The name of your wireless network is also known as the SSID. Before changing your WiFi network name, you will need to connect your computer directly to the Shaw modem with an ethernet cable. If you aren’t sure how to, read Directly Connecting Your Computer and Modembefore choosing your modem from the list below.
SSID stands for Service Set IDentifier and consists of a sequence of characters that uniquely names a wireless local area network (WLAN). SSID is also known as your network name or your wireless network name.
Follow these steps to change the wireless network name of your BlueCurve Gateway. If this is your first time logging in to the modem configuration page, you will be asked to update the password. If you've already logged in previously and updated the password, use that instead.
Enter 10.0.0.1 in your web browser's address bar.
Log in to the modem with the following information:
Click Connection and then WiFi.
Click Edit beside either 2.4GHz or 5GHz to change the name of that network.
If you choose to keep the same name for both networks, only one SSID will show up to your wireless devices. In this case, the advanced WIFi modem will use whichever band is more optimal for your device (2.4GHz or 5GHz).
Enter the new Network Name (SSID) in the field near the top of the page.
