Hi.
I just bought a SR360n modem for my Internet connection. I was just curious if there was a way to change the wpa passphrase (Wifi key)?

I thought that when you connect to the modem you would have to use your ISP password rather than a default number on the bottom of the modem. When I tried to connect my tablet to the Wifi signal I had to type in the default number rather than my own ISP password. Aren't these default numbers easy to obtain if someone does the proper research online? I'm just afraid that someone in my vicinity (neighbor) would know the number and hack into my wifi connection. My ISP number is more unique and would be harder to obtain.

I believe you will need to contact your ISP to do that.

You have a Gateway (modem and router combo). Did you buy it yourself?
If so, you should be able to configure it.
Type in 192.168.0.1 to get to the settings. If your ISP leases it to you, then they have set controls on it so you might not be able to change much.

The default is admin for the user and admin for the password.

After you log in, click on Management in the left pane.
Under Access Controls is Passwords.

I believe these modems are made specifically for ISP's so it was used. In fact it is an EarthLink modem. I don't think you can even use Earthlink as an ISP up here in Canada.

You may need to enter the ISP's name and password into the new router before it will connect to the internet. Some ISPs keep them secret though. (This isn't the same as the login to the router password or the wireless password)
