The Link creates two separate Wi-Fi networks -- a 2.4 GHz network and a 5 GHz network -- and the default password is based on the Link's serial number, as described in the Quick Start Guide in this article.
Since the networks are separate, each one can have different network name; for example:
- the 2.4 GHz network could be named "Teradek 2.4G" and the 5 GHz network could be named "Teradek 5G"
- the 2.4 GHz network could be named "VUER Clients" for use by Android and iOS devices running the VUER app, while the 5 GHz network could be named "Serv Pro" for Serv Pro devices to use.
NOTE: if client devices like a Serv Pro or Cube are already connected to the Wi-Fi network of the Link where you're going to change the name, you will lose access to those client devices through the Link until they're updated with the new network name.
Therefore, you may want to log in to each client device through the Link's network before adjusting the password on the Link, and change the configuration on the client device to use the new network name so that the client is already searching for the Link's updated network and will more easily reconnect.
1. Log in to the Link's Web UI as described in this article.
2. Select Network, then Wireless.
3. Options for both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks are shown; click the Configure button specific to 2.4 or 5 GHz network that you wish to change.
4. Under the Interface Configuration section, select General Setup.
5. In the ESSID field, enter the new network name.
5. Leave the Mode set to the default of "Access Point", and the BSSID field at the default empty value. Leave the Hide ESSID field at the default unchecked value, as hiding a network name doesn't provide any true measure of network security.
6. Click the Save button if you are adjusting other settings on the Link and will apply the changes later, or the Save & Apply button to have the new Wi-Fi network name take effect immediately.
