On a computer that’s wired or wireless to the modem, open a web browser and type on the address bar and press enter.


Use the following steps to customize your SSID and/or your Key/Passphrase:

  1. Verify that the radio button On is selected.
  2. Enter a new name for your SSID if you wish, or note down the one entered. It is the name for the wireless network you will join with wireless devices.
  3. Select Use Custom Security/KeyPassphrase and enter at least 8 characters composed of a combination of small and/or capital letters and numbers. Take note of the preferred Passphrase since it is Key sensitive, it has to be typed as it appears (Uppercase and Lowercase matters)
  4. Click the Apply button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

Note: After saving the changes SSID, Passphrase or both, all wirelessly connected devices will be disconnected. Just check for the available wireless network connection and look for the  New/Existing wireless network you want to join and type in the Passphrase you made (refer to step 3).
