Hi, you need to connect to the routers admin pages to configure the wireless settings and security. Check out this page:-
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101676.asp

When you get to step 6, click the WPA-PSK security setting and it will give you a box to type in a password of your choice, make it memorable but difficult to guess, so a mixture of numbers and letters. I think its a min of 8 characters.
Hope this helps..

I wan't to use the signal from my router on my desktop for my tabler , But I forgot my password ?


If you have a laptop or other device which has previously accessed the wireless router, you should be able to retrieve the router security key (password) from that device.

If that device is running Windows Vista/7/8, you can read the security key directly. In the system tray (lower right corner), click on the Wi-Fi signal icon, then right-click on the entry for your router, and select "Properties". When the properties box appears, the security key will be hidden; to display it, place a check in the "Show Characters" box. (See diagrams 1&2, below.)

Alternatively, you can install a software program on a computer that has accessed the router, in order to retrieve the security key. My suggestion is "WirelessKeyView", a Windows freeware program from Nirsoft. See: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html That will display all of the router security keys stored in that computer, under the "Key ASCII" column. (See diagram 3, below.)

How to check wireless security key or passphrase on NETGEAR routers.


Most of the times after configuring the wireless connection on the NETGEAR ROUTERS, the user either forgets the security key or misplaces it.


In order to get this key we need to login to the router's page using any computer which is physically connected to router. The below steps are applicable for most of the NETGEAR routers.

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or'http://192.168.0.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive).
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.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Hope the above steps will help the user to locate or reset the wireless security key.

My Atheros AR5007 will only complete a "Local Connection, No Internet Connection" to a NetGear N600 Dual Band Router when Security Options (WPA2-PSK (AES)...ect) are selected on the Wireless...


Since the connection works without the encryption settings, it is NOT a driver issue. It sounds like a missing wireless network security setup problem. So assuming Windows (Mac OSX is similiar):

  1. Connect a laptop/PC to the NetGear via ethernet. It saves on some aggravations later.
  2. Connect to the NetGear and restore the security settings, and remember your keyword.
  3. On your computer, open the list of Wireless Networks (usually Start->Control Panel->Network(ing)->Wireless Networks). The menu sequence might differ slightly, depending on which Windows you're running.
  4. Find and click on "Manage Wireless Networks" (or words to that effect)
  5. Right click on your wireless network's name to get the drop down menu, and select "Properties"
  6. Find a button or tab related to "Security"
  7. Under Security Type, select WPA2-PSK (or Personal)
  8. Under Encryption Type, select "AES"
  9. Under Password (or Security Key), type in your router's WiFi security key word. You may have to log back into the NetGear and find the keyword (yours) or the alternate (gibberish) form.
  10. Save the settings
  11. If you're connected to that wireless network, then disconnect
  12. Try connecting to the wireless network again. It should work this time.

I have wireless connection thru the Netgear router and don't remember the password. How can I find this out.


you have to connect to the router directly using a PC or laptop and the router's IP address. 192.168.0.1

On the wireless security page it should show the current key.

I cant connect thru my netgear router model wgr614v7


If you hook your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable you don't need the key. You can log into the router and change the WEP Key to anything you want, but u have to be directly connected to the router not going through the wireless.
