The name can be up to 32 characters long and it is case-sensitive. The default SSID is randomly
generated and is on the label on the touer. If you change the name, make sure to write down the new
name and keep it in a safe place.
8. To change the WiFi channel, select a number from the Channel menu.
In some regions, not all channels are available. Do not change the channel unless you experience
interference (shown by lost connections or slow data transfers). If this happens, experiment with different
channels to see which is the best.
When you use multiple access points, it is better if adjacent access points use different channels to
reduce interference.The recommended channel spacing between adjacent access points is four channels

•Is your computer or mobile device trying to connect to your network with its old settings (before you
changed the settings)? If so, update the WiFi network selection in your computer or mobile device
to match the current settings for your network.
