Username = admin
Password = password
For older devices, password = 1234

If he has changed the password, he wil have to reset via reset on the back otr underneath I cannot remember exactly where it is.

This will reset everything back to default so he may have to reconfigue the netgear with regards to security etc

hope this works

quick google brought this up
Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel

Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)

1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
2. Release the button.
3. Wait for the router to reboot.
4. Log in with the default password.

If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
5. Unplug the router's power.
6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
8. Wait for the router to reboot.
9. Log in with the default password.

but for some reasons , it says its 10 digits long , i looked on the net for him earlier and the websites all said ether 1234 or password but he is sure its telling him 10 long , i gave up and gave him the number for net gear

Tell him to try his phone number, which is what a lot of people change them too, me included when I set up peoples wireless networks, so when they ring me and ask for the password I can tell them :-D

Security Code isn't a technical term, could he possibly be refering to the wifi password? If so then it may be printed on the bottom of the machine, it is on my dg834g.

Bang on the money.

Its the WPA or WEP code. It will be on the bottom of the machine.

OR, get a PC, and plug into the router using ethernet.
Open up IE/Firefox, whatever
Type in the IP address. - Usually somethign like, 192.168.x.x - A quick check on google will reveal this.

It should ask you for the username and password which is what is detailed above in the first reply. Then, there will be a tab for the security and will show the 10 digit code.
