Finding my router password

Hi
Recently upgraded to fibre with new `Openreach router and a `Netgear` modem. How can I find my router password to allow a friends laptop to use my wireless connection, please.
regards

Re: Finding my router password

I guess you mean Netgear router and Openreach modem. The default login for the router is user=admin password=password. You ought to change the latter at the first opportunity

PS having logged in you can set the wireless pass phrase to something of your own choice under Setup - Wireless settings at top left.

Re: Finding my router password

Thanks David,
Glad you noticed the deliberate error Wink
I had a senior moment-got a bit confused  as my previouse router was first in line out of the BT connection box followed by the modem,whearas the new setup has the modem followed by the router..
Have now managed to change my  SSID and passphrase.
