Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Wifi is turned off. How do I turn it on?


Stuart,

Some NetGear routers have a wireless button to enable/disable the wireless feature. Look for a wireless LED on the front of the router, if it is off check the back of the router for a wireless button. Press the button for 5 seconds to turn the wireless feature on/off. If that doesn't work you may need to login to the router to enable the wireless feature. Here's a snipet from the NetGear knowledgebase:

1. Type http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 in an Internet browser - some routers use the first URL while others use the second. If one of these does not bring you to the router's login screen, see If You Cannot Log on to Your Router.
2. Enter the user name and password; the defaults are admin and password unless you have changed them. NETGEAR strongly recommends changing the default user name for your network security.
3. Check Wireless Settings > Advanced > Enable Wireless Router Radio. For newer routers with a Genie interface, click on the ADVANCED tab > Advanced Setup > Wireless Settings > Enable Wireless Router Radio.
Note: You will need to uncheck two separate Enable Wireless Router Radio box if your router is dual band. One for the 2.4GHz and one for the 5GHz network.
I hope this helps.

My router is suddenly not working. The internet, modem, router and the wired lights are on, but the wireless and security lights aren't on and I can't connect from my laptop wirelessly.


check the wireless settings of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled.
If enabled then try to change the wireless channel of the router.
if that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router.

Is the DSL or Cable modem connected to the Wireless router?
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

AFRAID OF SOMEONE IS LOOKING MY COMPUTER


Very, very highly unlikely. It doesn't work like that.
Netgear is probably the manufacturer of your wireless card, and the rubbish software they give you is freaking you out.

Router won't connect to wireless


Can you clarify the question.

Is there a modem (cable or verizon) connected to your router; if so you might need to turn off your modem, wireless router and computer for five minutes. Then turn on the modem, wait 5 minutes, turn on the wireless router wait 5 minutes, and then boot your computer. Also, make sure your computer's network card is set to DHCP, which automatically assigns your computer an ip address from the wireless router.
