Know your home Wi-Fi?


Likes # 0

Over Christmas I've been with my wife's family, generally trouble-shooting (not always successfully!) all their general home PC, mobile and network issues.

At each home I've come across the fact that no one knows their Wi-Fi password or the location of the router, and some didn't even know their broadband provider.

How many people here know or keep a record of their Wi-Fi passwords, SSID, ISP username, etc?

From my experience over the past couple of weeks I suspect many households are wholly unprepared for a little network system failure and reset.

Easy peasy.
