If you feel like the default name of your router is getting old and that it’s time to take your router into a new era, then this blog is for you! In this article, I walk you through how to change your routers name.
How to change your routers name
Changing your routers name can be a great way to easily identify and remember which device is responsible for directing traffic in your home or office network. The steps below will show you how to change your router’s name.
First, login to your router’s admin page by entering the default IP address or by using the specific URL provided by your manufacturer. Once logged in, click on the “Wizard” tab and then select “Configure Network.” In the “Network Name” box, type in a new name for your router. For example, if you wanted to call your router “Sandy,” enter Sandy into the box and hit submit. You’re now ready to enjoy improved network performance!
What are the rules?
There are a few simple steps to changing the name of your routers.
First, you’ll need to access your routers administration page. This page is typically accessible by clicking on the “admin” icon at the top of your router’s home screen or by entering your router’s IP address in a web browser.
Once you’re on your router’s administration page, click on the “name” tab. Here, you’ll see a list of all the available router names. You can either select one of these names or type in a new name for your router.
When you’ve finished editing your name, click on the “save” button to save it and return to the main interface of your router. Now all you need to do is make sure that your new name is set as the default name for your device. To do this, simply click on the “name” tab again and select “default.” Finally, make sure that any passwords that were associated with your old name are changed before you hit “save.”
What are the consequences?
When you change your router’s name, it will redirect all of your incoming and outgoing traffic through the new name. This means that any devices attached to the router (including the computer you’re using to read this blog post) will be using the new name.
The old router’s IP address will stop working and it can no longer access the Internet. If you have any devices connected to the old router, they’ll need to be disconnected and reconnected to the new router in order for them to continue working.
If you want to keep your existing settings and simply change your router’s name without affecting your online connection, there are a few things you’ll need:
– A new router with a different name from the old one
– A PC with an active cable or DSL connection
– The IP address of the old router
To change your routers’ names: 1. Connect your old router to a power source and connect one end of an Ethernet cable to one of its ports (usually marked WAN or LAN). The other end of the cable should go into a power outlet on your PC. 2. Open a web browser on your PC and type in “router” into the address bar. 3. On the page that appears, click on “Status” at the top right corner of the page. 4. Under “Detailed Status”, locate “Name/MAC Address”
