Password security

When settiing a password, what is the more secure method, using a completly random password with Numbers upper and lower case letters and special charscters at least 17 characters. Or using diceware and a corresponding word list to pick at least 7 words (and maybe changing a letter or two to a similar symbol)?

I'm going to be restting my wifi tomorrow. The first option listed is my standard method (password generated by Enpass Password Manager). I'm ok with the diceware too, just want to do which ever is most secure.

Use the math. Length trumps complexity. Dictionary words have the least randomness.
