    I set up a Netgear wireless network for my home a couple of years back. At the time, I didn't install using a password. Now that the kiddies have gotten older, I am wondering if there is a way to add a password now that I can go back and change whenever I want.

    Thanks.

    You can add an admin password to both the router (password needed to make changes to the router config) and a Pre-Shared Key to access the network, if you are using WPA-PSK (I hope. If you're using WEP, change it soonest). The PSK part is the network password.

    The manual or help files for your particular router should spell it out - I have a Belkin, and as the functionality is identical, the choices are in different sections and different orders.


    Maybe if you post the Netgear's model # there is an MR member with the same or similar model that can answer your questions in more detail. :)
