A wireless password is important to prevent unwanted wireless connection
to your wireless network. Wireless users should provide the wireless
network password before they can connect. This will give you the ability
to limit the number of wireless connection so the network can operate at
its best. 

This article will walk you through the process of changing the wireless
network password of your EnGenius router. 

This applies to the following model:
EPG600, EPG5000, ESR600, ESR350 and ESR300.


Step 1

We need to login to the setup page of the router. Using a computer that is
connected to the router (wired or wireless), open a web browser. It can be
Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Edge or Internet Explorer. It can
be any browser. 

Find the Address bar. It should look like the one below:


In this example, the IP address is Simply replace it with the
router's IP address. Check the computer's default gateway to
know the router's IP. The default EnGenius router's IP is

After entering the IP, select Router Management:


This time, you will be asked for the username and password. Enter the
username and password setup for the router. The default username is
admin and the default password is

On the Home Page, click on the Cogwheel button (Network Settings)



Step 2

Under Device Management, navigate to
Wireless 2.4 GHz>Security. 


If you want to use WEP, select WEP under Encryption. Select the Default
Key. It can be Key 1, Key 2, Key 3 or Key 4. If the Default Key is set to
Key 1, the value under Encryption Key 1 should be
your network key. Enter your desired key. You can select the Key type
and length. 


EnGenius does not recommend using WEP. A person with a bit of knowledge on
wireless transmission protocols can easily decode the encryption

Select WPA2 with AES. This Encryption type is a lot more
secured. When selecting WPA, enter the password on the Pre-Shared Key


If the router is Dual Band, you need to navigate to Wireless
5GHz>Security to change the wireless network
password for the 5 GHz band. 


Step 3

Hit Apply to Save the Changes.
