INSTRUCTIONS & INFO

Get your network info

You can find your Wi-Fi® network name and password on your Wi-Fi gateway itself or on the gateway settings screen. The label on your gateway is the quickest way to get your network info. If you changed your Wi-Fi name and password from the default on the label, use the gateway settings screen.

Wi-Fi gateway

Look for the sticker with the original Wi-Fi settings on the side of your gateway.
  • The Wi-Fi name is 2WIRE followed by the last 3 digits of the gateway serial number (SN).
  • The Wi-Fi password is the 10-digit number labeled Wireless Network Key. (Mac OSX users may need to enter a $ character at the beginning of the Wi-Fi password.)

You can also get your network info from a device connected to your home Wi-Fi network. This is useful if you or someone else changed your Wi-Fi name or password.
  1. Go to your gateway settings.
  2. Select Home Network > Edit Settings.
  3. In the Password field, enter the System Password (Default Encryption Key) from the side of your gateway.
  4. In Status at a Glance: Wireless Settings, select Edit Settings.
    • In Identify Network, the Wi-Fi network name is the Network Name.
    • In Wireless Security, the Wi-Fi password is the custom pass phrase.
