New install- default wifi password?

Had a new install today, and the tech failed to tell me what he put down as my wifi password. Is there a default one that is normally used? I have a Motorola sbg6580 gateway

Re: New install- default wifi password?

SSID (network name) and network key should be printed on the bottom of the device.If he changed it from that, press and hold the recessed reset button on the back of the device for over 15 secs, to reset to factory conditions and try again.

Yes that's the default for logging into the gateway, however the OP was asking for the wifi password, like I said that is printed on the bottom of the device...... In any case the wireless settings can be changed by logging into the gateway......
