You will need your Wi-Fi network name and password to connect a device such as a computer, smartphone, or tablet to your wireless network. This information helps to keep your network safe from intruders, so be sure to use a name and password that are not easy for someone to guess. It is not a good idea to use your last name or your street name for a network name.
Note: The default SSID or ESSID (Extended Service Set Identifier) and password should be printed on a sticker on the bottom of your router. Unless you have already changed the SSID/ESSID and password, the settings on the sticker must match those you have entered in your device for Wi-Fi access.
