Hello ladyholmes

Just checking up on your post. The steps that paulgarcia posted is good information to help change the Wi-Fi password. However, I was able to locate your U-verse account and I see that the type of gateway//modem you have is the Motorola NVG510 so it's going to look a little bit different then the pictures posted above. Here is a document that addresses this specific request Changing Wireless Password in an NVG510

If you need any additional assistance with this, please feel free to let us know and we'll be glad to help. Thanks! Smiley Happy

This is for 2Wire gateways.

Login to 192.168.1.254. That is your gateway's address.

Click on Wireless

- You may want to change the Wireless Name (SSID)

- Also, you can disable the SSID broadcast so that your gateway does not appear as an available wireless network when people search for available access points.


- Make sure that Wireless Security is enabled.

- You may want to change the authentication type as well to whatever will suit your need.

- Most importantly, you can customize your wireless password to something else.

You may also click on Status, under LAN, under Settings.

And if you scroll down a bit, you'll see the devices that are and have been connected to your gateway.

(The device IP addesses and MAC addresses have been removed on this screenshot).

Take note, however, that resetting the gateway will revert all the settings to default.

Here's the 510 manual:

See pg 35 to change the wireless key.  Good luck 😉
