We just signed up to Vodafone Naked Broadband and have our internet running now at home. I now want to change the Wireless name and Password on my HUAWEI modem? Thoughts?

Hi Chunksieboy

 

Firstly welcome to the Community! Glad to have you here.

 

Changing your Modem name and password is as easy as opening your browser, go to

192.168.1.1

username: vodafone

password: vodafone

 

On that first screen you will see "SSID" and "WPA" these are your WiFi network's name - as it appears to device trying to connect; and your WiFi password. So, you can change them to whatever you like but naturally remember to change that in all your devices as well.

 

Please be careful NOT to change your ADSL username and password as they are your Vodafone account name and password to connect to the network, change those on your modem and you'll lose your connection.

 

These can be reset through My Vodafone but you need to change it there first.

 

Hope that helps.

As Mike said, 192.168.1.1, Username and password is vodafone

Click, Home network.

Alter WLAN settings to your liking.

I had trouble too. The address you need to paste into your browser window is http://192.168.1.1/

The forward slash is missing from the tech instructions. Then choose WLAN from the home screen

Good luck

Hi

 

Thanks for the response. I did use the link and it lead me to an Authentication Required page with the following message:

 

"The server http://192.168.1.1:80 requires a username and password. The server says: WirelessADSL2 + Router. " Then there are these boxes for User Name and Password. I used 'vodafone' for both but nothing has happened.

 

Thanks for your time.
