Actiontec R1000H: Find your network name and password

You can find your network name (also known as SSID) and network password (also known as WEP/WPA Encryption keys) printed on the sticker attached to your modem.

The sticker will show:

  • Your Network name (SSID). This usually starts with Bell Aliant or FibreOp followed by 3 digits (Example BellAliant555).
  • Your network password (WPA/WPA2 key). Your network password is a series of 10 numbers.

If you cannot find your modem sticker,  you can also find your network name and password by logging into the admin utility for your modem. To learn how to do this, follow the detailed step-by-step instructions below.

Find the network name in the modem's admin utility

  1. From a computer already connected to your network, open up your browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox or Safari).
  2. Type: and then hit Enter.
  3. Enter the admin utility's username and password and hit Login. If you don't remember your password, click Forgot your password and follow the instructions.
  4. Click Wireless Setup.

  5. The network name is displayed in the field next to SSID Name. By default it starts with "BELLALIANT" or "FIBREOP" followed by the last 3 digits of the serial number found on the sticker on the Actiontec R1000H. (ie FIBREOP539)

  6. The network password is shown in green beside Use Default Key/Passphrase. If you have set a custom key, it will be displayed in the Use Custom Key/Passphrase section.

  7. Click Apply to save any changes.
