Configuring WEP:

1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
2. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either or (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.
The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
3. Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu.

4. Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
5. Select Authentication type as Automatic and Encryption Strength as 64-bit (or 128-bit) - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
6. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) and Apply the settings. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
Hope that helps.....

Cant find security key

If it's your router, you made the key. If it's not your router, stealing internet is a federal crime.
If you cannot remember the key then reset router to factory defaults.

I lost my password. how can i recover it?

1: You must have a computer that is already connected to your network. Should this not be an option you can simply connect straight into your router with an ethernet cable.

2: Right click on the network notification icon in your taskbar (this is assuming you have followed step one)

XP - Select "Status"--->select "details"

Vista - Select "Connect to a network"--->right-click on [your network]---> select "status"---> select "details"

What you are looking for the IP address of your router labeled "IPV4 Default Gateway". For example mine is the same as most defaults ""

You want to open a web browser (Internet explorer, Firefox (my personal preference), Netscape, etc.) and type the exact same number into the address bar. This should bring up your wireless router's setup page. Because of the amount of different hardware, this is not exact, but you will most likely be looking for a tab labeled "wireless" and then "security" or "wireless security".

You need to make sure that all of the above match between the two devices:

1. Security Type
2. Encryption Type
3. Network Security Key
4. Key index
5. Your SSID (network name) of course =)

With WEP or RADIUS the security key will be the corresponding transmit key. Anything else and you just need to make sure all the words and number match up.

Now then, Simply follow the steps for getting to the router page so you can find out what your set up actually is and compare it to your current connected network's properties
(Vista - Select "Connect to a network"--->right-click on [your network]---> select "properties"---> select "security" tab.)

Cheers if it helps! and cheers if it doesn't but you tried anyway!

How to initially configure the access point

Should work right out of the box. Are you asking what type security you should set up?

There is password security, turn off the broadcast security, MAC address security and others.

May I suggest Network Magic to help you set up and maintain your network.
