  1. Make sure the cable modem is powered on. 
  2. Connect a laptop or PC to the cable modem with an Ethernet cable.
  3. Once you've connected to your modem, open a web browser and type in the address bar and hit enter.

    You should see this page after step 3.
  4. You will be prompted for a username and password. Use the following:
    username: admin
    password: password
  5. Once logged in, click the Wireless Setup tab at the top of the screen. Your wireless password will be listed on the bottom of the page. You can either use the existing wireless password, or change it to something else (8 characters or more are required). Click Apply when complete.

    *IMPORTANT: DO NOT press the "Change Password" button on this screen. This resets the cable modem password and may lock you out of your modem.
