How to Change a Roadrunner Wi-Fi Router Password

The security password on a Wi-Fi wireless network is not set by your operating system. Instead, the password is specified by your router. If you want to change the password on a wireless router that was given to you when you signed up for Roadrunner Internet service, you will need to access your router's configuration utility and manually make the changes yourself. This requires the use of a web browser.
