How do I change it. When I go into settings there is a drop down but no option to rename my network from Telus1234

That's a good question. Telus' help pages only have a section on changing the password but not the SSID. I'm guessing you have the Actiontec as the Zyxel just has a text box for the SSID.


On the wireless settings screen, a couple lines below that drop down box, do you see a line labelled "SSID Name"? If yes, put your own SSID in there and click the Apply button at the bottom. That should be all that's needed.

On my Actiontec...

  1. Enter my userid/password on the admin page
  2. click on the wireless setup tab
  3. on the SSID name.... I enter the name I want the SSID to be (eg iLuvTelus)
  4. click Apply


Or my favourite approach... I turn off SSID broadcast to hide my SSID.
