Hi

 

Log into the Netgear router

Select Wireless setup

Change name (SSID)

Apply

 

go to maintenance

Set password

Type in old password

Type in new password twice

Re: how do i rename the router and change password?

the login details for your router (assuming you have the same netgear as me)

 

address:   192.168.0.1

user: admin

Pass: (your virgin media pass)

 

On the left bar click "Wireless settings" and change the SSID (Broadcasting name). You can also change the wireless encryption standard and passphrase/key here, but make sure you write it down safely if you are changing it via your wireless connection :smileyvery-happy:

 

Good luck

on the address bar go to 192.168.0.1

if this doesnt work try www.routerlogin.net

 

username is either virgin or admin

password is password (standard in routers unless changed by user)

 

click wireless settings on ssid type a name for your router.

on security options click wpa psk (wifi protected access pre shared key)

underneath a security encryption box will appear type in an 8 character password

 

and apply at the bottom of the page.

 

some of the new netgear dg834gv5 routers sometimes need a reset before setting up the wireless should this fail and you need to reset the router id call virgin!!

 

peace
