Answer:

Securing your Netgear wireless router protects your home network from intruders and is an important stage if you want to stop others accessing your files, folders or Internet connection. While all Netgear routers act slightly differently, you can generally secure the Wi-Fi using a password (or new password if the default one is set), using the same method for each. If you have lost the original documentation that came with your Netgear device, you can use these generic Netgear instructions to secure your Wi-Fi network.
Step 1: Launch an Internet browser and type "http://www.routerlogin.net" into the address bar.


Step 2 : Enter the router username and password when prompted. The default user name is "admin". The default password is "password".


Step 3 : If you are using the Smart Wizard, on the left-hand navigation bar, Select Wireless Settings under Setup (shown below).



If you are using the genie user interface, click on the ADVANCED tab. Choose Wireless Setup below Setup. Make sure to change the mode of the network to "Up to 54Mbps" so that WEP will appear under Security Options. For dual-band routers, you will need to configure the 2.4GHz wireless network only. This mode is not available on the 5GHz wireless network settings.

Step 4 : Under Security Options, select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). From Security Encryption (WEP) > Authentication Type, select Automatic. From Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, select 64-bit or 128-bit. From Security Encryption (WEP) Key, select Key 1 and enter a key. If you selected 64-bit under Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, then enter 10 hexadecimal digits for your key.


Step 5 : If you selected 128-bit under Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, then enter 26 hexadecimal digits for your key. Save or keep note of these values. They will be required to connect wirelessly to your network.


Step 6 : Click Apply to save the settings.
