The CD-R King WR-NET-018-CC 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 CD-R King WR-NET-018-CC router.

You need to end up on the page you see here. The first thing you should change is the SSID. This is the name you give your wireless network so that you can identify it later on. Go ahead and create whatever name you want here, but avoid using personal information. For more on this topic, read our guide titled Wireless names.

Next, find the Channel Number and check to be sure you are on channel 1,6, or 11. These three channels are the most you can get out of the spectrum with no overlap. Overlap causes a lot of interference. To avoid this, use channel 1,6, or 11. For more information on this topic, click the link titled WiFi Channels.

When you are finished with this page, click the Apply Changes button.

This is the wifi security page from your CD-R King WR-NET-018-CC router.

This takes you to a page like you see here. In the drop down list titled Encryption choose WPA2 (AES) if it is available. This is the strongest choice available for home networks. If this router does not offer this, updating your firmware version should fix that. Please read our guide to learn why WPA2 is the best option, WEP vs. WPA.

Next is the Pre-Shared Key. This is the password you use to access your network. This is also used in the encryption method. Create a strong password of at least 20 characters. The longer the password, the stronger it becomes. A good password contains at least one number, capital letter, and symbol. It does not contain any personal information. A good password doesn't contain any words that can be found in a dictionary either. If you still need help creating a strong and memorable password click the link titled Choosing a strong password.

Finally, click the Apply Changes button at the bottom of the page.

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.
