How to Secure Your Wireless Network

Here very good news for the wireless network is that it is not had to make the wireless network secure, which will both prevent others from stealing your internet and no one will theft your data. And no one can easily access your computer through the wireless network without your permission.

Here a few simple things that you should secure your wireless network:

Step 1: First you need to open your router settings page

Now access your wireless router’s settings. Often you can do this by typing “192.168.1.1” into your web browser. After that enter your current username and password for the router. This thing is the difference in every router, so you need to check it in your router’s user manual.

If you have lost the printed manual that came with your router purchase. then you can use google to find manuals for most routers online.

Step 2. Create a unique password on your router

After logging into your router, the first thing you need to change your default password to make more secure your networks.

You can change the password from the Administration settings on your router’s settings page. The default values are generally admin/password. This will prevent others from accessing the router and you can easily maintain the security settings that you want.

Step 3. Must change your Network’s SSID name

It is necessary to change you’re the SSID (or Wireless Network Name) name because usually, it is pre-defined as “default” or set as a brand name like e.g. Linksys. It is a good idea to change the SSID name of your network. Don’t use your name, home address or other personal information in the SSID name.

Once this is set, you will always be sure that you are connecting to the correct Wireless network even if there are multiple wireless networks in your area. This setting is usually under the basic wireless settings in your router’s settings page.

Step 4. Must Enable Network Encryption

Encryption makes the more secure wireless network. There are several encryption methods for wireless settings, including WEP, WPA (WPA-Personal), and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access version 2).
