    how change SSID in Linksys WRT54G2

    Hi,
    I used Cisco/Linksys network magic, software that came with the router, to
    set it up and it issued the name Linsys to the router. This is confusing.
    I want to name it, and have been unable to find a way to change the router's
    name. Also, it set the username and password for router access and I also
    want to change them, but have been unable to find a way to do it. I can
    access the router with 192.168.1.1, but can not find a place to change the
    SSID, User Name, or Password.
    Any help much appriciate.

    Al

    ps: This is a vista home premium system

    http://192.168.1.1 by default, is the LAN IP of Linksys routers web admin.
    Under the wireless section....you'll find where to change the SSID, the type of wireless security, etc. You don't need the software CD that comes with them....all it done via web browser admin.

    I ended up re-running the setup software, and redoing the setup. only
    take a couple of mins. Now you can change any settings
    good luck

    SSID is in the section of Wireless / Wireless Security, usually.
