SOURCE: how can i make netgear router secure

You can set it to recognize Mac addresses only ... you can turn the broadcast off, you can require a password to access, you can install a hardware fire wall.

Need help with this stuff ... best I know of at a reasonable price is Network Magic, free download and eval period. You may want to spend the $ for the full license. I did and I never looked back.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Positive comments appreciated.

SOURCE: can't get access to my secure netgear router

If your computer does not connect to the wireless router, most likely the wireless card has not been configured with the router's wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc.

You wireless network must be secured
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.

If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.

Why did the router ID change when I linked it via the Wps button to the DSTV wifi gadget ?


Here's and excerpt from the Netgear WNR2000 user manual explaining that this is normal behavior for Netgear routers that support WPS..:
  • Keep Existing Wireless Settings. This check box is automatically selected after WPS is enabled to prevent unwanted settings changes, and is also selected if you have already specified wireless security settings or your SSID without using WPS. When this check box is not selected, adding a new wireless client using the push button or the Add WPS Client screen (see "Push Button Configuration" on page 2-14) changes the router's SSID and security passphrase. You might need to clear it if you are using certain registrars, such as for a Windows Vista PC, to configure the router through WPS.
Even if your router is not a WNR2000, it is likely that the configuration interface pretty much the same so you might be helped by looking at Chapter 2 page 17 in the WNR2000 manual here..:
Or else, go to Netgear support (NETGEAR Support Welcome), select Wi-Fi routers and download/display the user manual pdf and search it for "disable router's pin" or "keep existing wireless settings" and verify/change the setting so the router doesn't make changes when you use the WPS button.

To RESET the Netgear, power up the Netgear then press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router until all the LEDs flash. Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Reset and Restore the NETGEAR device to Factory Default Settings


Symptoms:

  • Forgotten/lost password to log into the NETGEAR device
  • Cannot access the NETGEAR device web interface

Resolution:

If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.

So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.

Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router

Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel

Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)

  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.

    If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.

  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers

To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.

For FR314, FR318, and FV318

These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.

How can i go wireless


Hi, take a look at this user guide from page 47:-

http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/dg834g_dg834gb_ref_manual_03Jun05.pdf

This will explain step by step.

When setting up the security, be sure to use WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK as this is more secure than WEP.

If you need any help at all, let me know.
