Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router
I would reset the unit and start from scratch, evidently some variables have been entered and WE do not know what they are, so start over with a clean slate. If you are going to encrypt your network, I recommend that you do, you need a usb drive to save your settings to, this makes it easier to add other pc's to your network.
I believe Netgear uses a Network Wizard to generate encryption codes, I would also suggest changing the default channel to something else, I am quite sure you are not the only person using Netgear in your neck of the woods (unless you are really deep out there?) this will help prevent any conflicts with other networks. Also change the default password to something you can remember.

Wireless routers are used to connect computers into a network without running network cables throughout your home or office. Netgear wireless router settings must be changed using the router's Web-based interface. Any computer that is "hard wired" with a network cable to the router, rather than on a wireless connection, can be used to access the router. From the Settings menu, options such as "Encryption," "Network setup details" and "Passwords" can be customized.
On a computer that is connected to the router with a network cable, open any Web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. In the address bar, type "192.168.0.1" (without the quotes) and press "Enter." This will bring up the login prompt for most Netgear wireless routers. If that doesn't work, try "www.routerlogin.net", "192.168.0.5", or "10.1.10.1" until the login window appears.
Type "admin" in the Username field, type "password" in the Password field and click "OK." If the password fails, try "1234," "Password" with a capital "P" or "admin". Once you enter the proper credentials, the settings screen will open.
Make any required changes to the settings. Under Security section, it is possible to specify a new username and password for added security. Once you have saved your changes, close the window, and the system will automatically log you out.
