    • Answer
    • You can change the name of your wireless network to make it more secure. If you do this, you'll have to change the settings on your computers, mobiles or anything else that's connected to your network.

      To change the name of your wireless network, simply follow the steps below:

       

      1. Open up your internet browser and type the following address into the address bar:http://o2wirelessbox.lan or http://192.168.1.254 


      2. Once the page has loaded, click on "Home Network" on the left hand side of the page. 


      3. Click on the name of your wireless network.  This will be located towards the top of the page.


      4. Click on "Configure" in the top-right of the page. 


      5. Change the network name you something you will remember. 


      6. Once you've changed the network name (SSID), click 'Apply' at the bottom of the page. 


      You've now changed the name of your wireless network.
