- Firewall configurations
- Wired equivalent privacy
A wireless router is an external system device that accepts an incoming Internet connection from a cable modem and converts it into a local wireless signal, allowing systems in the area with wireless adapters to connect to the Internet. There are times when an open network is desirable, like temporary networks for wireless networks that are protected from the private cabled networks through the use of routers and firewalls. However, most wireless networks should be protected from eaves dropping through the use of encryption protocols that are available with most Wi-Fi devices.
NETGEAR is a router device that is used to connect different systems to the Internet. NETGEAR routers are devices used in home office networks and these routers are programmed with firewall capabilities. A firewall prevents unauthorized access from the Internet to the internal network. The NETGEAR wireless router firewall also enables access to the internal network using port forwarding. The router works as a gatekeeper for the internal network. By default, the NETGEAR router firewall prevents all incoming traffic.
Wired equivalent privacy is an Internet protocol used to protect many local area networks. To connect to a wired equivalent privacy protected network, an encrypted wired equivalent privacy key is needed. The unencrypted wired equivalent privacy can be received by logging into the local area network’s router administrative part with administrator options and checking the show characters check box inside the wired equivalent privacy key that is being used. When a system attempts to connect to the LAN, a security key window would appear.
