Default How do you change the wifi name and or password?

I just got camera 2/9/13 and still cant enjoy as expected.
It would originally connect just fine to phone and appt would recognize and everything was fine except no preview screen so I was told it needed to update.
I updated and now it wont even connect to my phones wifi and obviously phones appt does not connect. I read on gopros site that you can change the wifi name and password if you connect camera to the cineform but I also found out software will not work or recognize Hero I'm stuck. without benefits of the wifi.
here is my steps on connecting camera on android (galaxy s3)
1. turn on phones wifi
2. turn on Gopros wifi and to remote/cellphone option(or what ever its called)
3. scan and locate Gopro on phone
4. select device and enter password (i created new name and password during update)
5. ...wating, wating..the phone says "Authenticating" but will not read connected.
Please help.

Default Had this as well...

hard reboot the camera and reboot the phone.
Worked for me anyway..

The original subject I thought was how to change wifi and password..
if you still need to know that.. go through the setup again.. it's one of the steps.

Just did it yesterday as advised for freezing problem.. FYI.. it didn't help.

but there's the wifi setup.

Default Reload firmware

What you need to do is to reload the firmware. So you will have to do the manual method of downloading the firmware to your computer and then to a SD card and follow that procedure.

Whats good about this method is.. If you forget your password you setup online when you went to get the firmware download, within that zip they sent is a setting of ini file and with in that is your SSID and password etc

Good luck
