I'm assuming we mean wireless security?

Run your internet browser - Internet Explorer or Firefox type the router address in the address field (usually http://192.168.0.1)

Default user name of admin and default password of password

Click the Wireless Settings link in the main menu of the DG834GT firewall. There are a number of options available with WEP the most basic. For basic protection select WEP, put in a passphrase (anything you like) and the router will provide you with 4 keys based on your passphrase - take a note of the keys. When you try to connect to the router wirelessly (laptop, game console, etc) the router will require you to input one of these keys to verify your access and that should be it.

For further information to go the netgear website and have a look at the manual - http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/dg834gt_manual.pdf

The signal from my router to my Samsung blu ray is not strong enough


There are several things you need to consider with wireless connection:
Distance - How far is the Netgear router from the Samsung Blu ray? Try changing the wireless channel on the Netgear router that can help boost the signal. Wireless Security- Have you enabled wireless security on the router? Is it WEP or WPA? Make sure that you input the wireless security key on the Blu Ray player and that you have setup wireless settings correctly.Number of wireless devices - Check the number of wireless devices(laptops, desktops, pda's, etc) connecting to the router as it also weakens the signal. And if wireless security is not enabled on your Netgear router, there's a chance that your neighbor might be connecting to your router via wireless.
You can also test how strong the signal is by placing a wireless laptop on the same location where the blu ray player is. If the laptop gets a weak signal as well, you can try placing the router closer to the blu ray player.

What do u need to connect on the NetGear WPN824 RangeMax 108 Mbps Wireless G Router for it to be fully fuctinig


most wireless routers are the same. They have a WAN / Internet port that connects to your internet providers modem and four ports to connect your computers to, this is for wired configuration. For wireless you need to setup your security key, and network name(SSID) , see link below on how to connect to router, i wrote up yesterday . Once you have completed this step you can use your laptop to browse for wireless networks and press connect on your home network once the computer finds it. click here for some configuration help tips on how to connect to your router. Please note most routers will work simply connecting them, and trying to connect to "Default" or similar without any security. Some do not allow this and you need to create a security key and enable the wireless via the same console prior to use. Hope that helps you.

These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.

You can learn how to setup your router easily.

DONT KNOW WHAT MY SECURITY KEY IS CAN I RESET? IT


Do you mean the encryption key?
If so you can reset the Netgear back to the default settings and setup a new encryption key.
To RESET the router, press the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router for approx. 10 secs until the LEDs flash.
For instrustions on how to secure and configure the Netgear wireless router and the wireless card in the computer/laptop please click on this link :-

I dont know how to lock it with a pass word so lony i can use it


Hard wire your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. Navigate to http://192.168.0.1/ Username:Blank Password:admin by default select the wireless settings tab and enable WEP128 security type in a passphrase and copy down some of the WEP keys generated by the router. Apply your changes. Then connect with your laptop to the network using the new key you have made. For further security go back to 192.168.0.1 turn off broadcast ssid and be sure to change your password and username to somthing else. Your router is now secure. Short of a guy sitting outside your window packet spamming you for two days. However on a home network that should not be a concern in the least.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.

Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.

Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.
