Hello Richard - no box " characters" but it did have a reference number under the old provider.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, then we have to get it from the router itself
Open your internet browser and go to

You see a sign in screen, username is ***** ***** password ***** *****
Then go to wireless and you will see the password ***** there.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
