Hi,

 

I have a R216 Mobile Wi-Fi and want to change the default password, somthing I do for all my internet enabled devices, but do not see the option in the app.

I would also like to change the SSID to somthing I can easily remember but again there appears to be no option to change this

 

Many Thanks

Trevor

After a bit of casting about, I found  http://devices.vodafone.com.au/web/vodafone-r216-windows-10/configuration/connectivity/change-name-a...

I haven't got the device, so can't check it out, but I hope this helps.

Many thanks for your help, it pointed me in the right direction.

I was using the mobile site and needed to switch to the full site to access the options to change settings. Under router/security is where the password is changed and wifi/Security is where the SSDI and Key is changed.

 

Many thanks again

Trevor
