Changing the Wi-Fi name of your Linksys access point is one way of securing your Wi-Fi. To know how, follow the steps below:
NOTE: When configuring the access point to communicate with your router, it is recommended that your access point's Wi-Fi name should be the same as your router.
Access the web-based setup page of the Linksys access point. For instructions, click here.
QUICK TIP: If you are using Mac®, click here.
Enter your Wi-Fi name on the SSID field.
NOTE: Image may vary depending on your access point's version or model number. In this example, Linksys WAP54G v2 is used.
Click Save Settings.
You now have successfully changed the Wi-Fi name of your Linksys access point.
