To access your wireless router management interface, open a new browser tab and navigate to the network address.
You can log into your wireless router’s management interface by opening a browser and inserting the network address. Please be aware that the sticker on the wireless router is misleading in the configuration that we have set. The 192.168.1.1 address on the sticker is actually taken by the main router in your property. Your wireless router will almost certainly have taken an address of 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3 or 192.168.1.4. You may need to try each of these to see which responds. You should see the following menu:
Once the management page opens up you need to insert the user name "admin" and the password that is on the sticker on the reverse of your router.
Changing Your Wireless Name (SSID)
Click the “Wireless” tab to open the setting. Click the 2.4G and then SSID Setup tabs on the left of the screen. Enter the desired SSID (Network Name) you would like to use and click Apply. Finally, click "Security" and select the Use Custom Security Key Option to and enter your own wireless password or key. You will need to repeat this process for the 5Ghz. We would advise using the same SSID for both 2.4 and 5Ghz unless you have a specific reason to separate them - for instance you might want to label the 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks differently to benefit from better speeds or better penetration through walls etc.

Alternatively we have an app available on the Apple Store or Google Play called "NetValet". By installing this app to your mobile device, you will be able to scan the QR code on the sticker on your router and have access to a range of configuration options, including network name and passwords. NetValet currently requires either a Google or Facebook account to operate.
