Re: FYI XB6 Gateway password has to be changed from the default

I was just about to post something about that but happy you did. In a sense normally I leave it at password since there aren’t any people in my home normally that would know about the gateway page and etc but I also see where they’re coming from when they say the password can’t be left at the default. I even tested changing it back to password and it does change but it makes you change it again compared to other gateways such as the 1682 which don’t force you to change it.

Well, at least the new password is saved when I use Chrome.  I haven't tested it with any other browser.
