Your Netgear wireless router gives you the option to place a secure password on the device that will only allow authorised access to your computer network and/or Internet connection. While adding a password to protect your network will help keep unauthorised users from accessing your network, you may wish to remove the network access password in order to provide an open Wi-Fi hot spot in your home or business. Wi-Fi hotspots are a popular option for attracting customers to your business, and they can offer convenience within the home if security concerns are minimal.
