Manage wireless networks (SSIDs) on your modem

In the SSID Setup option of your modem's wireless setup, you can configure your network (SSID) and manage up to four wireless networks.  

Note:  Your modem settings may appear slightly different from the images below, but the steps will be the same.

5.  If given the choice, select 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz in the left sidebar. Some models do not offer this option. Read more about the how to choose between 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency, and learn which modems have this capability.

6.  Select SSID Setup from the menu on the left sidebar.

7.  Select the name of your wireless network (SSID). It's usually the one at the top of the drop-down list.

8.  Select Enable SSID to activate the network, or Disable SSID to deactivate it.


Note: On some models, you will also have the choice to "Broadcast" the network, meaning it's visible to anyone in range, or "Hide" it from public view.

9.  Enter a custom network name if you want (optional). This can make it easier to find your network when connecting devices to WiFi.

10.  Select Apply to save your changes.
