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