The default wireless network password for a NETGEAR router is written on the bottom of the device. But that’s just a hodgepodge of different scripts and alphabets. Even if no one could readily guess such a password, it can be difficult to keep it in mind whenever a new device has to join the network. Changing the NETGEAR Wi-Fi network’s password is a prudent precaution to take.
