Netgear WGR614 54Mbps Wireless Router

  1. Begin setup of your Netgear Wireless Router by first reading the instructions in the included manual, and following their guidelines for plugging in and initializing the access point. The first few steps in this guide should coincide with the information found in the manual, however we will follow up with important information on how to secure your wireless access point.
  2. After powering up the router, use an ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the ports on it marked 1 through 4. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type into the address bar and press enter. This will take you to the Netgear Smart Wizard welcome page, click OK to begin the configuration. The router will attempt to detect the type of connection you have and the next message you receive should be Dynamic IP (DHCP) Detected, click Next once you see this.
  3. Next you will enable the wireless capability of your router. In the dropdown box for the region where you are located select United States from the list. On this screen you should also change the Wireless Network Name (SSID) from its default value to something unique so that your Base Station will not be confused with another. Click Next.
  4. You should now see a message confirming that your connection is working and wireless is enabled. However, your are not secured yet. Read the notes and click Done. Then direct your browser to to continue the configuration. A window will pop up prompting you for your login and password, enter admin for the username and password for the password, then click OK.

  5. Once you have logged in you will see the main configuration page (shown above). Now click on the Wireless Settings at the left of the page. In order to password protect your wireless network select the WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) option under the Security Options and then under the Security Encryption (WEP) section that appears, select 128 bit next to Encryption Strength. Choose a password between 6 and 8 characters and type it into the Passphrase box under the Security Encryption (WEP) Key heading. Then click Generate. Finally click Apply. You may also select WPA encryption, however not all network cards support this, so check your documentation first.
  6. Next look for the Advanced section heading on the left side of the page and click on this Wireless Settings section. Disable the SSID broadcast option by unchecking the second box in this section and then click on the Setup Access List button.
  7. On this page (seen below) check the box to Turn Access Control On and click on the Apply button to save this setting.
  8. Now click on the Add button, this will display a Wireless Card Entry heading. This is where you will choose a name and enter a MAC Address, also known as Physical Address, for each computer that you will be using to connect to your wireless network. If you don't know how to get this information follow the steps here. Once you have finished, click the Apply button.

    Creating an Access Control List will prevent unauthorized computers from using your connection.

  9. Finally click on the Set Password link on the left of the page under the Maintenance heading. Change the default password for accessing your wireless router setup pages by first typing the old one, password, into the appropriate field and then entering a new one into the New Password field and confirming it. This should be a different password than the one you setup for WEP encryption, but should also be atleast 6 to 8 characters in length. Click the Apply button.

How are you going to look into without help. Make sure that you have a good ignition spark at the plugs, so check the plugs, the wires, the coils , Nowone one side of the coil you will get +12 and on the other side a pulsating +12 , this impulse should be very good toproduce a high intensity spark.
now check your feul pressure and flow, check timing /tuning
your car must start without any issues.

Locking my router so only Household usage

Usualy small home routers are managed using a web interface, so there is not need for a special software. I say "usualy" because you did not specify the brand and model of your router, so I am assuming that you router behaves like the others.

First, you will need to find the IP address of your router. In order to do that, in Windows XP, click Start > Run and type "cmd". On the command line, type "ipconfig". Look at the "Default gateway" line, this should be the IP address for your router.

Then open a web browser such as Internet Explorer and type that IP address in the address bar. The web interface should open. It may ask you for a username and password. The username is usualy "admin" but the default password may differ from one manufacturer to another. Try leaving the password field empty. If it does not work try "admin" also as the password.
If it still does not work, having the brand and model of your router will be necessary to find the default password.

Everything should be explained in more details in the user manual of your router, if you still have it. It you don't, it may usualy be downloaded from the manufacturer support web site.

Router lock

Setting up your wireless network to encrypt the data so intruders can't see it involves choosing from several methods. Take a look at pages 49-55 of this on-line manual (link below). It will give you more information than you ever wanted to know about choosing an encryption method and entering the "keys" on your router. If you find this terribly confusing, just choose either WEP64 or WEP128 and ignore the other sections. There are specific notes for MAC users on pages 53 and 55. Hope this helps!
