This is the wifi setup page from your Dlink router.

This directs you to the page you see here.

In the first section change the Wireless Network Name. This is the name you give your network so that you can identify it later on. It doesn't matter what you enter here but we recommend that you avoid personal information. To learn more, read our Wireless Names Guide.

Next is the Wireless Channel. This can be changed just like your radio channel. There are up to three channels that don't overlap one another. We recommend that you use one of these three channels, 1,6, and 11. To learn more about these channels, read our WiFi Channels Guide. To change your channel, you will first need to uncheck the box labeled Enable Auto Channel Scan. Then, choose the channel you plan on using for your WiFi in the drop down menu titled Wireless Channel.

The next section is titled WIRELESS SECURITY MODE. First you need to choose the type of security you want to use for your home network. We recommend using the option of Enable WPA2-Personal Security (enhanced). To learn more about the different options available to you, read our WEP vs. WPA Guide.

Below that is the Cipher Mode. You have three different options here. TKIP, AES, or Auto. Our recommendation is the encryption type of AES.

Next is the option of PSK/EAP. Select the option of PSK.

After that is the Passphrase. This is the password you use to gain access to your network. This password is also used in the encryption so it really does need to be strong. We highly recommend using at least 14-20 characters in length. You should also use a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols. To learn how to create a strong and memorable password, read our guide titled Choosing a Strong Password.

Confirm the password by typing it again in the box labeled Confirmed Passphrase.

That's it, just click the option of Save Settings at the top 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.
