If you are using a Comcast supplied gateway device, and if it hasn't been changed from its default value, it is on a label on the bottom, back, or the side. It may be called the "Password" or the "Network Key" on that label.

Very confusing. I thought with WiFi there is a "Password" that is totally different from the "Security Key".

They would be different only if you changed it from its default value that is on the label.
