    Problem accessing wireless Netgear AP and securing

    Hey guys,

    I've been having some trouble. All I want to do is secure my wireless internet so that others can't connect other than those with the password.

    I have a Linksys BEFSR41 router and a Netgear WG602 Access Point.

    A buddy of mine gave me this NETGEAR AP page to follow the instructions of:

    (can't put the link because I'm a new member...basically it's an instruction page for the Netgear setup page)

    The only thing is, when I type in the 192.168.1.1 into the web browser, it brings me to the settings for the Linksys Router, NOT the Netgear AP.

    So my question is, how can I get to the settings for the Netgear AP so I can follow the instructions in that link and set up the password for the wireless?

    Thanks so much!

    Really? That's it? What's the point of the router than?

    i gave the answer so you could get into the AP and set it up, once setup plug the router back in, you can change its default IP if there is a conflict.
