I want to change the SSID and password on my Technicolor CGM4141. If I do that will my wireless cox tv boxes still work?
Turn off your router and test for TV programming. If no programming, you'd need to update the network setting on your cable box.
Also, what portion of the service is wireless?
I assume there's a coax from the wall going into your modem. Is the TV signal from the modem to the cable-box wireless?
Or is your cable-box connected to the wall coax (splitter) and the signal is wireless from the cable-box to the TV?
What's the make and model of your cable-box?
Cable comes into the house traditionally. It goes to my panoramic Wifi modem. The set top boxes receive the tv signal from the panoramic WiFi modem via a private network (that’s what I’m told by the cox guy)setup between the modem and the set top boxes. My set top boxes Only have a hdmi cable going from them to the tv, and of course power.
im wondering if the set top boxes authenticate using the said and password I can see, or if they authenticate using their own
If I'm incorrect about the private network and you do change your network credentials, there appears to be a Wireless Protected Setup (WPS) button on the bottom of the streamer. If you lose programming after changing your network, press the WPS to reconnect.
