Change your Wi-Fi network name or password

Update your Google Fiber Wi-Fi password and network name (SSID) within your Fiber account.
This article applies only to Google Fiber customers using a Network Box or Multi-Gig Router. If you have Google Wifi instead, you can use the Google Home app to make these changes. Please visit Google Wifi's Help Center for instructions.

You can change your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) or password at any time. When you change your network name or password, you'll need to reconnect any wireless devices on your Wi-Fi network using the new name and/or password.


To change your Google Fiber Wi-Fi password or network name:

  1. In your web browser, go to your Fiber account and sign in.

  2. Select Network at the top-left corner, then select Edit Network Settings in the center of the page.

  1. Change the name of your wireless network in the "Primary network name" (SSID) field.

  1. The SSID is case-sensitive and must be 8 to 32 characters long. Be sure to use only letters and numbers—don't use spaces or special characters, such as !, @, #, $, ?, *, etc. If your SSID is outside of this character limit, or if there is an accidental space at the beginning or end of your network name, you may have connection issues.

  2. Enter a new password in the "Primary network password" field, if desired. Your Wi-Fi password is case-sensitive and should be between 8 and 63 characters. Like the wireless network name (SSID), if your password is outside of this character limit, or if there is an accidental space at the beginning or end, you may have connection issues.

    The characters you type appear as dots to keep your password private. If you want to see characters as you type, click Show.

    We recommend writing down your Wi-Fi password and storing it in an easy-to-find place.

       Record Fiber Wi-Fi network name and password.

    If you have a separate Network name for your 5 GHz network and you change your password, the password will be changed for both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks. The password is always the same for both networks.

  3. Click Apply. The settings take effect immediately. If the device you're using is connected wirelessly to your Fiber network, you must reconnect using the new network name and/or password.
