Re: NetGear CGD24G8D

either someone has setup with default encryption key..

these units is ISP provided (branded firmware) unit so they may have default encryption that they provide to customer or you just need to login the unit and change it.

even login user/pass and is not same as netgear default so suggest contact ISP support

Re: NetGear CGD24G8D

likely those are WAN side of mac address so it will show different ..

mac address is not encryption anyway so you are even remotely close to WPA2 anyway

default password does not sounds like WPA2 related.. default password are related to router interface

CALL YOUR ISP and ask for help
