There is only room in the spectrum for up to three channels that do not overlap, therefore everyone should use one of these three channels, 1,6, or 11.

The Wireless Security Mode is the first thing you need to check. We recommend using the mode of WPA2-Personal. To learn why this is the best option, click the link titled WEP vs. WPA.

Next is the Encryption. The best choice is AES, it is considered very secure.

The last thing you need to change is the Pre-Shared Key. This is the password you use to access your network. This password needs to be strong in order to thwart attacks. Do not use personal information in this password, it is easier to guess than you might think. Don't use any words that are found in a dictionary, these types of passwords are cracked easily due to programs designed to check for words. Create a password of at least 20 characters. Use some symbols, numbers, and capital letters in this password. For more on this topic, click the link titled Choosing a strong password.

Finally, click the Save Settings button near the bottom of the page. Congratulations, you did it.

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.
