Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to add a security encryption key to your wireless network. In the wireless configuration menu, you should have an option for encryption with options like WEP and WPA.

    Can you add more information about specific Netgear model? Did you go to the Netgear support website and search for documentation on your specific model? In the IT trenches? So am I - read my IT-Trenches blog

    If you have the option in your Netgear - or any wireless AP/router - choose WPA2 with pre-shared keys and use 20+ random characters for the passphrase.

    I think maybe your best bet is to go to their web site, put in the model of your system and download the booklet on it.
