If you want to change the wireless name, password, or wireless security type of the Deco network, this guide will show you how to do this.

Here we take Deco M5 as an example.

1. Launch the Deco App, Log in with your TP-Link ID or tap Sign Up to set up a TP-Link ID.

Note: If you are already logged in, this screen will be skipped.

2. Tap “More”, then click on “Wi-Fi”.

3. In the Wi-Fi settings, you have three options: Main NetworkGuest Network, and Shake to Share.

Main Network:

Deco provides both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi networks with the same network name. If you want to use 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi only, you can switch off the unwanted Wi-Fi band in the Deco app.

Note: For now, some Deco models do not support this feature, and it will be added via firmware updates in the future.

Click on the SSID or password, then you can change the SSID, password, and security type as your desire. You can also hide the SSID if necessary. 

If you want to change the wireless security type, click on Security. Currently, Deco supports WPA2-PSK(AES), WPA2-PSK(AES)+WPA-PSK(TKIP), and None security type.

For the Deco models that support WPA3, you can also select WPA3-personal or WPA3-Personal+WPA2-PSK (AES) security type.

Then please click on the Save button at the upper right corner to save the changes.


Guest Network:

Enable the Guest network if you want to use it.

Click on the SSID or password, then change the SSID, password, and security type as your desire, then tap “Save” to save the changes.


Shake to Share

Shake your phone, then choose the network to share, the method of sharing, and who to share with.
