Our daughter received a tablet for Christmas and I am trying to figure out which wireless network connection is mine.
Can someone help me figure this out? For example there is a Wi-Fi network that shows up on her new tablet named "MWXG1". The strength bars say "Excellent". Is that my wireless network connection here at my home?
I have a Verizon "MI424WR" router.
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
Solved! Go to Solution.
The "SSID" is the network name. You'll also need the passphrase to connect There are several options to learn how your network is setup:
The best thing you can do is:
Enjoy your new toys!
None of those.
Assuming you have a rev. I (you didn't say), it should be on the first line which should read:
Actiontec rev. I User name: admin Password: whatever
Enter the user name in the user name field.
Enter the password in the password field of the Actiontec login page.
The password is case sensitive.
Ignore any extra dots that appear as you type the password.

Regarding your Step 2 and the router password from my label:
Which of the following is the router password?
Thanks for your detailed post.
None of them.
WPS pin? I didn't think Verizon routers had WPS active. WPS is an easy way to configure your devices, but can be a security whole as well. WPS PIN on a router is specifically the security hole as it can easily be broken. WPS button is a technique that is still reasonably secure as its only active for a short time for a single configuration when you press it.
Some of the new routers have a password listed. Older ones from Verizon use either
serial number of the router.
or ask you to create one when you first logon
I am having the same problem with my new tablet in selecting a WiFi network. My Verizon router says ESSID. For the WiFi network on my tablet I have tried entering ESSID and SSID for the network name in both caps and lower case. The tablet says "cannot find this network". I have my User ID from the router and my password but I can't get past the network name.
