If you are having problems connecting to your wireless network due to incorrect password or wanted to change the Nintendo Switch wifi password but don’t know where to begin, then you are on the right page. In this article, you will learn how to manage your wireless settings as we will provide the detailed steps below. 

Two ways to connect Nintendo Switch to the Internet

In order to enjoy the online features and multiplayer games offered by Nintendo, users must connect their consoles to the internet. A Nintendo Switch console can be either wired directly to the modem using a LAN cable when it’s docked or connected through a wifi. Though wired devices get more stable connection, most users prefer to connect the console wirelessly in order to carry the portable device anywhere they go. 

Verify the Wireless Network Settings on your Router 

Before making any changes on the Internet Settings on your console, ensure that you have already identified the SSID or commonly called as network name and the wireless password needed from your home network. The default network name and password are normally located at the back of the router. For wireless network settings that have already been customized, you need to access the router’s gateway using a web browser to get the information.
