Whether you want to change the password to access the Fastweb modem or that of your Wi-Fi network, you must necessarily access the configuration panel of the device in question.
Despite what you may think, this is a very simple operation: first of all, connected to the Wi-Fi network generated by the router (or use a cable Ethernet, which is even more effective and avoids possible communication problems), starts the browser that you use to browse online from your PC (or even from smartphones and tablets, if you have decided to operate in Wi-Fi and use a portable device to do everything), enter theIP address of the router in the URL bar and give Submit, in order to display the configuration page of the same.
Generally, the default IP address of (almost) all Fastweb modems is 192.168.1.254; if, however, you have changed some network settings or the IP that I have reported to you does not work, you can easily find the information you are looking for, directly from the operating system you are using. Below I'll explain how to do it.

- MacOS: open the terminal calling it up from the menu Or> Utility on the Mac and type the command ipconfig getifaddr en1, if you are connected via Wi-Fi, or ipconfig getifaddr en0, if you are connected with an Ethernet cable.
