How to Change Your Network SSID on Your Linksys WRT120N Wireless Router


The Linksys WRT120N is a midrange-class router designed for homes and small businesses. When a wireless network advertises itself to the area, it is broadcasting its Service Set Identifier (SSID). The SSID is the wireless network name that appears to wireless devices when they are trying to connect to a wireless hot spot. Linksys routers default to "linksys" as the SSID. You can change the SSID by logging into the router's Web-based interface.

  • Open a Web browser.

  • Type "" into the address bar, then press "Enter."

  • Leave the username blank and type "admin" for the password.

  • Click the "Wireless" link.

  • Change the text in the "Network Name" field to the new network SSID.

  • Click the "Apply" button.

Tips & Warnings

  • Any currently connected wireless clients must disconnect, then reconnect with the new SSID.
