    depends on the hardware, but usually it's in the router/access point's setup screen. On an Airport Extreme or Express, you access that through the Admin Utility -- I'm not on my Mac right now, but I believe it's on the first screen, upper right where you can set the security level (WEP, WPA1, WPA2, etc.).

    You then have to set it on the receiving computers as well through the Network Connections screen (you type in the password for the connection) for Airport systems. Non-apple receivers would likewise have a password entry point when you select which network you want to access.

    you should be able to access the router utility by accessing the router through its IP address (something like 192.168.1.0). Otherwise, go to Netgear's site and find the manual for your router.
