Hi Mike.

Copy the Access Code / Device Access Code / System Password from the router

Login to 192.168.1.254

Click on Wireless from the Home TabHome Tab.png

Once you get to the Wireless settings, it may require you to put in the access code.

Then you can change the Network Name (SSID) to anything you prefer.

Hello mnjlove66, those were some great instructions provided by paulgarcia. Where you able to change the network name on your residential gateway?

If you encounter any issues with your service or equipment, I recommend checking out our Troubleshoot & Resolve solutions to help diagnose the issue.

Thanks for the advice on this, but my computer will not connect to 192.168.1.254.

 

What now?

Hi @jnfNOLA ,

 

I am sorry for the issues you are having with your U-verse gateway. The gateway's IP address may have changed. To find out what it is here is a great article that goes over finding your IP address. It will display the default gateway, which is the IP address you want to put in your browser. If you are still having problems, try resetting the gateway by pressing and holding the red reset button on the back for at least 10 seconds.

 

Hope this helps.
