How to change Jio fiber router login password (Configuring the Network)

User Name : admin
Password : Jiocentrum
Step 2: Once logged in, on the left panel, select the option Network and navigate to the option Wireless. On the right side, select the tab Profiles and Right-click (or long-press) on your Wifi network name.
Step 3: Now, under the Wireless Profiles Configurations screen update your password and save the settings. What the fields in the configuration indicate are as follows:
SSID: Service Set Identifier or SSID is the name of the network which displays on your device screens. Name anything you like, for example, My Network, My home, Avengers Network etc.
Broadcast SSID: You can set your network hidden by enabling this option. Once you set the toggle ON, the SSID won’t be broadcasted on any device. You will have to manually add the network with the SSID name and password to connect the wifi.

Jio Gigafiber Broadband Service | Quick Review
Since we have installed the Jio Gigafiber, we haven’t faced any connection drops. Hence I can at the point of writing this article assure you that Jio is offering a reliable service. However, the only issue we faced was initially at the time of installation. It took a lot of time to schedule the visit with the concerned team for cabling.
Apart from that, the broadband connection offers an outstanding speed over the wired as well as the wireless network. I have almost got a downloading speed of 93-96 Mbps with a ping varying from 3-5 ms over the wireless connection.
Upload speed sometimes reaches a whopping 90 Mbps or sometimes it drops to 48-63 Mbps. However, over the LAN connection, the download and upload speed reach up to 99 Mbps and 96 Mbps respectively.
The screenshot of the speediest on Fast.com and on ookla Speedtest.net over the Wifi is attached below. As per the other broadband connections in the market, comparatively, the Jio Gigafiber is offering the best deal.
