Your TalkTalk router comes with a default Wi-Fi name, allowing you to connect your devices quickly once everything’s plugged in. However, it’s also possible to change the name to whatever you want – perhaps a previous Wi-Fi name or something easier to remember. Let’s look at how to change your TalkTalk Wi-Fi name.
Log in to your TalkTalk Router
To change the Wi-Fi name on your TalkTalk Wi-Fi hub, you’ll first need to log in to your router. If you’re not familiar with the process, follow this guide for help with logging in to a TalkTalk router.
Change the TalkTalk Wi-Fi name
Once logged in to your router, you can change the TalkTalk Wi-Fi Name by following the steps below.
On the main dashboard page, select See Wi-Fi Settings:
On the My Wi-Fi page, within the Connectivity Status box, click on Change network name.
You can also change the Wi-Fi password within the Connectivity Status box. If you’re interested, our article on how to change the TalkTalk Wi-Fi password will show you how. Otherwise, continue to the next step.
A Want to change Wi-Fi name? window will now appear. When it does, delete the current Wi-Fi name from the box under the heading ‘Provide a new name‘, and enter the name you would like to use.
Once you’re happy with the name you’ve entered into the box, click the Save Wi-Fi name button.
If you change the name while connected to your router via Wi-Fi, you’ll lose your connection when you click the save button. If this happens, re-connect to your new Wi-Fi name and, if needed, refresh the web page. You may also find that you can’t connect to the Wi-Fi or the router’s login page. In these instances, turning your TalkTalk router off and back on usually does the trick.
Once reconnected, the My Wi-Fi page will now display the new Wi-Fi name.
Unless you’ve any further changes to make, you can log out of your router by clicking the Logout icon in the top right of the page.
When the pop-up box appears to check you really want to log out, click Yes.
This will return you to the TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub login page and you can close your web browser to finish.
Last but not least, re-connect any devices that were previously linked to your TalkTalk router via Wi-Fi to the new name. And don’t forget to check your TV, Amazon Echo, and other smart devices!
