I don't have the Exede WIFI modem, however looking at the guide located at:

http://www.exede.com/documents/brochures/ex-wifi-modem-user-guide.pdf

It appears similar to just about any other wireless router functionality. You should be able to establish a connection using the assigned network name and password printed on the back or bottom of the modem.

Once a connection is established, you should be able to reach the administrative functionality by opening a browser and going to 192.168.1.1:8080 (be sure to include the 8080 port number as shown) . The administrative user name and password (like most) is admin and admin. Naturally your first action should be changing the administrative credentials as well as the wireless network credentials.
