In attempting to change my wifi password, I get to the screen Home Networ--Wireless but the WEP field and KEY field are grayed about, not allowing me to make a change. In fact it looks the same as your illustration., where the items are grayed. What should I do to allow me to enter into those fields? I'm attempting this with device NVG589. Thanks

If you do that, won't the IP Set Top Boxes be unable to access WiFi? If so, how do you change the password there?
This Is Not solved, this solution does not work
@Xnerd1963 - I guess the solution as described just doesn't work for you. Maybe these instructions will.
You can do this workaround instead,
If you've already lost the sticker, there is no way for you to make any changes inside the modem interface without the device access code. You can either factory reset the modem (press Reset button at the back of the modem until all lights go off except for the Power. Roughly about 15-20secs.) then call tech support to ask for the default SSID (Wireless name) and Wireless Security key (Password) or you can just simply ask them to change it for you based on your own preference. Depending of the model of the modem, they have a way of personalizing your Wireless information remotely.
But of course, you would need to provide your 4-digit account passcode to the tech support operator in order for them to do any changes.
If you're a residential user, you can call them at 800-288-2020. If you're a Business, you can dial 877-503-2622 option 4.
About retreiving your Device Access Code, I am not possitive if they have access for that information.
I hope this helps. Cheers!
Password area is grey under home and blank under guest SSID but would not let me type in new password
@Baldev - Try turning the radio on (enabled) first! As for guest I am not sure it would have anything in it if you never set it before. And it too needs to be enabled to set or change it.
The format is a bit different from what I am seeing on my screen
My dad made the mistake of canceling his AT&T account. He was getting free WiFi at his new living arrangement.
He does not recall any passwords related to the AT&T account. Is there any hope of him being able to recover any of his files?
Is there any way to get help? AT&T will not help him as there has been a 3 month delay in the request, and because he now has a new address. Any hope?

Change my Wi-Fi password

Take a look at post #2 in this six year old thread you just posted to- lot's of good info.
"Don't make me summon the flying monkeys...."
Why can't I use a password of my choice?
The instructions are confusing... 2 of this and 2 of that...
What is a good sample password?
How can we improve?
