The first thing you should do once you’re on the admin page is change your default router password to a new, secure password as most default passwords are the same. Leaving the default password makes your home network vulnerable to hackers.

Changing SSID

From the admin page, you can also change the SSID (WiFi network name). It’s a good idea to change the name to something easily recognizable that will stand out from other networks. This is especially helpful if your neighbors have the same ISP default network names.

Furthermore, if you frequently have guests at your house, it’s a good idea to set up a separate guest SSID.
