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.

Encryption

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

First, more options will appear. It may or may not be after you click OK. There may be a long list of items or just these few. Either way there are only three or four settings that need to be changed to create a strong network security. These are the:

  1. SSID or Network Name - This is the name you give your network so you can identify it later on. This name needs to be unique. This name is visible to your neighbors (unless you intentionally hide it). Learn more about this in our wireless names guide.
  2. Channel - (This one is optional) It only needs to be changed if you feel you are not getting the speed or reception from your Internet you think you should. Make sure you only use channels 1, 6, or 11. Find out why in this WiFi Channels guide.
  3. Security Mode or Encryption Type - This is the security for your local network. We strongly recommend using WPA2-PSK or WPA2-Personal. They mean the same thing. Learn more about your different security options in our guide titled WEP vs. WPA.
  4. Passphrase or possibly the Pre-Shared Key - No matter what it is called it is the Internet password and needs to be strong. We recommend at least 14 to 20 characters. Learn how to create a strong and memorable password in our guide titled Choosing a Strong Password.

After you have configured these settings you need to click OK to save your changes.

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.
