Hello FastEdddie!  The network password is only needed if you are connecting by wifi, and it is really just fancy talk for your wifi password.  So whatever the wifi password is on your router is what you would use there. 

If you are connecting by an ethernet cable straight to a router everything is automatic and you shouldn't need to put in any passwords or even configure anything.  It takes about 30 seconds to a minute to get the connection established, but after that it is just good to go.
