Administrative Password

Hello, new customer as of today and while trying to access my WiFi settings I'm being asked for an administrative password, which I was never given. I'm apparently slow today because I haven't been able to figure this one out. Help would be appreciated. 


Hello Rotorwrench,


Great question! The default administrative password for all HT2000W model modems is 'admin'
