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.


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 wifi setup page from your Digicom Michelangelo Wave router.

On this new page, the first thing you should do is check what Channel you are on. Find the Channel box and choose the country in which you live, and to the right of that should be a drop down list of channel numbers. Be sure you are using channels 1,6, or 11. There is only room in the wireless spectrum for up to three channels that don't overlap each other. To learn more about why you should only use these three channels, read our WiFi Channels guide..

In the next section, use the SSID Index to choose the number 1. Then below that in the box labeled SSID enter a name you want your network to have. This name will just distinguish your network from the others around you. We do recommend that you don't use personal information. To read more on this topic, read our Wireless names guide.

Next is the Authentication Type. The best choice is WPA2-PSK. To learn why this is the best option, read our WEP vs. WPA guide.

At this point a new box should appear asking for the Pre-Shared Key. This is the password you use to access your network. This password needs to be strong, at least 20 characters. Don't use any real words in this password. To learn how to create a random looking password that is memorable, read our guide titled Choosing a strong password guide.

Nothing else needs to be changed on this page, just don't forget to click the SAVE button before exiting.

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.
