There's a couple of easy ways.. one is to give it a name and password to access it. Everyone would see it but can't log into it when it asks them for that info.

Another way is to enable your MAC filter. You can filter out specific MAC addresses, or, you can only allow specific MAC addresses to access the router (that's how I do it at my house). Everyone can still "see" the router, but can't access it.

Turn on the security. e.g. WPA. You'll have a "key" either entered by you, or generated for you.

All these are in the configuration. You just enter in the IP address for the router and log in. It's in the instructions that came with the device, or it'll be on their website as well. it'll be something like

192.168.1.2

basic logins are such as: admin... sysadmin... netgear.. operator...

and the passwords are similar... admin.. sysadmin.. system... password...

again, all that should be in your basic instructions, or on the NetGear site as well for what they are by default. Even if you didn't secure your router, you'd want to change the login ID and password, or at least the password so no one else could log into and lock YOU out.

(if that happened though, you can physically reset to factory defaults by a small reset button generally on the back of the device).

You may need to install the program on one computer if you haven't. After that all you have to do is put in your search bar 192.168.1.1. Then you can look on the left of the pop up window and select either password settings for the router to access the settings and to access the modem. Usually sign in is admin and the password is password. Then you can reset both....but write them down.

How do I key in wifi code/


Depends upon which version of the Android system you have, but generally it goes like this;
Open the SETTINGS menu. If you don't have a settings icon on your home page, you will find it by opening the "APPS" page on your device.
Once in settings, the wireless networks available will be seen in a list on the right hand pane

Tap the name of the network you are attempting to connect to

If it is password protected, a window will open up with the option to type in the password required. The keyboad will automatically run at the same time.

Type in the password, being careful to use the correct case and not adding any spaces or other characters if they are not part of the password. Once the password has been entered, tap the "connect" button. You should ow be connecting to the network, which may take up to a minute or so depending upon how your WiFi router has been set up.

If it still will not connect, the it's almost certainly because the WiFi router has advanced security settings enabled to prevent devices connecting that are not known to the system and you will need to seek assistance from whoever set up the router to enable you to connect to it {:o)

I have a new laptop computer and am wondering how I log on to internet as it is asking for my access/security code?


I assume you are connecting thru wireless or wifi. If its asking for the security code then you have to know the security password for the SSID on that wifi router. Many Wifi routers have security passwords before you can access the internet. If you are connecting to your wireless router then just disbale the security password but will be disadvantageous because other people can connect to your router. Just ask the person for the password who initially setup your wireless router.

I dunno ow to secure my connection with my edimax router


You can read more about WEP and WPA in the following links:
This article explains how to configure WEP/WPA-PSK/Access list on NETGEAR Wireless router (also applicable to access points).
Note:
  • You can configure WEP or WPA. But you cannot enable both at the same time.
  • You can configure Access list and also enable WEP or WPA for additional security.
  • After you enable wireless security features on the router (or access point), you must configure your wireless clients (wireless computers) with matching settings. Your wireless clients will not be able to connect unless you configure matching settings.
  • Its recommended you enable these wireless security settings from a computer wired to the router (or access point).
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 http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (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. n101675_image001.jpg
  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.
