2. Open a Browser, Type the DEFAULT GATEWAY on the address bar of your Browser. It will ask you for a username and password. (Refer to the manual of your router or post a reply so that i can provide you the username and password of your router)

3. Go to the Wireless Settings Page of your router. Look for the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize it so that you can easily remember the details.

4. Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the Network Key to make it secure.

Wat is ssid


SSID is the name of the access point or router through which you connect to the Internet wirelessly. If you are at a WI-FI hot spot where a free wireless connection is provided, then you will not have to worry about entering a SSID. When setting up a wireless connection with a router in your home or business, you will be given or asked to create your own SSID. To be able to connect to the Internet wirelessly, it will be necessary to know the 32-character password that is the SSID.

My PSP internet connection not supported to my access point.


The SSID is the NAME of your Routers connection. So you need to know your WiFi connections Name, That's the "Access point" Security, Is IF you assigned a WEP/WAP KEY, when the router was first setup. If NO Key is set, that is what it means "Unsecured",
You need to get a Netgear router manual, for your exact model, it shows all in pictures how to do it.
