Question

5G Gateway not asking for password


Badge

After setup of 5G Gateway Wi-Fi and creating a username and password initially with my phone, all of my other computers were somehow connected to it automatically. I never selected it or put in a password which means other people will access it. How do I fix this? 

Thanks

Something seems strange.  Computers don’t normally connect automatically unless the network connection was established beforehand.

 

Are you using the same SSID and password credentials from a previous router?

 

Probably best to do a factory reset on your gateway, and establish a new SSID and password never used before.  That should force your computers to reconnect only by you providing your new credentials.

Yeah this is strange. Completely different name and password. It did ask for a password on my son’s phone and the tv just now which is good. So far it’s just two computers that connected on their own. Factory reset probably a good idea. I wonder if my t-mobile router (now disconnected) had something to do with it. Hmm weird. 
 

Appreciate the help
