The Ambit U10C022 router is considered a wireless router because it offers WiFi connectivity. WiFi, or simply wireless, allows you to connect various devices to your router, such as wireless printers, smart televisions, and WiFi enabled smartphones.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

When shopping for a VPN, make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • Your VPN provider should have a no-logs policy. This means that they do not keep any logs of any kind.
  • Make sure that your VPN provider has lots of exit nodes all around the world.
  • Check that your VPN will not affect your speed.
  • Verify that your VPN provider uses WireGuard as the underlying protocol.
  • Many people prefer a VPN provider that is not based in the United States.

This is the list of requirements that we used when we were shopping around for a VPN provider. There are lots of free, shady VPN providers out there that we looked at and dismissed.

Based in Panama, using diskless servers, and with over 6,100 servers in 61 countries, we can safely say that NordVPN satisfies all of these requirements.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

Once you've set up your NordVPN account on multiple computers and enabled Meshnet, you can seamlessly access all of your devices as if they were on the same network. You don't even have to log in to your router. It's very simple.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

This is the wifi setup page from your Ambit U10C022 router.

On this page you first should change your Network Name (SSID). This is the name that identifies your network from others around you. Don't include personal information in this name. For more information on this subject check out our guide titled Wireless name.

The other thing that should be checked on this page is the Channel. In the United States there are only 11 channels to choose from. In these 11 channels, there are three that don't overlap with each other. Overlap causes interference so everyone should use one of these three channels, use channel 1,6, or 11. For more information on why you should only use these three channels, check out our guide called WiFi channels.

After you click the Apply button at the bottom of the page, click Security in the left sidebar.

This directs you to the Wireless Privacy page.

In the center of the page, but to the left there are four drop down menus. Choose WPA2-PSK and Enable it. WPA2 is the strongest security choice available today. For more information on that topic, check out our guide titled WEP vs. WPA.

Down a little from that, Enable the WPA/WPA2 Encryption.

Next is the WPA Pre-Shared Key. This is the password you will use to access your network. Do not skip this step. Your password is extremely important to the security of your network. It should be as long as you can make it, we recommend no less than 20 characters. Don't use any personal information. Don't use any word that can be found in a dictionary. Do use symbols, capital letters, and numbers. For help creating a strong and memorable password, check out our guide entitled How to choose a strong password.

Don't change anything else on this page, just click Apply and you are finished.

Possible Problems when Changing your WiFi Settings

After making these changes to your router you will almost definitely have to reconnect any previously connected devices. This is usually done at the device itself and not at your computer.
