The CD-R King 3G-52 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.

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.

This is the status page from your CD-R King 3G-52 router.

You begin on the Summary page of the CD-R-King 3G-52 router. When you want to configure the WiFi settings, click the link at the top of the page labeled Wireless, then Basic below that.

Change the WiFi Settings on the CD-R King 3G-52

wifi wireless
This is the wifi setup page from your CD-R King 3G-52 router.

You should now be on a page very similar to the one you see here. First, the Wireless Enabled box should be checked.

Next is the 802.11 Mode. This is asking what type of wireless devices you are using. 11b devices were made around 1999, 11g devices were made around 2003, 11n devices were made after 2009. Most people have a range of wireless devices. Our advice is to choose the option of 11b/g/n mixed mode.

Below that is the SSID. This is the name you give your network name so that you can find it later when scanning for networks with a wireless device. Go ahead and create a name you like, but avoid using personal information. To learn more about this topic, read our guide titled Wireless names.

After that is the small box called Do Not Broadcast SSID. If you want to hide your network name you just created, check this box. This hides your name from wireless devices that are scanning for networks. Remember that while this hides your name, your network still sends out information and a hacker can find networks whether they are hidden or not.

The last thing you need to change is the Channel. Check and see if you are on channel 1,6, or 11. If you are, then nothing more needs to be done. Everyone should be using one of these three channels. These three channels are the most you can get out of the spectrum with no overlap. Overlap causes a lot of interference. For more info on why you should use only one of these channels, click the link titled WiFi Channels.

Nothing else needs to be changed on this page. Go ahead and click the APPLY button.

Now, click the Security option in the blue bar.

This is the wifi security page from your CD-R King 3G-52 router.

You should now be on the Wireless Security page. First, use the Security Mode to choose the option of WPA2-PSK. The WPA2 is the type of security you will be using and the PSK is saying you are going to use a password to gain access to your network. For more information on all the choices in this drop down list, click the link titled WEP vs. WPA.

Below that is the Encrypt Type. This is asking what type of encryption you want to use while transmitting your data on the air waves. There are three different choices here, we recommend using AES. This is considered the most secure option.

Next is the WPA-PSK Key. This is the password you use to access your network. This password is also used in the encryption technique so it needs to be strong. A good password contains at least one symbol, number, and capital letter. A good password does not contain any actual words found in a dictionary. We recommend avoiding personal information in this password also. For help in creating a strong and memorable password, click our link titled Choosing a strong password.

That's all there is to it, simply click the APPLY button when 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.
