Wireless security is difficult to handle simply because the manufacturers have different interfaces to the management software. Netgear has a very good description of how to set up the wireless security in the manual, if you have misplaced the manual it can be downloaded at: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/DG834Gv4_RMsrc_13Sep07.pdf

Any posted answer would be multipages long and simply a rehash of the manual.
I recommend using the WPA-PSK.

If you have specific questions they can be answered quickly.

How do I secure/lick my broadband service so none of my neighbours can log onto it and it only allows my house hold to use it?


Hi, Inorder to make your wireless network secure you could enable a password for your network which would be required for logging into the network.Please visit the below website to access the screenshots that would be helpful for you to setup a password for your wireless network. http://www.pcwintech.com/screenshots-netgear-wgr614-v7-netgear-firmware Once you are at the website click on each of the screenshots to follow setting up the router for first use.If the router is configured and you would only like to secure your wireless connection then click on the wireless settings where you would find the SSID(name of your wireless network) and below secure options you could select the the type of security after which you need to enter a pass-phrase the box below.You would be able to access the router page form your computer by opening an Internet explorer and type into the address barhttp://192.168.1.1 or
http://192.168.0.1 .
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.

Wireless connection problem


That is the correct access IP address to acces the router properties.

If its a forgotten password you will need to "reset" the router to default by straightening out a paper clip and insert it into the rear of the router till it reboots.

BEWARE this will wipe username and password for the internet and security key. If you dont know your U/N and P/W then call the ISP to reset it.

To enable the above access the router by using the above IP address and re-insert U/N and P/W.

Access security options in the router menu and follow instructions to recreate security password.

How do I ecrypt my internet connection


Encryption (WEP) is enabled/configured on the wireless router (access point) for the wireless network. If this is your home network, then you need to be the one to set-up the encryption on the router first, then you 'join' the encrypted network using 'keys' you created during the configuration on the router. If this appears to be written in 'gerneral' terms, it is true because each router manufacture does it a bit differently.

If you are joining a 'public' WIFI connection that does not have security, you will not be able to encrypt it since the router is providing an 'open' non-secure access.

Location that present secure encrypted access will provide you with the 'key' to access the network, which you add to the set-up configuration of your adapter via the driver properties of your operating system

  1. Make sure your computer is connected by Wire to the NETGEAR System.
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Type www.192.168.0.1 OR www.192.168.1.1 n hit enter.
Now in username type "admin" and in password type "password" (unless not configured)

  1. on the left hand side click "Wireless Settings"
  2. Under " Security Options", select your desired method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
  3. choose Network key it can be anythng from 8-63 characters
  4. n Hit ENTER.

I dunno ow to secure my connection with my edimax router


You can read more about WEP and WPA in the following links:
This article explains how to configure WEP/WPA-PSK/Access list on NETGEAR Wireless router (also applicable to access points).
Note:
  • You can configure WEP or WPA. But you cannot enable both at the same time.
  • You can configure Access list and also enable WEP or WPA for additional security.
  • After you enable wireless security features on the router (or access point), you must configure your wireless clients (wireless computers) with matching settings. Your wireless clients will not be able to connect unless you configure matching settings.
  • Its recommended you enable these wireless security settings from a computer wired to the router (or access point).
Configuring WEP:
  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.
    The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
  3. Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu. n101675_image001.jpg
  4. Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
  5. Select Authentication type as Automatic and Encryption Strength as 64-bit (or 128-bit) - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  6. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) and Apply the settings. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.

Internet connection


First up, check that the router is broadcasting SSID and also disable any security so you can test the system and establish a link. Once you have done this you can add security in later

You may find THIS program useful in your testing to establish that the router is transmitting and there are no other routers in the area on the same channel.

Also check that the USB wifi is enabled and transmtting.

It may be suseful to post the exact model numbers of the USB wifi and the router along with your system OS.
