Logon to the router as described in the instructions.
Go to the wireless security section and select WPA-2 encryption/security.
Set a strong password. The stronger the password the more secure you WiFi network will be.
This will help you make a strong password: http://www.pctools.com/guides/password/
Your wifi devices should remember the password so you should only have to enter it once for each device.

My local public network is asking for a security key number


Probably as is open and with no security some one change the wireless setting adding security to the router, Reset the router to factory settings and add a password to reconfigure the router not to the wireless connections, in that way people can still use the public internet but cant configure the router because dont have the password.

I cant find the password for my netgear


If you have changed the default password, you need to reset the router to the factory settings to get in with the default user and password (user admin and password as password, or if that doesn't work try 1234). Note that you will lose the ISP settings and wireless settings when you reset the router.

Here's a video on how to reset the router to the factory default settings: http://kbserver.netgear.com/media/flash/training/Troubleshooting/NG_WGR614V9Router_TS_LostPassword.html

Do not know know password for wireless internet


Hi
Go here and download the manual http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/Netgear-WNR2000-manual.pdf
You will need to reset the router or change the password in the router 1. To change the password, goto Internet Explorer 2. In the address bar type 192.168.1.1 3. Press enter key 4. YOu should see a box with username and password fields. 5. username is admin 6.password is password 7. These are not the wireless passwords but the access password to get in the router. 8. Once in the router interface on Internet Explorer; goto the wireless sections and change the password there.
To reset the router WARNING: This will reset all the settings to what it was like when it came fresh out of the box. You may need to know some other settings. Restoring the Default Password and Configuration Settings You can restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1. To restore the factory default configuration settings: 1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see "Back Panel" on page 5). 2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.
Failing this, please refer to the manual, page 29 onwards
All the best now

I forgot my password and cant' get into the Control Utility. How do you reset the password?


Doing a hard reset to the router will reset the router to its factory defaults...

Keep the router powered ON...Press and hold the reset button on the router for 10 to 15 seconds... The lights in the router will go off and come back. It says the router was reset completely...

The internet and wireless settings on your router will go to its factory defaults...You will be required to reconfigure your router...

Netgear wireless router wgr614?


If you cannot login to the router's configuration URL, then you can reset the Netgear back to the factory defaults by powering up the router and press the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router until the LEDs turn on, then release the RESET button and wait for the router to reboot.
Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the router open an Internet Browser and enter the router's configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default password = password.
You can now configure the wireless settings, Eg. SSID, encryption etc.
To secure your wireless from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

All the lights or on.On my router.But I cant it on


A couple times a year I have to reset my WRT54G back to the factory defaults. There are a couple of methods to do this.

Reset Button Note:
Resetting the router to the factory defaults will delete any changes you have made to the router, including any security settings. This should be used as a last resort.

The first method involves simply pressing a button located on the back of the router. The image below (courtesy of Linksys) shows where the button is located.
linksys-reset.png To reset your router, use the following steps:
  1. Press the reset button for 30 seconds. The settings should now be returned to the factory default settings, meaning any changes you had made would be deleted.
  2. Open up your Web browser and enter “192.168.1.1? in the address bar.
  3. For the login, leave a blank ID and enter “admin” as the password.
The router has now been reset. You'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.
Through the Web Administration Pages The second method involves logging into the Web administration pages of the router. Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:
  1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router. By default, the address is “192.168.1.1?.
  2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
  3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
  4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
  5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.
The router should now be reset to the factory defaults. Again, you'll need to go back in and set up any passwords or wireless security you had set up before.
