A Wi-Fi compatible computer, smartphone, tablet, smart TV, game console, security camera or other client device can access the Internet wirelessly through the Motorola MG7550 Cable Modem/Router. You can connect up to 253 devices wirelessly; however multiple devices sharing the same bandwidth will slow your network.
You will need to enter one or both of your wireless network names (SSIDs) and passwords into each client device that you want to connect to your network. Typically, you should enter SSIDs and Passwords for both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands into client devices that support both bands. If you haven’t changed the factory settings, you can find these on a label on the bottom of your modem’s stand.
- First locate the wireless settings on your device. Next, select the default Wireless Network Name (SSID) printed on the bottom of modem's stand (or if you have changed this, the name that you have assigned).
- You will be prompted to enter the wireless security key or password for your wireless network. The default Wireless Security Key/Password key is printed is also printed on the bottom of your modem's stand. (Use your own security key if you have changed this). See below for an example:
- Open your device’s browser and go to a website to test your wireless setup. If it works, congratulations!
Note: Your Cable Modem/Router comes from the factory configured for WPA2-PSK wireless security with AES encryption. Some older clients may not support this security mode. If you need to change the security settings please check your modem’s User Manual for instructions on how to do this.
