changing wifi user name and password

Hi

I have just joined Optus after 30 years with Telstra and have had great service so far. I have a new Sagemcom modem and thought I had done everything right to set it up, and internet is certainly working!

I want to change the wifi name and password and have followed the online instruction to go to https://192.168.1.254 to be connected to my modem settings, but it does not connect. I have tried both Safari and Google Chrome and no joy....

Any thoughts?

Rick

Re: changing wifi user name and password

@Rickwang  are you sure the ip address is correct?

Is there any documentation with the modem and have a look under the bottom of the modem there often is a sticker with the default ip address, user name and password.

Also you could try http:// instead of  https://

I am an Optus user.

Re: changing wifi user name and password

Thanks for your prompt replies.

I had got a little confused with all the initial stuff required.

The card that came with the modem gave a network name of Optus_35etc and a long password of letters.

The IP address you gave is the correct one and I was able to log in to that using the instructions and the generic user name of optus and change my password but I haven't found how to change the network name so far.

The IP address I found on line referred to a different type of modem but that wasn't obvious until I went back and read the instructions in more detail - d'oh!

When i fist set everything up I got an SMS stating the nbn broadband is active and my user name is lastnamefirstname but I am not sure where I use that and what the password is.......

So my main question is where do I find the place to change the network name???

Sorry for being slow...
