What do you mean by lock? lock the unit itself or lock so that only certain people connect to it?

Thats usually pretty easy, Im not familiar with the netgear program, but its possible to do it using the windows wireless utility, by clicking the setup wireless network option, and putting in an key for WPA or WEP protection.

HOWEVER

I did find this and looks pretty complete and easy to follow.
