Combine Wi-Fi network names

Having a single network name and password helps route your devices to the best Wi-Fi network band signal.

You use your Wi-Fi® network name (SSID) and Wi-Fi network password to connect wireless devices to your Wi-Fi gateway or All-Fi™ Hub and get online. The Pace 5268, BGW210, BGW320, and All-Fi Hub (CGW450) all have two network bands, 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Your Wi-Fi network may be set up with different network names for each one.

Having different network names helps identify each band, but it doesn’t offer the best Wi-Fi experience. New gateway band-steering technology works only if you have a single Wi-Fi network name.

If you (or someone else) set up separate names and passwords, we will step you through on how to change back to just one to take advantage of band-steering technology.
