Change P1 WiMAX Desktop Modem and WiFi Default Password for Secure Connection

Comments: 23

P1 is one of the pioneers to launch WiMAX services called P1 4G on the 2.3 GHz band in the world, and the FIRST in Malaysia.

I have been using P1 for a year plus now and I am very satisfy with the speed, package and their services. But initially when you subscribe to this service, all packages will come and use the default setting such as the username and password.

So in order to secure your wifi connection you need to change the default setting to user defined. This is important to prevent someone else to take over your connection.

How to change P1 WiMAX DX230 modem password:

By default, the username and password is:

Username: admin
Password: admin123

STEP 1: Type “http://10.1.1.254″ in your web browser address bar or click here.

STEP 2: Key in the default username and password as above and click “Ok”.

STEP 3: Click on “Personalization” to go to setting page.

STEP 4: At Web Login Account, enter your old password (admin123) and new password.

STEP 5: Click “Apply” and you are done.

This changes only to block other people from gain control over your modem.

After you have changed the modem default password, you need to change P1 WiMAX WiFi WEP key for more secure connection.

By default, for model DX230 the WEP key is printed on the label and attached at the bottom of your modem.

How to change P1 WiMAX DX230 WiFi password:

For DX230 modem, your default “SSID” and “WEP” can be found at the bottom of your modem.

        which one is the modem password or the wifi password?

          Hi,

          Modem password is when you try to log in to this address: http://10.1.1.254
          Wifi password is the one you use to connect your PC to wifi connection.

    i tried to change my wifi password.
    but then i got a message saying
    | the length of value is wrong

    what's wrong?

    • http://www.ahlifikir.com/ Barzrul

      That is because your password either it is too long or too short. Try again, I use 8.
