Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router
The installation process includes entering a Wired Equivalent Privacy or Wi-Fi protected access code. How do I get that code?
Hello...these codes are more commonly called WEP or WPA keys, and if your network is secured (encrypted) this key can be found within your router settings.
To find it, open a web browser and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar. You will be prompted for a username and password. If these have not been changed, they will still be username admin and password password: otherwise, please enter the password you have set up.
The WPA or WEP key should be under Wireless Settings, if encryption has been set up.
(Please note, if you plan to make any changes to your router settings, you must make a wired connection to the router.)
I do hope this helps you - if not, or if anything is not clear, please come back to Fixya.

I understand that you need to check the security key so as to connect the computer with the router's wireless network.
In order to get this key we need to login to the router's page using any computer which is physically connected to router. Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase (or network key).
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
