Changing the factory default network name and password is useful for ease of use and security purposes. Below are basic instructions for changing your SSID or Password, but it is advisable to check your routers instruction manual or your router manufacturers support page for detailed instructions.


In order to change the network name and password you will need a device that is connected to the router via WiFi or an Ethernet cable. You will then need to log in to the router using the local IP address typically listed on the router’s label. 

  1. Use a web browser or mobile app to log into your router. 
  2. Navigate to your router’s wireless or security page.
  3. Change the SSID from the default to something you would like broadcast. 
  4. Be sure to enter in a strong password for security. 

For further information on how to change your WiFi network name and password on your router, please check the manual for your router or your router manufacturer’s support page.
