      1. Browse to http://192.168.0.1 using Ethernet
      2. Enter username as 'admin' and password as 'sky' (without quotation marks)
      3. Click on 'Setup' in the top left
      4. Change the name and anything else you want
      5. Click 'Apply' or 'Save' or whatever it says

      Re: Change My SSID

      Changing the SSID name will not make any difference to your security. What you want to change is the Network Key. You will find that on the same page as the SSID. If you have the latest Sky firmware for the Sagem, use WPA2, this is the most secure option available.
