No, you do not need to enter a security code to get on the internet.
You have to use an ethernet cable to connect the wireless router to your ADSL modem.
Your wireless router should first be configured with an IP address that will allow it to communicate with the modem.
However, if it works you should configure a security code on your wireless router to prevent others from connecting via your wireless without permission.
This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem.
2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem.
3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router:
'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces'4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled.5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID.6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key. ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.
Is this a four port device? Please tell me what cables you have in the back of the router. There should be at least ....
1 x ADSL 1 x PSU (External power)
If you are connecting via wireless you do not need ethernet cables. If you want to use wired ethernet you would only need one CAT5 (or similar spec) between one of the spare ports on the router connected to the eth0 port on your PC/Laptop.
Fire up a DOS window on the PC and type "ipconfig -a". This should report that the PC has a valid IP address from the router in the format 192.168.0.x. If so you should be able to ping the router.
If *this* works then you should be able to put the IP address into a browser and get the admin screen up.
Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.
Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:
1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.
2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.
