How To Change My WiFi Password On Actiontec WCB3000N

Welcome to the step-by-step guide that will show you how to effortlessly change the WiFi password of your Actiontec WCB3000N Extender. This device allows you to potentiate the wireless signal of your current router by receiving it and then recasting it, making it reach areas of your home or office that the router alone would not be able to.

A few steps for changing the WiFi password on FiOS Actiontec WCB3000N

For changing the wireless settings you have two options; you can either use WPS I.E. WiFi Protected setup or access the visual interface of the device through a web browser.

Through WPS

This option allows you to sync the wireless settings from your router to your FIOS Extender’s settings.

  1. On the top or right-hand panel of the device there’s a button labeled as WPS; press it for eight seconds or more and a red circle around the button will start blinking.
  2. In a period of two minutes, press the WPS button of the router you use at home.
  3. When the red circle mentioned in the first step stops blinking, the Extender’s and the router’s settings will be equal.

Through the Extender’s GUI

You can access the GUI either through the web link or through the IP address; you may find both methods explained below.

1. Weblink
  • With an Ethernet cable, connect a computer to the Extender.
  • Go to the web browser of your choice and input http://wecb-(number of last four digits of the device’s serial number).local in the address bar. The serial number is located on the back panel of the Extender.
2. IP Address
  • Read the specifications of the router you are using and connect to its GUI.
  • Go to the list of devices connected to it and through it find the IP of the connected Extender.
  • With an Ethernet cable, connect a computer to the Extender.
  • Go to a web browser and input the IP address found before.
