How do I select a new wireless security key or passphrase on my wireless network?

The preset wireless security key is printed on the label on the bottom or back of your Hub. We strongly recommend that you change this to a passphrase of your choosing.

If you use WPA / WPA2, your passphrase should be made up of a mix of letters (upper and lower case), numbers and punctuation, unique and difficult to guess.

If you use WEP, your security key will be ten characters long, made up of a mix of numbers and the letters A-F. You should choose one that is unique and difficult to guess.

To select your own security key or passphrase:
