Checking WIFI credentials or personalizing it.

The modem provides dual band wireless network. This means, it is capable of transmitting two different standard frequency ranges such as 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
The 2.4 GHz band provides coverage at a longer range but transmits data at slower speeds. The 5 GHz band provides less coverage but transmits data at faster speeds. The range is lower in the 5 GHz band because higher frequencies cannot penetrate solid objects, such as walls and floors. 

1.  Select Wireless and click each GHz range you wanna check or change the credentials. To check or change WiFi Username, go to Basic and SSID 

2. To check or change WiFi password, click on Security and go to WPA/WAPI passphrase
