How do I change my AT&T wifi name and password?

Use our Smart Home Manage app to easily change your password.

  1. Select More. Smartphone users will find More in the main menu icon.

  2. Select Network.

  3. Select the Wi-Fi network name or password to change.

  4. Select the X at the right of the line to clear the existing name or password.

  5. Enter a new Wi-Fi network name or password.

  6. Select Save.

*To change your Wi-Fi Password on NVG please go here

To change your Wi-Fi Password on 2Wire/Pace follow these steps:

 

  1. Start by going to http://192.168.1.254
    Note: you may be required to enter your Device Access Code in order to continue. The default Device Access Code can be found on the side of your gateway (this is not the same as your Wi-Fi password).

  2. Go to Settings > LAN > Wi-Fi

  3. Scroll down to User Network

  4. Save all changes made to your device

When attempting to modify the SSID and PW's for your PACE 5268AC router/modem, all the directions below are correct.  However the first steps to take on your PC is to turn off the wireless network connnection and attach an ethernet cable from your PC to the PACE router/modem.  I used port #1, but I believe any one of the 4 will work.  As the wireless connection between your router and your PC are open network access the rotuter will not bring up the Admin Page at http://192.168.1.254 when you are connnected via wireless.

 

  1. Start by going to http://192.168.1.254
    Note: you may be required to enter your Device Access Code in order to continue. The default Device Access Code can be found on the side of your gateway (this is not the same as your Wi-Fi password).
  2. Go to Settings > LAN > Wi-Fi
    1. Scroll down to User Network
    2. Changes can be made to your Wi-Fi name under Network Name (SSID)
  • Changes can be made to your password under Wi-Fi Password
  1. Save all changes made to your device

@FTE-Level3   Same for all 2wire/Pace/Arris RGs, earlier ones say wireless stead of Wi-Fi in the LAN.  Then have Network (assuming User). 😉

The model 5268AC model is *dual band*, and the configuration page mentioned above has *two* sections for Wi-Fi settings, one for the 2.4Ghz band and the other for the 5Ghz band.

 

Should I use the same SSID name for each Wi-Fi band or use different names?  If I use the exact same SSID name and password for both, will my laptop and smartphone see just one network, and will they "auto-negotiate" and choose the "best" band (i.e. 5Ghz)?

 

Thanks,

Jack
