To find your WiFi network name and password, look on your router.
A white label (sometimes with a barcode) is affixed to the chassis of the router, usually on the bottom or the back of the device near the power or Ethernet ports. The label displays both the default SSID or Network Name and the default Passphrase or Security Key for the device. This label is provided by the manufacturer and the default Network Name and Password are encoded in the device firmware.
See below for images from the Smart RG Router and the Arris Router to help you find and identify the label on your device.

Security experts recommend you change your SSID name and password. The user manual for your router will show you how to do this.
