    Default Changing Security Key on Telecom Modem

    Hi there,

    Had our fibre connection upgraded today and decided to take the Telecom modem (Technicolor TG587n) as we have had connection issues with our old ASUS modem. I wasn't around when the Chorus engineer installed the equipment and found that the SSID and Wireless Key are provided by Telecom. I would like to change these for obvious security reasons but can't seem to find a way to do it. Is it fixed and if so why? Is there any way to get to these settings and set a Wireless Key that only we know?

    TIA

    It's not a *big* deal because I believe it's based on the WAN MAC address which you've got to physically have access to the unit to find out. It's not like they're all set the same as "admin12345" or something silly
