This is 23 characters long and, to say the least, it is a bit inconvenient to enter. How do I change it to something shorter more meaningful and easier to enter?

Start off by connecting up with the supplied ethernet cable then in your browser address bar type in:

192.168.1.1 then hit enter

Login with the password admin

Go to Livebox - WiFi Settings choose a Livebox name if you want and then a security key (anything you want).

Select security mode WPA/WPA2 (TKIP/AES). Ensure 'Easy pairing' is ticked.

You will then need to change the security settings in all your wifi devices you wish to connect to the livebox.

Fruit Bat /\0/\ Thanks for that; it did it! I was just anxious that if I changed the key something dreadful would have happened but all seems to be working normally.
