Was just wondering how I change the name and password for my wifi ? My password is ridiculous and I want something funny
If you are using separate bands you will also need to supply two separate names and passwords for best performance.
Can't seem to change it use the web-interface AND even with the app, I haven't been able to successfully change my password. The name changes, but the internet won't connect. It works with the factory settings (after reset) and when tech support sets it for me (which kind of defeats the purpose).
Also, super disappointed to see there is not option for a Guest network. WTH.
@sasky In the web interface, the option to change the ssid and password must have changed recently, it is grayed out for me. Odd that it won’t change for you in the Ignite Home app.
Yes, the lack of a guest network in the XBx modems is disappointing.

Are you using all 4 Ethernet ports on your cable-modem?
If not, use an Ethernet cable to connect one of the unused LAN ports on the cable-modem to the WAN port of any third-party, WiFi-capable, router, and configure that router to offer a "Sasky-Guest" SSID.
You might be able to find a cheap WiFi-capable router at any Thrift Store, for under $10.
Even if it is a poor performer, your guests should find it sufficient. If they don't, turn it off, to encourage them to limit their stay with you. 🙂
