Yes, you can change your Wi-Fi connection or set up a new one. Here are the general steps to do so:
Choose a New Router:
If you’re getting a new Wi-Fi connection, you might need a new router. Select a router that meets your requirements, taking into consideration factors like coverage area, number of devices, and speed.
Set Up the New Router:
Follow the instructions provided by the router manufacturer to set up the new router. This typically involves connecting it to your modem, configuring basic settings, and securing your network with a password.
Once the new router is set up, reconnect your devices to the new Wi-Fi network. You’ll need to enter the new Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password on each device.
Configure Router Settings:
Access the router’s settings through a web browser by entering its IP address (usually something like 192.168.1.1) into the address bar. From there, you can customize advanced settings if needed.
Update Network Settings on Devices:
Some devices may automatically connect to the new Wi-Fi network, while others may require manual intervention. Update the Wi-Fi settings on your devices to connect to the new network.
Inform Devices with Static IP Addresses:
If you have devices with static IP addresses, make sure to update their network settings to match the new router’s configuration.
Disconnect Old Devices:
If you are replacing an existing (Re Rockspace local) Wi-Fi network, disconnect devices from the old network to avoid confusion and potential connectivity issues.
If you share the Wi-Fi network with others, make sure to inform them of the change, providing the new network name and password.
Dispose of Old Equipment:
If you’re replacing your old router, consider proper disposal or recycling of the old equipment in accordance with local regulations.
Keep in mind that the specific steps can vary depending on the brand and model of your router. Refer to the router’s manual or the manufacturer’s website for detailed instructions.
If you are changing your internet service provider (ISP) and getting a completely new internet connection, you may need to coordinate with your new ISP to set up the service and receive the necessary equipment, such as a modem and router. They will guide you through the process of establishing the new connection.
How To Rockspace Wifi Extender Configure

Plug the extender into an electrical outlet and turn it on.
Connect to the Extender:
On your computer or mobile device, go to the list of available Wi-Fi networks and connect to the Wi-Fi network with the Rockspace extender’s name (usually something like “Rockspace_EXT”).
Configuration via Web Browser:

Open a web browser on your connected device.
Enter the Extender’s IP Address:
