what browser are you using?

this normally is a browser generated popup or overlayed warning message, if you continue on and enter the username and password it should let you in, it shouldn't stop you. the netgear usually defaults to admin for the username and either a blank, empty password field or the word password itself. i believe the message may be related to security 'improvements' in ie7 regarding basic authentication, ie7 now warns you...

i do not get that in firefox 3.6b6 or in ie8 when connecting to my netgear.

This sounds like a message from the Web Browser, not the router. The browser doesn't realise that the IP address is an internal private address on your own network and the server it is referring to is actually your router.

It has nothing to do with your wireless security, so I wouldn't worry about it

Tried it in ie8 and firefox still won't let me in, if I keep trying it freezes and I have to open task manager to get rid of it.......

I'm not worried, its just that I wanted to check the wireless password to get my grandsons laptop connected, as I have a duel boot with XP I had to shut down and reboot into XP, just a bit of a pain
