You may have heard in the News that TalkTalk has recently had a security breach whereby their users' routers WiFi passwords have been hacked. You might want to change the WiFi password of your EE Brightbox router in case a similar attack is made against EE's routers. It is a good idea anyway to not use the default password as supplied with the router & which you will find on the label affixed to the router. You can do this by following these steps, which apply to all versions of the Brightbox:
If you have the TG589 router, you can find the equivalent steps covered in Configuring your TG589 router services.
It may be wise to also change the router admin password by following Change admin password.
