Some broadband questions...

Hi all,
Just joined the plusnet broadband and everything is working fine! But I have some questions that I want to ask you guys...
1. Is it possible to change my routername (display wireless name), and the password of the router? (I have the standard wireless plusnet router)
2. Does your overnight usage counts towards your monthly allowance? (Because pink is your normal usage and the blue bar of overnight usage counts towards on the ''My Usage'' page)
Greetings,
casperkon

Hi there,
1) Yes you can, there's details on how to make these changes on our website at http://www.plus.net/support/broadband/hardware/thomson_wireless.shtml
2) Any usage between Midnight and 8am doesn't count towards your monthly limit. I think the usage page shows total usage but then breaks that down to on-peak and off-peak.

Just be aware that should you ever update the Plusnet router firmware, then the SSID, wireless password and router password will revert to their default values.
