Use the Basic Settings - Password Settings page to set up a password to restrict unauthorized persons from accessing to your gateway cable modem settings. Click Password Settings in the Basic Settings section of the Setup page to access the Password Settings page.

Your gateway modem comes from the factory with no password enabled. We highly recommend that you set up a user password to prevent unauthorized users from modifying the settings of your network.

If you do choose to set up a password, use a password that you can easily remember. Donot forget your password.
