Please tell the world the brand name and model number of your router and your operating system version.

RTFM, my friend.  If you didn't get a hard copy, a PDF version is probably on the CD that came with the router.  If not, you can download it from Netgear, just select your exact model here:

In essence, you want to log into your router's web admin interface and change the wireless configuration for a new wireless password.

There is a sticky at the top of this board Labeled how to secure your router. Click on that and it should show you everything that you need to know.
