Hello ssbell1991,


I am assuming thet you are using a router in your home network... 


In order the change the network password ,


1) You will need to log into your router...


2) You will need to know your router password to log in. The router default password is printed on the label of the Router.


Then follow the video attached to change the network password:




After the network password is changed, you will need to reconfigure your printer wireless connection with this new network password,


Please follow this instruction:
