Hi,

As checking the password written in the modern, it's said that the cusadmin's password is the same with that of Wi-Fi.

I don't know if this is the default setting or if I can change it.

But when I login the admin webpage, I do see an entry to change the cusadmin's password.

I want to know, if I change this cusadmin's password, will the Wi-Fi's password be changed together?

Thanks a lot!

    Changing cusadmin password does NOT change your wifi password. It's can be different.

    if you are using the default wifi of the fizz modem, its the same as the cusadmin's password.

    if you want to use a different password, you can optionally use the guest network.

    with the fizz wifi app, creating a secure and distinct network is easy. 

    1. Log into the Fizz Wi-Fi app using your new cusadmin password. 
    2. Go under My Wi-Fi. 
    3. Select Guest Wi-Fi network. 
    4. Activate/deactivate the guest Wi-Fi network as you please. 

    Or go to http://192.168.0.1/login.htm

    to enable your guest wifi network.

    if you need additional wifi options, you can always use your own router of your choice https://fizz.ca/en/faq/how-can-i-use-my-own-wi-fi-router-fizz

    No worries, changing the cusadmin password on your Fizz modem won't affect your Wi-Fi password. They're separate things. Here's a bit more detail:

    1. Cusadmin Password: This is for accessing the modem's settings. It's like a key to the control room of your modem, where you can change settings, check status, stuff like that.
    2. Wi-Fi Password: This is what you and everyone else uses to connect to your Wi-Fi network. It's like the key to your Wi-Fi clubhouse.

    So, if you change the cusadmin password, it's just changing how you get into the modem's settings. It won't change how people connect to your Wi-Fi. It's actually a good idea to have different passwords for these two things, for security reasons.
