Managing Your SmartRG 808 Wireless Network

Setting up your home network just takes a few steps:

You will need the name and password for your network. These are found on the bottom of your modem (sometimes they are called SSID and Key.)

The Smart RG modem has two wireless bands: 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

(Each band has a separate default name and password.)

2.4GHz band is best for stationary devices that need consistent ongoing connections, for example, a router. It also has the widest range throughout your home.

Some devices give you the option to use a 5GHz band which is a faster speed, but it has a smaller range.

Changing the network name and password

We suggest protecting your home network with a password.

1. Using Chrome or Firefox, open your browser and go to 192.168.0.1/admin
