The modem router comes with preset security. This means that the WiFi network name
(SSID), network key (password), and security option (encryption protocol) are preset in the
factory. The preset SSID and password are uniquely generated for every device to protect
and maximize your WiFi security. You can find the preset SSID and password on the product
label (see Bottom Panel Product Label on page 13).
NETGEAR recommends that you do not change your preset
security settings. If you decide to change your preset security
settings, make a note of the new settings and store the note in a
safe place where you can easily find it.
