Changing router network name and password

  Clapton is God 15:56 19 Apr 2018

I want to change the network name or password on my Huawei HG521 router.

Do I have to change both the name and the password at the same time or can I just change one of them - the password for instance?

you can change one at a time.

Thanks Fruit Bat. Just to clarify - if I just change the password, for instance, will the router still work if I leave the network name unchanged?

Are you talking admin password or wireless key?

if you change the wireless key (password you log into the router with your phone for instance) you will have to change the setiings on all your devices you log into your router.

Thanks Fruit Bat. I'm talking wireless password and you've now answered my question.
