This is the wifi setup page from your Conceptronic router.

On this new page, the first thing you need to do is Set Wireless Mode. We recommend choosing the radio button of Mixed(n/g/b). This mode is basically asking how old are the devices you are connecting to your network. N devices are the newest, and B devices are the oldest. Most of us have a range of device ages.

Now find the box labeled SSID. This is the name you give your home network so that you can distinguish it from others around you. To learn more about this, read our Wireless names guide.

Next is the Channel. You just need to be sure you are on channel 1,6, or 11. These three channels don't overlap one another. Read our WiFi Channels guide for more information.

Below that is a box titled Set Wireless Security Mode with seven different choices below it. We recommend choosing WPA2-PSK. To learn why this is the best choice, read our WEP vs. WPA guide.

Set the Cipher Type to AES. This is the most secure option.

The Key Type should be set to ASCII.

Next is the Passphrase. This is the password you use to access your network. This is also used in the AES encryption so you should make is strong, at least 20 characters. A strong password contains at least one symbol, number, and capital letter. It should not contain personal information that could be guessed. You should also avoid using any words, these types of passwords can be cracked much easier. To learn more about this, read our Choosing a strong password guide.

Below that is the Key Renewal. This is how often your router makes a new key based on your password. This can be set to what ever you like between 300 and 1800 seconds.

The last thing you should do is Disable the Wi-Fi Protected Setup. WPS is a very insecure way of connecting a wireless device to your network. We strongly recommend disabling this option. Please read our What is WPS guide for more information.

Click the Apply button.

Congratulations, you are done.

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.
