We had one "old fashioned" modem. Connected it (via cable) to a wifi mesh system. Wifi system name was "Johnwifi".
Then condo had Xfinity bring fiber to each unit. The installer kept the name "Johnwifi" on the new combo modem/router - but renamed mesh system "Johnwifimesh". All our devices are looking for "Johnwifi". "Johnwifimesh" covers the whole large condo. The Xfinity router does not. Can I simply change the name on the modem/router to something else (eg. "Xfinityrouter") and rename the mesh system back to "Johnwifimesh"? Would be a lot simpler then reinstalling about 10 devices. Many of them are speakers that need to be on same wifi network.
