I purchased a wireless access point used, but do not have the password for it.  

The model info is available here:

Is there a way to reset/recover the password?

Hi

Have a look for a reset button, usually at the back, or underneath.

As per Chapter 2.1 in the document you linked to:
Reset Button – By holding this down for more than five seconds, the unit
will reset to its factory default settings.

You can then set the unit up as per the manual as if it was new.

Cheers

P.S.
Sorry - I should have specified that the unit must be turned on before you press the button for it to perform the reset.

Cheers

OK.  
I found this comment from another user - an alternative reset method for you to try.
To do a reset:
1. Disconnect power.
2. Hold down “Reset” button with something small (not a pencil).
3. Connect power continue to hold the Reset button for 10-15 seconds.
