Go To Wireless Settings
Change Default SSID
Once you are in the administration console for your wireless router, navigate to the wireless settings so you can view and modify the SSID.

The actual steps may vary by vendor, so refer to your wireless router documentation for detailed steps. The example here is based on a Linksys WRT300N Wireless-N router.

  • Click on Wireless on the top menu bar
  • Click on Basic Wireless Settings on the sub-menu

Here you can see the Network Name, or SSID.
