I coudln't find it anywhere in the manual.  I did find out how to do it in an older question on this forum.  It is not overly intuitive.  First you log into your router.  Then go to Basic Security Settings.  Go down to section #4 Wi-Fi Security.  Click the WPA2 radio button (even if it is already checked).  This will open up the fields you need to change your wireless password.

I see the initial setup of the router on p. 23-24 in the Fios G1100 router user guide.  Nothing there about how to go back into the router and changing your wireless pw.  Maybe I am missing something but I do not see anything in there describing how to actually do it.

Page 42 and 43 shows a step to change SSID and password for wireless.

your link you gave is not functional. Some sort of deny message.

in any case you know how to do what you wanted. There can be many ways to do things at times. Simply amazing.

Sorry about the link.  I just copied it from the Verizon site.  Should have tested it before I sent it.  Agreed, the pages you listed do show where to go to do this.  Not sure I would have ever figured out that you have to re-check the WPA2 button to get the password fields to show up.  Thanks for your help.
