    In this tutorial, I will teach you how to change PLDT HOME DSL Wifi Name and Password. Below is the step by step guide.

    How to Change PLDT WIFI Name
    1. Get a LAN cable and connect your computer directly to the modem.
    2. Enable your Ethernet connection to keep the net connection alive while you update your wifi settings.
    3. On your browser just type the following
    4. llgin to the PLDT modem admin interface.
    5. The PLDT Login page will load, use the following credentials:
      Username: pldtadmin or adminpldt
      Password: 1234567890

      (Note this may change depending on the default model)
    6. The dashboard will then display the following Next click on “SET-UP”, then “WLAN”, then “BASIC”.


    7. Go to the field that says SSID, and add a ‘name extension’ to your modem. You wont be able to omit the “PLDTHOMEDSL” name however you can do is add some words after to personalize your modem example: PLDT HOMEDSL
    8. Click on “Apply changes”.
    9. Your WLAN will need to restart, wait for a few seconds.


    10. Once restart is done,you will see a notification indicating the following “Attention Config is modified to make it effective forever SAVE”. Simply dismiss this by clicking the "SAVE" button


    11. This will finalize the changes you've made even after turning off the modem the configs will still be there.
    12. To revert the changes you will need to do a hard reset on the modem by pressing the reset button behind the modem
    13. And that's it by this time your PLDT Wifi Name should be changed.
    How to Change PLDT WIFI Password
    1. Go back to SETUP >> WLAN >> SECURITY
    2. When WLAN Security settings are open, go to the field that says ‘pre-shared key’. Delete the existing key and enter your new wifi password.
    3. Click on “Apply Changes”.

    4. After applying changes, WLAN will restart for about 20 seconds.
    5. To save the modifications on the PLDT modem WLAN settings, you need to click the save button on the notification area this can be done simply by clicking "SAVE".
    6. Do a soft reboot to apply the changes to see if the modifications are saved
    7. You can troubleshoot by connecting other devices through wifi on the wifi just note the password you've set
    8. In case you forgot the password you can do a hard reset at the back of the modem this will set the modem to its default firmware setting meaning WIFI name and password are basically on default.
    9. That’s it and you are done!
