EDIT: My sister-in-law came over and secured the network for me using MAC filtering. Thanks anyway.


There are 3 computers in my house, and have a Netgear Router (WGR614). Right now, the connection is unsecured. I have been trying to figure out how to secure the network properly as I think others have been using our internet. I have tried reading articles online and searching forums but have come up empty handed and even more confused. I have read about WEP encryption as well as MAC filtering. Can someone please guide me how to properly secure the network ?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

2.username : admin ,Password : password (unless changed)
3.Click wireless settings under setup
4.Make security as WEP
5.Security type : automatic
6.Encryption strength : 64 bit
7.Put a check mark on key 1 & typein any 10 digit key & apply the settings.
8.Then from your wireless computer try connecting to your wireless network which will prompt you to enter the wep key.Just enter the 10 digit key & confirm the same and click connect.
9.Now you have enabled wep for your wireless network and it's secure.
