Thats usually pretty easy, Im not familiar with the netgear program, but its possible to do it using the windows wireless utility, by clicking the setup wireless network option, and putting in an key for WPA or WEP protection.


I did find this and looks pretty complete and easy to follow.

Connect to the default I.P. (usually of the router via your internet browser. Then log into said router. (If this is your first time accessing your router username will be "admin" and password will be "password". Enable WEP. You then need to create a Hex for your WEP phrase. So basically type your password in and the router will generate a hex. That is your password.

Forgot pasword router

did you change the password ?

Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.

Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.

Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.

Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.


Log in to the router.

Routers typically have the IP address "" or "" for their configurations.

When connecting to the proper router IP address, a password box appears. The default login for Linksys routers is no username and "admin" for the password.

The default login for most other routers, including D-Link, Netgear and Belkin, is "admin" for the username and "password" for the password.

View or change the wireless password.

This is either a WEP key or a WPA/WPA2 password.

Some routers allow the direct viewing of the password, while others mask the password.

If the password is masked, the only option is to change the password to something else.

Connect to the wireless network with either the revealed or changed password.

Recover the System Password

Hold in the reset button on the router for 10 seconds and disconnect the power.

Continue to hold the reset button for 15 seconds while reconnecting the power.

Release the reset button and wait 60 seconds.

The router has now been reset to factory default settings.

Log in to the router as in the previous section.

Hope this helps

I have a netgear router and connot find my WEP #

ethernet from the router to the browser...goto address bar type in
a pop down login appears login/user= admin
password= password. now you are in the config page of the netgear. look for wireless settings tab and click it. scroll down towards the bottom and you will see a code in key1 ( the bubble should be filled in green). that is your encryption code right there in key1. also the maybe something typed in the PassPhrase box, which i would also right that down. once you have written it down close out of the browser, and remove the ethernet cable. now its time to view available wireless conncetions. so try to use the key 1 code first, you should be good to go ....if the key 1 doesnt work try the passphrase.

How do I set up a wireless connection to my laptop

This is pretty straight forward because the Netgear, provided it is a wireless model, has its wireless transmitter on by default.  So, you just need to login to the router (via any web browser--Firefox, IE, Safari, etc) and enter "" (without the quotes) and hit return/enter.  In the user name enter "admin" and "password" for the password (unless it was set to something else by your dad when he first bought it).  In the Netgear router interface, select wireless and make sure that it is turned ON and it will say what the SSID is (you can change it if you like to any word or words without spaces).  The SSID is the name of the network that you choose to login with when you connect to the wireless.
Next, you need to purchase a Wireless PCI card.  If it is a PC then the choices are many, but this is economical and easy to install.  Just go here:
If he needs a wireless router as well, this one is economical and fast:

All in all, it will be about $60 for the set, much cheaper than the chain stores would charge and this is an N standard network NOT a G, so it is as fast as they come.
As for Macs, the same thing applies for the wireless routers and the Macs usually come with built in wireless cards.  
Use the setup software that comes with the router to set things up and you should be all set.  Enable a WEP or WPA security password for the network if possible to keep out unwanted riff-raff. Sincerely, Jeff

I have an arris tm602gct and cannot connect thru my netgear

Can you connect if you are directly wired into the router?

You may want to try using a ball point pen and pressing the reset button on the back of the arris. Let it reboot and try again.

Some netgear routers come with the wireless disabled out of the box, so you need to be hard wired when you run the CD or if you try to connect through your browser

Cant login to router

When in doubt double check your work. You held the reset button down on the back of the router for long enough for the lights to go out then start blinking again? Then you went to in your browser and tried admin for your login name and motorola for your password? If you did all of that and it's still won't accept your login try to power the router off for at least a minute by pulling the power cord and make sure you clear your browser cache before trying to access the default gateway address in your browser again.
Hope that helps!

i think there is no need to do bridge mode.

all u need to do is to login to your router and then to clone mac address.

that should fix it and if not then just call your ISP (internet provider).

and ask them to register your mac address.

that should fix your issue.
