Will the internet company help me change my password?

I have a teen stepson that changed the wifi password to one of our networks. Earlier he’s sister asked for that wifi password to finish an exam, and he didn’t give it to her. If I call my internet company, can they change that password and maybe lock it so that he won’t be able to change it again?

It’s not that hard to change it yourself but yes they can if you’re on the account . But he didn’t call them trust me lol

Reset your box there should be a button u hold on the back of the modem… call your provider and tell tell them u accidentally reset cause u didn’t know what u we’re doing.

They will show u how to log into your modem and change it online. U need your IP address.

Find out the IP address for your router… You can log in and change it yourself then change the password to access your it… If you don’t he’ll always be able to change it… You can call them but you can Google how to change it for your provider… I’m sure that’s what he did…

Simple, don’t give him the password anymore. Can’t change it when he’s a minor, not on the contract, and doesn’t know it!

As the adult of the house, get him to give YOU the password, and then give it to the daughter… And then take his devices as punishment

Take away all his electronics until he gives you the password. But yes you can call your provider and ask them about how to change it back .

Sounds like his dad needs to have a talk with him. Once the password is changed I definitely wouldn’t give it to him. Internet is a privilege as a child not a right. He needs to be respectful to you and his sister.

I have Xfinity and I can just ask my TV remote what the Wi-Fi password is and it tells me

Depending on the service provider, they can lock certain devices from using the WiFi. Like if you give them the serial number to his phone, he can’t use the WiFi at all. I worked for an internet service provider and a lot of people used that feature when they grounded their kids.

Unplug the internet. He’ll give up the password

If you’re paying for it you can fix it
