Access your router and find the router password tab. Now you can change it.

@ jmizoguchi

understood ...and it doesn't help that the manual is in a pdf of 122 pages ,that's a lot of scrolling and screen jumps to find the right info ... in the gud old days manuals were printed and in the retail box

Is there a way to change the user name from admin to something else? This would make the router more secure. My previous router (Zone Alarm Wireless Router) that died allowed me to do this.

No you can not change the user name, only the password.

Not on consumer router from Netgear.

Only prosafe /prosecute router will allow multiple user for router access
