I just recently a Netgear N600 wireless usb into my Win7 machine. I have a Linksys Wireless G. It connects fine. Good speeds. But I've noticed when my neighbors' kids come to visit on weekends my speed is very poor. When I set this all up I didn't think I would need a password-I know-not very smart. It has an exclamation point by my signal strength and reads unsecured. Do I have to uninstall everything and start over? I don't want to start a war with the people next door. I just want what I pay for.

Linksys Wireless G
Chapter 3 in the manual
Tells you how to login and once you are in hit the Wireless tab then Wireless Security. Choose WPA2 Personal and give it a pass phrase such as stupidneighbors The default for Key Renewal is 3600 which should be good enough. Once you save the settings it will knock you off and you will need to reconnect. This time it should ask you for a password and you just put in stupidneighbors and it should connect OK. If something happens like your PC wireless doesn't do wpa2 then you can reset it press the Reset button for approximately ten seconds
For the Netgear N600 the instructions are at:
Same idea but they want you to use netgear genie.

RKinner-Thanks-mission accomplished! I was having trouble with some terminology so I called my ISP. They said their router was working fine so they couldn't help me. So I got on live chat with Netgear. They said a tech would call me to help me. All it was was a twenty minute sales pitch. They said I had a problem with Windows drivers.They could fix my problem for $150.00. So I hung up-quickly! I was having trouble logging on to the Netgear router login page. Once I did I was able to secure things. I added 24/7 to the stupidneighbors pw!
