On this page, the first thing you'll probably do is set an SSID. This may also be called BSSID. Whatever it's called, it's the same thing as your Network Name. This can be whatever you like, however, due to security reasons we highly recommend avoiding the use of any personal information. For more on this topic be sure to visit our Wireless Names Guide.

Next, or at least somewhere on the page, should be the Channel drop down list. This should be set to either 1, 6, or 11. Why are these the best options? Read our WiFi Channels Guide to find out.

This takes you to a new page.

Begin by setting the Network Authentication to WPA2-PSK. This option will provide you with the strongest security. To learn more check out our WEP vs. WPA Guide.

After that you'll need to set an Encryption Key PSK. This will be your network password and can be anything you like. However keep in mind that a strong password contains no personal information and is 14-20 characters in length. For more help be sure to take a look through our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Lastly be sure that the WPA Encryption is set to AES.

That's it! You're done. Just don't forget to save your settings before closing 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.
