How to change Router Name?

Please can someone explain how to change the name of my Router? I saw on a TV programme recently that it is safer to change your numbers on the router to a name. Thanks in advance.

Re: How to change Router Name?

I presume you are referring to the SSID, the name you see when you look for a Wi-Fi connection from your laptop or whatever.   This can be changed in the Hub's management.

Enter  192.168.0.1  in the URL of your browser to access the Hub.  Then sign in using the User ID and Password on the label at the base of the Hub.   Then go to the Wi-Fi page and change the SSID to one of your choice and save it.  Do this for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz .  So for example you could set up Smilergirl-2 and Smilergirl-5 ... it's worth adding the 2 and 5 so that you know which channel you are trying to connect to.

You must be using a browser to see this website.  So simply type 192.168.0.1 in the search box.
