As more people are working from home, there is more and more WiFi congestion, especially on the 2.4Ghz band. If at all possible, try using your devices hard wired or at least on the 5Ghz band if your router and devices support it.
If your speeds are still inconsistent hardwired, please do the following tests hardwired to the modem, bypassing your router (be sure to power the modem off and on again each time a new device is connected to it).

INTERNET TECHNICAL FAQ
MODEM SETUP GUIDE
WiFi passwords can only be changed on their end by logging into either the WiFi modem or the WiFi router and changing it there. For the CGNM-3550 you would go to 192.168.0.1 in a web browser, enter cusadmin for the username and password for the password and then click on Manage Wireless and then basic settings. You can change the Wireless name and password there. For WiFi routers they are all different and you would need to follow the setup guide for the router.
