To change the password for the wireless network on your Shaw wireless modem, you will need to log into the admin console which will allow you to configure various settings related to your wireless network. Before proceeding, please note that it is recommended that you have an ethernet cable connected between your modem and computer/laptop. While you can access the admin console via any connection (wired or wireless), a wired connection will offer the most reliable experience.  


Step 1: Connect one computer directly to the modem with an ethernet cable. If you need additional information on how to do this please refer to the following: Directly Connecting Your Computer and Modem

Step 2: Identify the brand of your modem. If your equipment has been provided by Shaw, you will either have a Cisco, SMC, Hitron or Arris branded WiFi modem. Follow the directions provided for your specific brand of Shaw wireless modem.
