wifi wireless
This is the wifi setup page from your BEC Technologies router.

On this new page, the first thing you need to change is the ESSID. This is referring to your wireless name. This is the name you give your wireless network so you can distinguish it from others around you. Create a name that does not have a personal information in it. Check out our guide on the topic if you want more information, Wireless names.

Next is the ESSID Broadcast. If you choose Disable you are hidden from the wireless devices when they try scanning for available networks. Remember this does not mean you are completely invisible. A hacker has all the tools necessary to scan and find hidden networks. This is more like a camouflage, hidden but not invisible.

Skipping down to Channel ID, you may need to change this. This only needs to be changed if you are not on channel 1,6, or channel 11. In the United States there are 11 channels to choose from. Of these 11 channels there is only room in the spectrum for three channels that do not overlap each other, channels 1,6, and 11. For more information on why you should only be using these three channels, check out our guide titled WiFi channels.

Nothing else on this screen should be changed, click the Apply button at the bottom of the page. Then, click Wireless Security in the left sidebar.

On this page in the drop down list pick the Security Mode you want to use. There are several different choices here. We strongly recommend using WPA2-PSK. This is the strongest security protocol available today. Check out our guide titled WEP vs. WPA for more information.

Beneath that is the WPA Shared Key. This is the password you use to access your network. We recommend using a strong password of at least 20 characters. The longer the stronger in this case. Avoid using any personal information here. Avoid using any words that can be found in a dictionary. We do suggest using symbols, numbers, and capital letters within the password. For help in creating a strong and memorable password, check out our guide titled How to choose a strong password.

That's all that needs to be changed on this page, click the Apply button when you are finished. That's it, you are done!

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.
