Setting up Password for NETGEAR® Wireless Router
The NETGEAR provides perfect solutions to the users networking options. The routers manufactured by the NETGEAR excel other manufacturer’s devices in their durability and features offered in each device. The NETGEAR provides both the wired and wireless router technologies. The wireless NETGEAR routers offers better networking options to the users without the option of physical medium. Since the routers are the devices that are essential for the computers to connect to the Internet, the user should be very careful while configuring the routers. The user should set a password for the router device to secure the device from the Internet hackers. After configuring the settings upon the router, the user should right click on the wireless settings option in the settings page. Then enter the name of the network (wireless) used by the user in the space provided. Now move down the page and under the security settings option, the user can find the WPA box where the user can encrypt the network by the mouse over functionality. Type the new password when the user is prompted to enter. Click on the 'Apply' button to save the settings.

Check the connections
The router should be configured in a correct sequence mentioned by the manufacturers. Else issues occur with the working of the router even at the occasion of setting the password. The user should read the manual correctly and follow according to the instructions. The connections of the router can be checked with the help of the light indicators on the device. The green light is the indication of the correct working. The router prevents the user from setting the password if the connections are not proper.
Restore the router to factory defaults
If the users find any difficulties with the setting option of the passwords, then the user can choose the reset button option provided with the device itself. This option helps the user to set the router to its factory defaults. The option can also be used by the users if the user forgets the password. The reset option for the password is also available to protect the system from the hackers. Resetting the password in regular intervals of time can protect the system from hacking.
The user should always remember that the username and the password of the router by default is admin and password, respectively. The user is prompted to enter the same while configuring the router. If the user forgot the personally configured password, then use the factory reset option after unplugging all the connections. This can restore the router settings to the factory defaults.
