I love this my latest new toy but I can't change the network name and password of my MiFi hotspot! I have looked on "how to" web pages and am I get stuck on the part where I am supposed to type my IP address in my browser bar and then log in. Anybody have suggestions?
Making changes to your SSID and password are pretty simple once you sign into your MiFi. Both options can be found under the WiFi Tab. Use the password of "admin" to complete the sign in process.
To change the Wireless Password:
1. Power on the MiFi
2. Establish a wireless connection by typing in the old password
3. Navigate to http://mifi.admin
4. Enter "admin" in the textbox in the upper right hand corner
5. Click the Login button
6. Click the WiFi tab
7. Change your Network Key from the default password to a new password
a. Depending on the security level there will be minimum requirements for password strength
8. Click Apply
Let us know if you need more help.
Network Name = SSID
See steps from above. A SSID is broadcasted to the world and helps you distinguish your MiFi from every other wireless device in range. The SSID can be found under the WiFi tab of the Mifi.admin webpage.
MiFi admin tells me I'm not authorized to view this page. So How can I fix the problem. I want to block other computers that shouldn't be using it.
