Make = Netgear but which one?

Usually it's as simple as a setting in the router. I would check the manual for you and call out the page number but I can't (no model given.)

So in short, get to your router's setup screen and change the WiFi security to WPA2 and there should be your opportunity to set the WiFi password.

as I get home and will see if I can find anything on my router.

Thank you

RangeMax WPN824. Not sure if this is what you need but all I saw on there.

Thank you so much for your help!
