Your wireless network name (SSID) is the name of the Wi-Fi signal being sent out by your router and your wireless password is what you need to type in to access your Wi-Fi. If you'd like to personalise them, here's how.

Any devices connected to your Wi-Fi will disconnect when you change your Wi-Fi network name or password. You'll need to reconnect them afterwards using your new details.

 

Which router do I have?

Your router's make and model is on the sticker on the back of your router. The make comes first (e.g. Huawei) followed by the model (e.g. HG633). Choose your router from the list below for instructions. If your router isn't from TalkTalk, you'll need to contact the manufacturer for help.
