In order to secure your router make sure your router is connected using an Ethernet cord, you must open your Browser,(Internet Explorer-Firefox or Safari) In the address bar type in 192.168.0.1 or www.192.168.1.1 (depending on the product) This will bring you to your routers configuration.
1.Unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password password
2.Under "Security Options", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length (Then Hit Apply)
4.Now on the computers you wish to connect to over wireless, repeat the process. I hope this Helped

SOURCE: i cant put a password lock on my netgear wireless

Hi, follow the below steps to enable security on the wireless router:

1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari) on a computer connected to the router.
2. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Select security options as 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)'. Set the 'Authentication Type' as automatic. Set the 'Encryption Strength' as 64-bit.
6. In Key 1 type a 10 digit number. Apply the settings.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

SOURCE: Connecting a netgear wireless router to a 2wire

Are the router addresses assigned on the same subnet?
many routers have a base address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 meaning all addresses 192.168.0.? are part of their network.

One problem can be that both routers can be using the same subnet -- not an issue if they are connected to different connection points (such as two different houses) on the internet. However when connected to each other in your house they are confused because they have the same two different networks with the same addresses. -- for slightly different reasons --

For those that want you to connect from one router to the wan of the other you need to assure the base addresses are in different subnets -- assuming the one connected to the internet is addressed as 192.169.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network as stated before is all addresses 192.168.0.?. Change the second router to a base address of say 192.168.2.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network is everything staring 192.168.2.? they are now different and it should work. On the wan side of the router you can assign a unique 192.168.0.? address not in the DHCP range of the first router or accept a dynamic IP address from the first router. The dynamic address is probably the easier and less problematic of the solutions.

For those wanting you to connect to a lan port and ignore the wan port they should also have asked you to turn off DHCP in the second router (where you do not use the wan port) and allow the first to do all the dynamic network address assignments. In this case you could have two DHCP servers on the network competing to assign possibly the same network addresses -- if they have overlapping ranges duplicate addresses could be assigned resulting in device connection issues for those with duplicate addresses. Even in this case you may need to assure the gateway addresses are unique on the network ie of both routers are addressed as 192.168.0.1 the second where the WAN is not used could become 192.168.0.2 (where that address is not in the active DHCP server's assignment range) or 192.168.2.0 (note the DHCP server had better be off or else the empty wan port 192.168.2.0 could become the "gateway" address of attached PCs and since there is no connection there will be no access to the internet.

I hope this helps

It is quite likely either solution could work if all the proper changes were made.

SOURCE: Netgear Wireless Router won't work with my Linksys wired router.

As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?

The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/kw/wpn824/r_id/166

The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.

The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

Netgear wireless router wgr614 not transmitting


Yes changing channel will make a diffeence most of the time for this kind of issue. The reason is there could be multiple routers or interference in that area locking to the same frequency.

Netgear router


You need to find the router password (is not the one you use to access wireless), after you rememeber the password and username you need to open your browser and type the url to access the router, usually inlcuded in the instructions manual.

After doing that, log into the router menu and check your wireless password and settings.

If this is not working, please jard reset your pasword.

Hope to be usefull.,
