Do you have slow internet speed or want to remove your device from the Cox WiFi network?
A Wi-Fi network is a great way to connect all your devices and share internet access. However, it's important to keep your Wi-Fi network secure and remove any unwanted devices. In this blog, we will guide you step by step on how to remove unnecessary devices from your Cox WiFi network.
How can you remove unwanted devices from your Cox WiFi?
Step 1. Sign in to your Cox account.
First, sign in to your Cox account. If you don't already have one, create an account by going to the Cox website and following the instructions. After logging in, you can access your account settings and manage your network.
Step 2. Go to the "Devices" tab.
Once logged in, go to the "Devices" tab. This will give you a list of all devices currently connected to your Wi-Fi network. It shows the device name, its IP address, and the time it was last connected to the network.
Step 3. Identify the device you want to remove.
Scroll through the list of devices and find the device you want to remove. You can use the device's name, IP address, or the date it was last connected to the network to identify it. Once you have identified the device, click to select it.
Step 4: Remove the device
Once you have identified the device, click the Remove button. A pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm the deletion. Click Remove again to confirm. The device will be removed from the list and will no longer be able to access your network.
Step 5: Make sure the device is removed
After deleting a device, go back to the Devices tab to make sure it's no longer listed. You may need to refresh the page to see the updated list.
How else can you manage your Cox WiFi access?
You can access most router systems through a partner website or mobile app.
Other management solutions include whitelisting and configuring security settings.
- Add devices to the white list.
Setting up a white list in your router automatically blocks devices that are not registered in the system.
This can be especially useful if you're worried about neighbors or strangers accessing your network.
- Update your security settings
Make sure your network is private and password protected so that outsiders can't access your internet for free.
You can do this by opening your router settings and applying the appropriate settings.
- Update your network credentials
If you change the network information, all connected devices will need to enter the new password to reconnect.
Make sure you exclude personal information from your password and that it contains at least 12 characters.
Your network must be secure and free from unwanted guests. Removing devices that you no longer use or that you don't know about can help improve your internet speed and keep your network secure. This guide outlines the steps required to remove devices from your Cox WiFi network so you can do it quickly and easily.
