There have been recent news items about hackers using publicly available default passwords to access people's routers and then into their computers.

My wireless router that I rent from Shaw has all the info including password on a sticker on top of the router.
(1) Is my password unique to my router or is it a password that is widely known ?

(2) If so, can I change it ??

(3) If I do change it, will this affect Shaw operation or future assistance in problem solving ?
