You can access instead 192.168.1.1 which will route you to the router’s setup page. It will prompt you for a username and password at first and you can admin in both fields. If you have the Setup screen after that, go to Wireless on the main tabs and set it to Manual for the Configuration View. You can change the wireless network name or SSID for both bands and then set the Security Mode to WPA2/WPA Mixed Mode for both and then you can use the same pass phrase or wireless password. Do not forget to save the settings after that.
