Securing Wireless Network: WPA/WPA2 configuration guide

Configuring WPA/WPA2:

1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either or by default.
3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
For Steps 4-9, refer to Figure A below.
4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
5. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box.
6. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
7. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
8. WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
9. Click Apply to save the settings.
