    Hi!

    I just moved into a flat, where a Wifi name has been changed already from the original. Is it possible to change the name again? And if yes, how? :)

    Thanks!

    On your router? You can change it as often as you like.

    On PC. Now the Wifi name is GIGI, but I would like to change it for something else. How is that possible?

    Access the router settings. You should have an IP address of your router plus login details. From there you can change anything you want - name / password / frequency / encryption / MAC filtering etc.

    That is called the SSID name you want to change. The SSID is the name of the router that you can change in your router settings.

    You should be able to type in

    192.168.1.254

    into your internet browser's URL bar and it should take you to your network and router settings. From there, you should be able to figure it out

    Actually the address you type in is going to vary by make (the manufacturer) of your router. You may need to do some basic google search like “how to log into a <manufacture name here> router to get some different options and instructions.

    IPs to try are 10.0.0.1, 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.2.1, 192.168.1.254, etc.

    A simple way how to find that IP address is to Option+click your WiFi indicator and it should give you more details, including the router's IP.
