Using the old Wi-Fi Name and Password
In order to maintain optimal network security, it is always suggested to choose a new SSID and password after changing your Wi-Fi network to Plume. This will require you to update the Wi-Fi settings on all your devices, which may not be very convenient if you have more than a handful.
If you have many devices, keeping your old SSID and password will allow them to easily migrate to your new Plume network. In this case, be sure to turn off the Wi-Fi on your existing router or modem/router after setting up Plume. Keeping your existing Wi-Fi turned on can cause frequent disconnects of your devices from Plume.
If you need to keep your old Wi-Fi
If you are keeping Wi-Fi on your modem and/or previous router system turned on, setting a different SSID becomes crucial for your devices to avoid bouncing between different networks with the same SSID.
Do not add the Plume network to any devices you intend on using with the old network and likewise forget the old network on all devices being connected to the Plume network. Along with the additional interference caused, you will lose connectivity whenever your devices switch from Plume to the old Wi-Fi network and we strongly suggest you turn off the old Wi-Fi instead.
