      Question Can I change Network Key Password

      Hi Guys

      just wanted an answer to a query that I have. When Sky issue you with a router with the security details for the router, can you change the network key at all, as I feel that the six or seven key that they offer does not seem secure enough.

      I was thinking along the lines of nearly 12 characters or more of numbers,letters and symbols.

      Will this work ? and how do I do it if it does.
