    Default Resetting Wifi Network details

    Hi all,

    I just received my wifi modem from LIME and they set the network name to my surname with which i'm not so please; as i'm not so sure i'd like any one who scans for available networks to know that i have wifi.

    I've figured out how to change the network name, but i'm concerned that if i change it, it will disrupt my service.

    Can anyone confirm if it will?

    Changing the name will cause all devices with the saved SSID to not connect. All you need to do is change it then reconnect to the new SSID and you'll be good. Ensure you have the WEP/WPA/WPA2 passphrase beforehand so you don't lock yourself out.
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".
