Step 7: Save Your New Password

After entering the new WiFi password, locate the “Save,” “Apply,” or “Submit” button and click on it.

Your router might need to restart to apply the new settings, which could take a few minutes.

Step 8: Reconnect Your Devices

Once your router has finished restarting, you’ll need to reconnect all your devices using the new password.

Be sure to update the password on your mobile phones, laptops, and other gadgets for a seamless connection.

In a Nutshell

Changing your STC WiFi password is easy if you follow this step-by-step guide.

Maintaining a strong and unique password is important for online security.

So, use strong passwords to stay safe online.
