Netgear Routers & WPA Code- a glimpse

Netgear is renowned for launching the first Wi-Fi Router in the world of routers. These innovative routers are amplified with innovative features that are based on advanced technology. These Netgear Routers also support Wi-Fi Protection Access (WPA). WPA is an essential feature on router as it precludes unauthorized access of people, without having WPA code, to your network via safe encryption techniques.

Where to find WPA code on your Netgear Router?
Generally, WPA code can be accessed from only two places i.e. on your router’s set-up screen or on the computer connected with your Netgear Router.

Steps to find WPA Code on Setup Page:
1. Type 192.168.0.1 into your browser’s address bar & press ‘Enter’.

2. If the above fails then, Type ‘admin’ against username and enter your Netgear Router password against ‘Password’. If you have not customized any password in the past, then just write the word ‘password’.

3. Click onto ‘Wireless Settings’ as available at the left side of Setup page.

4. Find your WPA code as shown on the passphrase box on this page.

Steps to find WPA Code from computer:
Windows, in general, save the code as the computer connects with Netgear.
