    I believe you can log into the router, enter the interface where you configure the former SSID, type the ip address of your network space subnet mask of your network, and enter, now type SSid space the new name or number you want to use and enter, the new one type in will over ride the one the other person entered, you can now log in.

    you can also re configure your router to override the person number by following the below procedure.

    Log into your router, i mean enter inside of your router,
    type in config space t and enter,
    next type enable space secret space your password (i mean password of your router, if you dont have, you can create one).
    next type interface space interface number and enter,
    type ip address space your ip number space subnet mask and enter,
    type ssid space ssid name enter (i mean the name of your ssid),
    type guest-mode and enter
    type authentication space open and enter,
    type infrastructure-ssid and enter
    type no space shut and enter

    please note the what i mean by space is you press the space bar,and not to write space bar.

    With all this, your router will be reconfigure with your name or number and as ovrride the person configuration.

How do i cHange ssid password on my computer

Looks like no one is going to jump on this one... The one reason I'd make the change is to block someone who has access to my network.

I don't advise the inexperienced administrator tackle this task either. However, you asked. The way you worded the question leads me to suspect you need some background too. I'll give you my best answer. Hang on!

A "Router" (wired or wireless) is the device that resides (electronically) between your Internet connected devices/computers/printers and the Internet. It was most likely installed by your Internet Service Provider. Computers (printers and other devices) connected to a router wirelessly (WiFi) need to know the name (SSID) and password (WEP WPA-PSK key) of the local wireless network (router). The name and key (password) is set at/on your router when it is first installed and can be changed by logging into the router as an administrator. Be advised once you change it on the router your computer(s) will be disconnected from the router and will be required to supply the new key to reconnect.

You didn't specify who your Internet Service Provider is or the manufacturer and model of your router so I can't be of specific help on exactly how to log into your router to make the change. You didn't specify your system's OS (Apple, PC Windows X, Lenux, etc). If you do not have the owner manual for your router get it before going any further. Get:
·Manufacturer and model info.
·Download the manual from web.
·Find, on your computer where you access the WiFi. On a PC:
A- "Right" click and "Open Network and Sharing Center" the "network Internet access" icon in the System Tray (Extreme lower right of Start Bar [where clock is at]) Usually the icon looks like a monitor. Once the "Network Sharing Center" is up:
B- Left click "See Full Map"
C- Once the map is displayed poise the mouse over the router's icon and it should give you it's address. It is usually 192.168.x.x (x= variable numbers). Make a note of the address. Accessing the router with a browser (such as I.E., Firefox, or Chrome) will require you know the router's administrator account and password. Enter the address where the " address stuff is usually at.
D- Once you're in the router you can change the key. Make sure you enter it accurately. Once you've saved the changes you will be kicked out of the router.
E- Reconnect your computer with the new key by left click on the icon mentioned in "A" above.

NOTE: It is easy to lock yourself out of your own system. If you're not comfortable doing this call in a professional.

Good Luck

Default admin password

  1. Enter your user name. If you didn't change the user name during installation, enter admin in theUser Name field. [Show Me]

  2. Enter the password you entered during installation and click OK. Additional characters will appear to be inserted as you enter your password. This is designed to hide the number of characters in your password.

    • Note: If you didn't change the default password when you set up your router, it may have been changed to your router's serial number to provide greater security. You can find your router's serial number on a label affixed to the bottom or back of your router.
    • Note: If you can't remember your user name or password, you must reset your Verizon MI424WR router to the default settings and reconfigure your home network.

Securing wireless connection

Hi, I will lend a hand if I can. The fact is, a lot of security advice IS incomprehensible!

I'll try and set it out here, but if anything is not clear, please check back! Also bear with me if I tell you something you already know.

There are four basic steps to set up wireless security, which are the same for most routers:

1) Login to your router
2) Change the router login password/username
3) Change the network name, or SSID
4) Enable WPA encryption

This is enough to secure the connection, though you can take further steps when you are up and running.

Here are the details:

1) Login to your router.
Type the router address in the address bar of a web browser. For this router, it is

You should see a popup box. If you have not changed the password, enter username: admin and password: admin

This should bring up the configuration screen/user interface.

2) Change the router password.
If you haven’t set a password, this is a good place to start. Go to LAN setting >Password. Set new admin and username passwords and click 'Apply'.

Ensure this password is not easy to guess, or someone could log into your router and view/change all your settings. It's also a good idea to write this info on a label and stick it on your router.

3) Change the SSID (router name):
Go to Wireless > Basic, and change the SSID from ‘default’ to anything you like –as long as you can remember it. It is case sensitive, and you can usually use up to 32 letters – but don’t use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘Apply’ when finished.

4) Enable encryption
Go to Wireless > Authentication.. Select WPA-PSK - strictly speaking the correct option depends on your wireless adapter. However, this is usually a good choice to start off. You might also need to select Shared Key on this menu option – I’m not familiar with this router so bear with me.

You may see one or more new options pop up. I would start by leaving most settings at the default. However, under Pre-Shared Key/Network Key you should enter a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers ( eg - 456HappynEWYeartoyou8899). It is case sensitive.

Note down the network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. (The network key may also be called a WPA shared key, PSK, pre-shared key, passphrase, authentication key). Click ‘Apply’ when finished.

That's it, you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.

When you next connect wirelessly, you'll see the router with its new name in your 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the network key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.

Hope this helps, but if it is not clear or doesn't work, please come back to Fixya. Good luck...

ah i see, i think the name change wont matter, i'ts the ip address of the router you need to change to the next number from the other router or the last number as long as it's in the same series as all your ip addresses.

You will have to get into the second router separately to change its gateway address then link it in the system, but you will have to turn off DHCP in the router so it cannot give out ip address as only one router can do that, which is what i meant in the first solution posting.
