Changing your Wi-Fi network password can be useful to prevent others from using your Internet without your authorization. In order to change the password, you need to get into the settings menu of your router and then, change the password. While the process of changing passwords in the majority of routers is same, but the only router where things get different is on the AirPort router. Let us find out as to why changing password on AirPort router is a different process.
On AirPort, Apple’s router, the process is a bit different from the other routers on the market. Apple has always kept different in its devices and AirPort Time Capsule is no different. The configuration process on the Apple router is done using a router-specific application, which is available for macOS or iOS.
