I have mentioned previously that the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi works instantly out of the box. You should, however, perform your initial setup so that you can change the WiFi and admin passwords. Don’t worry, the installation is very simple, and you don’t have to change any settings except the passwords.
In your web browser, go to 192.168.1.1 and enter the password, which is pldthome. Sign in by clicking “Sign In.”
Login to PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi
You’ll be asked to update your password. PLDT’s new admin password and WiFi password are required. Then click “Save.”
Upon disconnecting, try reconnecting again. Enter 192.168.1.1 into your browser and login using your new admin password.
Change your password
There is an optional “Quick Setup” this time, which you can skip but I recommend that you perform this so you can get familiar with the system. You can skip the setup and still use the modem and WiFi.
In the Quick Setup stage, you don’t have to make any changes since you’ve already set a new password. Once you’ve completed the setup, just click “Next”.
PLDT Prepaid WiFi quick setting up
You can immediately access every information and setting in the PLDT Home dashboard after you complete the quick setup. You can even find out more about each setting by clicking the Help link.
Login to the PLDT Wi-Fi administration dashboard
On the dashboard of the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi service, you can accomplish the following actions:
Changing the admin/modem password: Router > Account Management
If you want to change your WLAN password or name, go to Wireless > WiFi Settings
Restart or reboot the router: Router > Router Management
View connected devices by going to Home Network > Device Management > Connected Devices
To block a device, go to Home Network > Device Management > All Connected Devices
If you want to read or send SMS, go to the Local Inbox or SIM Inbox
VPN setup: Router > VPN
Firewall settings: Wireless > Firewall Settings
Any changes you make to your Internet settings could affect your connection. The default settings are fine to leave alone, but you can change the network name (SSID) and WiFi password if you wish. Regardless of the situation, you can easily restore the default settings by resetting the modem.
