How To Change WiFi Network Name (SSID)?

Changing the name of a Wi-Fi network is a simple process that can be useful because it allows you to personalize the network’s name to reflect your own preferences. Changing the name of a wireless network causes any devices linked to it to become disconnected, as well as any other devices that may have joined it in some other way.

How To Change WiFi Network Name (SSID)?

Here’s how to alter the SSID name of your NETGEAR wireless network:

  1. Launch your web browser and enter http://www.routerlogin.net (or just http://routerlogin.net) into the address bar.
  2. Just type in the username and password you used to set up the router’s administrative access.
  3. Admin is the default username and password for NETGEAR routers.
  4. Next, enter your login information and click the login button.
  5. Now that you’ve successfully logged in, you may access the Router’s administrative interface.
  6. Go to the “Wireless” tab.
  7. In the Name (SSID) column, type the new name for the network.
  8. To proceed, select the Apply option.
  9. Your network’s SSID will be renamed.
