For anyone to be able to start to answer that, they'll first need to know what router you have.

You can't change the username.

You can however change the WiFi SSID and the password you use to connect to it.

OK, thanks. I have already changed the password and the wireless SSID and password.

Hi @John_GC,

 

Thank you for getting in touch. The Hub One's username can't be changed to anything other than "admin", I'm afraid.

 

It's possible to change the router's admin password, wireless password and the SSID. You can find more information on the router settings here.
