Hi Joshan,
Hi I got your issue, to enable the security on your router , you have to log into the interface of the router you have.

Inorser to log into the interface of your router, you have to check what is the default gateway address of your comp , to check that

click on start menu---> Go to RUN--> Type "cmd" and click ok---> You will get a command prompt window , in that type "ipconfig" and enter, you will get the default gateway address

Then open your browser, ex: Internet Explorer
In the address bar type in the default gateway address ex:192.168.2.1 and enter
It will show your router interface, choose the option security in the interface.
there You can select any security option you have in your router ethier WEP/WPA PSK.

Thanks,
prema

72955587_xs.jpg Wireless routers connect computers to a network without the need for network cables.

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 "Encryptionicon1.png," "Network setup details" and "Passwords" can be customized.

      On a computer that is connected to the routericon1.png 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.

How to configure router to other computer without internet?


For a computer to connect to router there is no need for internet.
If your router is active and functional any computer in its range can be connected with wires by ethernet port or wirelessly with wireless card.
If your computer has wireless card it will recognize the Linksys router and you can connect automatically unless you have a password set for wireless security.
If you need to log on to the router and change settings first step is connect your computer to router wireless or wired then open web browser like Internet explorer or firefox. type 192.168.1.1 this will open a dialogue box for user id and password leave user id blank and type admin in password line. once you are router page you can configure settings on router.
If you need help with setting up router post the question again! good luck

Sorry but i forget my password


The default user name for this model router is admin and the default password is password. The default SSID is NETGEAR. You can verify your router settings by going to Click the wireless settings link and verify that the router settings are the same as those in the wireless computer. NOTE: The settings are case-sensitive - NetGear will not work in place of NETGEAR.

I forgot my password, so i can't set up my new laptop.


The default username for this is "admin" and the password is "password"

You could try those first.

If not then you'll need to reset the router by holding the little button on the back in for approx 30 seconds while the unit is powered on.

This will likely wipe your internet details and disconnect your internet, so if you need to do this make sure you know what your settings are first.

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop


If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type 192.168.1.1 and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.

I am setting up a Linksys Wireless G Router and can't find how to set up a password


You can get to the router settings menu by entering 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1. in internet explorer. It should ask for a password and default is usually "admin". Once you are in the settings for the router you can configure the security settings for WEP. When you activate it you will create a password that all computers on the wireless network will use to connect to the router.
