I need to turn off the security on a Netgear router, what are the risks?

Why do you want to "turn off the security"?

And what specific aspects of the router security are you referring to?

Hi, I can only connect an Internet Radio with the wireless security disabled.

I think if you consult the full instructions for your radio you may well be able to enable it to receive programmes with your router security in place

Radio make and model?

Forgive me, to answer the actual question you asked then, yes, if you have security on your computer etc that is adequate

But router security systems are a good way to stop trouble
