4a. Set the name for your network/s
Name (SSID) is the name of your home network. This is the name that you will see when trying to connect to your WiFi network from any mobile, computer or other device in your home.
The default name is fine to use, but if you wish to update your SSID you can change it in the fields highlighted below.
INFO: There are three networks in this router, and they run on different radio frequencies. The 2.4GHz network is better at penetrating walls and objects so will provide a better signal further away. The two 5GHz networks operate on different channels (for even more capacity for your devices) and provide higher speed overall when there are minimal obstacles between you and the router.
TIP: You can name the three networks in the identical fashion if you want. This will mean your mobile devices will seamlessly move from one network to the next if the signal for one gets weaker. So you get the best speed when close to the router, and the best signal when you are in another room!
TIP: If you dont want your neighbours to see your network, you can easily turn off the SSID Broadcast using the checkbox. Just remember that you will need to manually enter the exact name (capitals included) into any device, since your network wont appear in the list when it checks. You can always come back here if you happen to forget your network SSID.
4b Set the password for your network/s
The Password is your password that you use to connect your WiFi network.
If you wish to update your Password you can change it in the fields highlighted.
TIP: If you have chosen to use the same SSID in the previous step, make sure you use the exact same password for the three networks as well. This way your devices will happily connect to any network seamlessly.
