How do I customize the admin login and Wi-Fi credentials on my G34/G36 gateway?

Network security is very important to ARRIS.  When logging into the G34/G36 Web Manager for the first time, the Home Network Wizard is launched to create an admin password, customized Wi-Fi credentials, and set the time zone.  It is required to complete the Home Network Wizard in order to access the Web Manager.
