Changing the Network name/password on XFINITY MiFi 4082

• Make sure that the MiFi device is turned on
• Also make sure that the MiFi is connected with your device
• Open the web browser
• In the address bar, type in and hit enter
• You will now be on the MiFi landing page/admin page
• Look for the link login on the top-right
• Type admin as the password and click on login
• Make sure that you are back on the MiFi landing page
• Click on the MiFi administration link on the top right (just above the signal strength icon)
• Look for black coloured Menu bar below the XFINITY logo
• Place your mouse cursor over WiFi and from the drop down go for WiFi Settings
• You will now be on the WiFi Settings page
• Under Secure Profile Click on the text box of Network Name (SSID)
• Erase the existing text and provide a new Network name as you wish
• Now click on the text box of Network Key
• Erase the existing password and type in the password you like to have
• You can use alphabets, numbers and even symbols (Should be at least 8 ASCII characters in length)
• Click on Apply
• MiFi will be restarting automatically
• Just for being on the safer side restart the MiFi yourself (Turn off the MiFi and bring it back on)
• Now MiFi will be detected by a different name (the new you just gave before) on your device
• Enter the new password you just set to connect to the MiFi
• That's it, your MiFi has now got a new Name and password
