Change Password

Hi Experts,

I need to change the wireless passkey for my DraytekTek 2860.

I found the option to change the name but not the password, can someone advice please?

Log in router
Wirelles LAN(2.4HGz) >> Security Settings

And you need to change password for your active SSID (1 - 4 )

You should be able to see it at Security setting under the WLAN main page.

- do avoid use of WEP if you are looking at WEP key

- instead go for minimally WPA2 PSK

I simply change the 'pre-shared key' correct?
JustInCaseCommented:
Yes, but under proper SSID.

apparently that is also what my posting shared stating the "...minimally WPA2 PSK". However, it was not being acknowledged for assistance
JustInCaseCommented:
If you need just WPA2 PSK ...
Just change again under Mode - do not choose mixed (WPA+WPA2)  --- from list choose WPA2/PSK.
