From here, you can adjust your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password for your 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi frequencies*.
Passwords must be at least 8 characters long.
We do not recommend changing any other settings.
* The primary differences between the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz wireless frequencies are range and bandwidth. 5GHz provides faster data rates at a shorter distance. 2.4GHz offers coverage for farther distances, but may perform at slower speeds.
