XFi Gateway install - but existing Wifi Network name question

​Am about to pull the trigger and migrate to the new Xfi Gateway.  I have an Asus RT-AC68R wifi router that I intend to use - in Bridge Mode.​

​When first installing the gateway - the vids say one must enter the name and password for the new wireless network - upon configuring the gateway. I want to use the same wifi network names/passwords currently in use (one for 2 Ghz and one for 5 Ghz).​

​How does one bypass creating a new wifi network name and migrate to the current wifi network names?  Form my reading of the documentation, there is always a step to create/name the network - I'd like to avoid that and use the existing network.​

​Many thanks for any direction.​

Hello @user_405d90 Thanks for reaching out! This is a great question! You may use this link to set up your Wi-Fi name password. Now the name and passwords must meet the standards outline https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/view-change-wifi-password.

Are you having any error messages when you try to keep your same network info?
