out the description below for a handy breakdown. This means you can skip straight ahead to
the section you want. Also, for any data conscious viewers, make
sure you choose a lower quality setting, for example 480p. Wireless settings. Your Plusnet Hub One router uses smart WiFi
to connect to the best signal on either the 2.4 or 5GHz band. This depends on what your
device supports or how far away from the router. The 5GHz band provides a shorter
range but a faster speed. However, not all devices are able to connect to it. Changing the Wireless name. You may want to change the name of your wireless
connection, or change the name of the different wireless frequencies. To do so is very easy.
Please bear in mind that changing both bands to different names will mean you’ll have to
connect to them both separately. Once you are connected to the router, either
wirelessly or via ethernet, please open up your web browser.
If you go to 192.168.1.254 it will bring up your Hub One home page.
Now you are logged into your router, if you click on “Advanced Settings” at the top, you
will then be asked for your admin password. You will find your admin password on the bottom
of the router or on the easy reference card. Enter this and click ok.
If you click on continue to advance settings you will now be able to make changes.
Please click on ‘wireless’ in the top left, and you will be presented with all configurable
wireless options. You will see at the top you have a 2.4GHz
