Setting a wpa2 password on Powerline av500


Setting a wpa2 password on Powerline av500

The new apple ios 10 throws up a "security recommendation" that as an open network i should set a wpa pw for netgear.

1) My wifi hub is already password protected.Does my netgear only synch to those with already with my wifi hub password - or is it correct that a neighbour could simply access netgear without a password ?

2) IF my netgear booster is truly an open network, is there an "idiots guide" link that i can follow, to enable me to set a wpa2 password for my booster ?

Any help greatly appreciated !
