She set the passwords on the equipment when we got it as she was the one who bought the stuff for her computer at the time. I does hurt the ego to have to call her about anything I can't figure out on my own

MR814 v2 is the model.

Re: Wireless Router Security?


hehe.

plus a hard reset will prevent having to ask the g/f.

press/hold RESET for 15-ish seconds until all lights go off and flash, then release.

all settings restored to when you opened the box ...glen

Re: Wireless Router Security?


That got me there Glen and everyone else who helped, THANKS so far admin and password worked.

i'm guessing i go under "wireless settings" and add an encrypted key (WEP) to make it secure?

Re: Wireless Router Security?


make sure you have the latest firmware on that router.

see netgear.com support page.

latest/new firmware should add WPA
