You can find your network name (also known as an SSID) and password (also known as WEP/WPA encryption keys) printed on the sticker attached to your modem or by logging into the modem's admin utility.
To find your network name and password on your sticker
Find the sticker attached to the side of your FibreOP modem.
Your network name is printed beside Network Name (2.4 GHz and 5GHz).
Your password is printed beside Password.
Note: The FibreOP modem is dual band, which means you can choose from 1 of 2 wireless networks - 2.4 or 5 GHz - when connecting Wi-Fi-capable devices like laptops, tablets and smartphones.
The 2.4 GHz network provides further distance but has an increased chance of interference than the 5 GHz network due to the fact more consumer products operate on 2.4 GHz (e.g. baby monitors, cordless phones, microwaves, etc.). It’s great for roaming through the house and to meet the demands of everyday Internet activities.
The 5 GHz network provides higher speeds at a closer range and is less likely to be subject to interference. It’s great for video and audio streaming, as well as gaming.
