This is the wifi setup page from your Dlink router.

On this page the first setting that needs your attention is the Wireless Network (SSID). This is the name of your network. Make this name unique but avoid personal or router specific information. Learn more in our guide labeled How to Change your Wireless Name.

If you want to change the channel you would do that next. Look for the Channel (FCC). Open up the drop down list and choose the new channel you want to use. I recommend using only channels 1,6 or 11. Interested in learning why? Read the WiFi Channels guide.

Next, scroll down until you see the Security. The strongest version of security is WPA2. Find out what this is and what your other options are in our guide titled WEP vs. WPA.

Select Pre-Shared Key as the Authentication Method.

Below that is the Pre-Shared Key. This is the Internet password. It is very important that you create a strong password here. It doesn't matter how strong your encryption is if you have a weak password. I recommend using a minimum of 14 characters. This router looks like you need to use 16 characters in four different boxes. Learn how to create a strong password in our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

That's it, when you are happy with your security changes go ahead and click the Apply button at the bottom of 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.
