Choose a suitable password based on the standard guidelines for strong password security. Enter the new password in the Password box, and re-enter the same password a second time in the space provided. Entering the password a second time ensures you did not accidentally type in the wrong password the first time.

The location of these fields on the WRK54G console is shown below. The characters you type are not shown by design; they are replaced by dots as an added security feature.
