Getting your Wireless Network Name and Password

 

Netgear 7550 Modem

If you are attempting to connect a device to your Netgear 7550 B90 wirelessly and you don't know your Wireless network name (SSID) and/or Wireless password, you should be able to find the default information by locating the Yellow label on the front side of your modem.

If your modem does not have the yellow label, you will need to perform the following steps from a computer or device that is currently connected to your AT&T network. You will not be able to complete these steps from the computer or device from which you are attempting to connect wirelessly.

  1. Open a Web browser, and type 192.168.1.254 into the address bar, press Enter.
  2. Locate the Blue column on the left side of the screen. Click on Wireless.

  3. Enter the Modem Access Code, if prompted to do so. This code is located on the white label on the bottom of the modem.
