This is easy:

Understand that you will need two passwords. The first will be the password to be able to access your router through a computer that is hooked up to it. the second password will be the one you will want to create for the wifi access by other wireless devices.

Google the make and model of your router and navigate to the manufacturer's website. At that point you will download or look at the manual for that router, and in the manual should be specific instructions on how to access the router, and then change the wireless password.

From a computer connected to the router either wirelessly or by an Ethernet cable, you will need to open an Internet browser and then you wil type in the router's IP address into the address bar of your browser. Typically it is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
From this point you should see the username and password page for access to the router.
Most manufacturers of routers set the default username to be "admin" and the password is usually the word "password" or it is simply to leave the password section blank. If you already have a user name and password for the router, you will need that for access. If after trying to find access to the router, you are unable to either use the manufacturers default or you cannot remember the username and password you had previously assigned, then you can reset the router two factory condition by pressing a small recessed button present somewhere on the router. At that point the router will be set to its original default settings, and the manufacturer's manual should be able to tell you how to gain access with its default username and password.

My Kobo Arc 32, asked for a password, when I tried to try the WiFi. I don't remember setting a password. So, now it's asking for an guest password.


It is not the Kobo that has set the password, rather the router for the wifi that you are trying to connect to. You just need to know the password for the router to let you connect. If a router has no wifi password, it is considered unsecured and ANYONE can access it. So most all routers use password protection. If it is YOUR wifi system, and you no longer know the password, you can change it if you access the router setup for wireless and change the password. Be advised, however, that all devices that connect to the wifi will need to change their passwords as well or not be connected. If it is not your wifi you are trying to connect to, then you need to obtain the wifi password from that wifi system's administrator.

How can i change password on my wifi so nobody else can use it anymore


Most wifi units have an IP address you can use with your web browser to change the wifi password and various other settings.
Look online for a manual for your specific router. Get the IP address for it and put it in the address bar and turn on password and even make your own password.

How to find ur wifi password


The D-link support desk can help with the default password to the unit, but can not tell you what your wifi password is. If you have a device on wireless you can go to the wifi adapter and usually check a box that says "show password in text". If that is not an option, log into the D-link and change the wifi password to something you know and can remember.

Note: changing the wifi password will break the wireless connection to any existing thing that uses wifi. You will have to go to each device and change them to the new password.
