How Can I put 2 passwords on a netgear74 router


Why?? It would be much easier to implement multiple profiles (with individual password locking) on the individual computers, and, using windows firewall, you can limit access to specific kid-safe web portals. Just remember to set an administrator password on the system and create limited ( non-administrator) accounts for the kids.
