Change your Wi-Fi name and password

No ratings

Your wireless network name (or 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.

 

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

 

Choose your router from the list below to get started. If your router is from a different supplier, you'll need to contact them for help.

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).
