You did not specify whether you want to change the wireless password or the modem/router password so I will give you the instructions for the router first. If you want to change the wireless password let me know.
Open your internet browser and type in
It should prompt you for a username and password.
Default username is admin
Default password is motorola
Click on the admin tab . Enter your old password, new password and confirm password. Click apply and then click reboot.
Once thats done

    Yes my recommendation does work for this model. However the procedure for securing your home network is different. You need to login using the username and password for the router(see last post for default user name and pass if you haven't changed the default one) . Now click on wireless and then click on the security tab. Choose encryption type WPA is recommended and type in the password you want to use in the field 128-bit Ascii. Click apply and the router will reboot. Once its done you are secured.
