How do I change the username on my G1100 Quantum Gateway? I've changed the default password, but I cannot find how to change the username for better security. After all, "admin" is an invitation to hacking, like default WiFi SSID's.

There is no provision to change username, just password on that page.

Already read that, but thanks anyway. Still no way to change the default "Admin" username to log into the router. Could only find two instances of "username" in the manual and neither addresses changing it from Admin.

I agree.

There does not appear to be a way to change the admin user name.

All you can change is password.
