WiFi Inspector says weak password on router after changing it
« on: October 28, 2017, 11:16:06 AM »
I ran a Wifi scan and it reported that my Router had a weak/default password. I immediately reset the router and entered a new username and password. I ran the WiFi scan again but it still reported a weak/default password. If I try to log in with the default password it fails. The router itself said the new password was strong.

Why is this?

Have you changed the router log in / admin password?   Not network WiFi name/password

Yes. WiFi has remained the same and is not the default.

Restart your router. Unplug, wait a few min. Plug in again and wait for all the lights to start blinking again.

How will that affect the Avast scan?
