Before getting to the heart of the topic, going to explain what are the steps to take for change the Fastweb Wi-Fi password, it seems to me only right to make some clarifications in this regard.
First of all, keep in mind that in order to perform the operation covered by this guide you must choose one Password that it is sufficiently safe or, to put it better, that it has a high level of entropy. If you don't know what I'm talking about, entropy is a value, expressed in bits, that measures the disorder of a system. As regards passwords, therefore, it indicates the degree of difficulty with which it is possible to discover all the characters that constitute them in relation to the set of characters used to compose them, for example: only lowercase letters, lowercase letters + uppercase letters, lowercase letters and uppercase + numbers etc.
In other words, it is good to choose an access key that is composed of 12-16 characters, which makes no sense and contains upper and lower case letters, as well as numbers and special characters.
Still on the subject of password, I also invite you to pay particular attention to the choice of encryption mode. Personally I recommend that you set for the WPA2-AES, which to date is the safest. If it creates compatibility problems with your devices, especially with older ones, you can opt for the WPA / WPA2 - TKIP / AES. Instead, avoid encryption WEP which is now considered obsolete and can easily be circumvented by hackers.

Having made the necessary clarifications above, let's get to the point and then let's find out what needs to be done to be able to change the Fastweb Wi-Fi password by going to act on the modem FASTGate.
