« Go Back


Where is the wireless name and password located on my SBG6580-2?
The SBG6580-2 default Wi-Fi credentials, wireless name, and security password are listed on a sticker on the back of the device.  The wireless name, also known as SSID (Service Set Identification), is a uniquely identified wireless network.  The wireless password, also known as the wireless security key, encryption key, or passphrase, allows wireless clients, such as smartphones and laptops, to join the secured wireless network.  If the Wi-Fi Name and password are changed, they can be retrieved by logging into the Web Manager of the SBG6580-2.

This document contains the following sections:
