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.

Encryption

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 Dlink router.

You are now on the correct page. First, find the box labeled SSID. This is the name you give your wireless network so that you can identify it later on. This name should be original but we recommend not using any personal information. To learn more, read our guide on Wireless Names.

Under this is the Channel drop down menu. Use this to choose from channel 1,6, or 11. These are the most you can get out of the spectrum without overlap. To learn more about why you should be using these three channels, read our WiFi Channels Guide.

Now use the Authentication line to choose WPA-PSK. An even better option is update your firmware to allow for WPA2-PSK. To learn about the different security modes, read our WEP vs. WPA Guide.

You are now asked for a Passphrase. This is the same as a password but longer. We recommend at least 20 characters. This password is used not only for gaining access to your wireless network, but for the encryption technique as well. Use a mix of symbols, numbers, capital letters, and lower case letters. Read our Choosing a Strong Password Guide for more information on this topic.

Type your password again in the box labeled Confirmed Passphrase.

That's all there is to it, simply click the green Apply button and 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.
