WiFi Terms

Before we get started there is a little bit of background info that you should be familiar with.

Wireless Name

Your wireless network needs to have a name to uniquely identify it from other wireless networks. If you are not sure what this means we have a guide explaining what a wireless name is that you can read for more information.

Wireless Password

An important part of securing your wireless network is choosing a strong password.

Wireless Channel

Picking a WiFi channel is not always a simple task. Be sure to read about WiFi channels before making the choice.


You should almost definitely pick WPA2 for your networks encryption. If you are unsure, be sure to read our WEP vs WPA guide first.

router Wi-Fi channel ssid mode
This is the wifi channel page from your Bell CellPipe 7130 router.

This takes you to a page like the one you see here. First, next to Multiple SSID, choose 1.

Now, skip down to Auto Channel Select. If you wish the router to automatically choose your wireless channel for you leave this On. If you want to choose your own channel, choose Off.

Below that is the Channel. If you have chosen to select your own channel, be sure to choose channel 1,6, or 11. These three channels are the most you can get out of the spectrum without overlapping. Overlapping channels cause interference. Completely sharing a channel does not due to software built into routers. For more on why you should only be on these three channels, check out our guide titled WiFi channels.

Now, skip down to below the blue line. There should be a box labeled SSID. This is the name you give your network so you can identify it later on. When creating an original name, don't include personal information. For more on this topic, check out our guide labeled Wireless names.

The next thing that needs to be changed is the Authentication. There are several options here and if you would like a description of the differences in these authentications, read our guide labeled WEP vs. WPA. The best choice here is WPA2PSK.

Below that is the Security Type. There are several choices here. Do not use WEP, this can be cracked within minutes. The three choices that are left are TKIP, AES or both. TKIP is older and has some flaws making it vulnerable. We recommend the newer and more secure AES.

Finally, you need to fill in the box labeled WPA-PSK > Preshared Key. This is the password you use when you need to access your network. This password is also used in the encryption so it needs to be strong. You should create at least a 20 character password. Don't use any personal information here, this is much easier to guess. Avoid using any words that can be found in a dictionary, these are easy to crack with the right program. Do use symbols, numbers, and capital letters in the middle of the password. If you need more help creating a strong and memorable password, click our guide titled Choosing a strong password.

Click the blue button labeled Apply Changes 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.
