This takes you to a page like the one you see here.

  1. Change the SSID. This is the name you create for your network so that you can identify it later on. Be creative but avoid personal information like names. To learn more, click this link.
  2. If you want to hide this network name you have just created, place a check-mark the box next to Disable SSID Broadcast. Understand that while this may hide your name from scanning wireless devices, a hacker can still find hidden networks fairly easily.
  3. Skip down to the Channel drop down menu. Make sure you are using channel 1,6, or 11. To learn more, click this link.
  4. Next is the Wireless Security. Choose the option of WPA. To learn what the differences are, read our WEP vs. WPA Guide.
  5. Below that another set of bullet options appears. For the best security choose WPA2.
  6. Now skip down to the bottom of the page and tick the dot labeled Pre-Shared Key. Then to the right of that, in the PSK String box, enter a strong password. The more random and long your password appears to be the stronger it is. We recommend using at least 14-20 characters with a mix of numbers, symbols, and letters in the password. To learn how to create a strong and memorable password, read our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.
  7. Click the green Apply button when 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.
