Re: wireless security

Go to Netgear's site while the modem is running, check the 'set up' or similar link, and that should walk you through the complete set up and encryption process. If you have a set of numbers, usually groups of three separated by a period, just put that in your search bar.

Wps light blinking

wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure wireless network set up and connections. Some of NETGEAR's products use the name Push 'n' Connect for WPS. To use WPS, your product must support WPS and be compatible with WPA security. WPS can automatically set up a random network name (SSID) and strong WPA wireless security for wireless routers, access points, computers, adapters, Wi-Fi phones, and other electronic devices. WPS lets you use a push button or enter a personal identification number (PIN) instead of manually entering a network name (SSID) and password:
  • Push button. The WPS button is either on the product or a clickable button on a wizard or utility screen.

My husband was given an old Dell laptop and it has a Lynksys Wireless Adapter card in the side, model WPC54G, and I am unable to connect it to my netgear router?

Does the laptop detect the WiFi of the netgear router ? If not, plug a PC to the router and access the interface to ensure that the SSID is not hidden.

If the WiFi is detected, the problem might be with the security key used. Again, in the interface, note down the security key, in the wireless section of the router. Then, when attempting to connect to the WiFi, enter the security key as noted (Capital letters if any, etc).

You might also try to configure the WiFi connection manually, without using the wizard.

Another issue might be conflicting software. If a software is installed by the manufacturer of the WiFi component, it may conflict with Windows' WiFi manager. You will have to indicate to either Windows or the software to NOT manage network connections, then use the other (i.e. if you tell Windows not to manage wireless networks, you will have to use the manufacturer's software)

Where is the wep for it

You can find the WEP or WPA Key settings for your router under the "Wireless" or "Wireless Security" sections in your router settings on your PC. Security must be set to WEP key not to any other type of security setting in order for you to have access to WEP Key information

Settings saved do not match requirements on this computer

Go into network connections on the laptop and select the Wireless Network. Go into properties and find the TCP/IP settings and ensure that the IP address setting is set to Automatic and the DNS settings also. If you have wireless security set on the router you will have to set that up on the laptop as well.

Replace netgear CG814WG with WGR614 Possibile???

CG814 and WGR614 both are wireless modem, with 4 LAN port.
the difference is CG814 use so call "stateful" packet inspection, where WGR614 is using NAT, which is less secured, and easily attacked.
both have spam filer, and you can set restriction as to what website or content of the website.
CG814 should cost more than the WGR814. you should ask the resaller for the difference.

Wireless routers

Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.

You are safe as long as you have all the security measures enabled on your router. What you are seeing is people that are in close anough range that has their own wireless network also. Mine will pick up as far as 5 houses away from where I live at. There are several here. Hope this answers your question?
