How To Change My WiFi Password On Netgear R6300v2

In this tutorial, I will show you how in a couple of steps you can easily change the WiFi password of your router Netgear R6300v2. The R6300v2 has Gigabit Ethernet speed, a dual-core 800 MHz processor and is backward compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n devices, offering you great performance and enabling HD streaming throughout your home. It also has two USB ports (a 2.0 and a 3.0) for connecting a printer or hard drive. It automatically works with Beam-forming technology which makes it faster, more reliable and gives it a wider range of WiFi connections.
