WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
- Your SmartRG modem/router, plugged in and powered on
- A computer, tablet, phone, or other device with internet browsing software installed – Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, are typical examples
- A connection between your device and the SmartRG - We recommend doing this by connecting an Ethernet cord from your device to one of the LAN ports on the back of the SmartRG, but you can also do this using WiFi.
- Open a Web Browser and go to http://192.168.1.1/admin
- You will then be prompted to enter a User Name & Password, by default these are:
- User Name: admin
- Password: admin
- Click "Wireless" which will be the third tab from the top on the left side of the page:
- Click "5 GHz Band" (Unavailable on the SmartRG 505N) OR "2.4 GHz Band" depending on which wireless network you would like to configure.
- Ensure "Enable Wireless" is checked. You may now change your SSID (i.e. your Network name) to anything you like.
- Click the "Security" tab on the left hand side of the screen.
- Ensure that your Network Authentication is set to "Mixed WPA2/WPA-PSK"
- Uncheck "Use base MAC address as WPA/WAPI passphrase".
- You may now change your WPA/WAPI passphrase (i.e. your WiFi password) to your choice.
- Click "Apply/Save" and you've successfully changed your WiFi Network Name and Password!
You can now connect to the new SSID using the password you selected during this setup.
