The Dlink WBR-2310 router is considered a wireless router because it offers WiFi connectivity. WiFi, or simply wireless, allows you to connect various devices to your router, such as wireless printers, smart televisions, and WiFi enabled smartphones.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

When shopping for a VPN, make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • Your VPN provider should have a no-logs policy. This means that they do not keep any logs of any kind.
  • Make sure that your VPN provider has lots of exit nodes all around the world.
  • Check that your VPN will not affect your speed.
  • Verify that your VPN provider uses WireGuard as the underlying protocol.
  • Many people prefer a VPN provider that is not based in the United States.

This is the list of requirements that we used when we were shopping around for a VPN provider. There are lots of free, shady VPN providers out there that we looked at and dismissed.

Based in Panama, using diskless servers, and with over 6,100 servers in 61 countries, we can safely say that NordVPN satisfies all of these requirements.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

Once you've set up your NordVPN account on multiple computers and enabled Meshnet, you can seamlessly access all of your devices as if they were on the same network. You don't even have to log in to your router. It's very simple.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

This is the wifi setup page from your Dlink WBR-2310 router.

Once on this new page, you need to change the Wireless Network Name. This is the name you create to identify your network. You can enter anything you want here, but avoiding personal information would be a good idea. To learn more, read our Wireless Names Guide.

Next is the Wireless Channel. Your WiFi channel can be changed just like a radio or television. Make sure you use a non-overlapping channel. The most you can get out of the spectrum is three non-overlapping channels, 1,6, and 11. Make sure you use one of these channels. To learn more about this, read our WiFi Channels Guide. To change this channel, you may need to uncheck the box labeled Enable Auto Channel Scan. Then use the Wireless Channel drop down menu to choose the channel you want.

Now, drop down to the Security Mode menu. There are several options here and if you want to know what they mean, read our guide titled WEP vs. WPA. Our recommendation is the option of Enable WPA2 Wireless Security (enhanced).

After that is the Cipher Mode. Your options here are TKIP, AES, or Auto. We recommend the most secure option of AES.

In the PSK/EAP menu, choose the link of PSK for home networks.

The Passphrase is next. This is referring to the password you use to gain access to your network. We recommend using at least 14-20 characters in the password. Use a mix of numbers, symbols, and letters in this password. To learn how to create a strong password that is still memorable, read our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.

Retype this password in the box labeled Confirmed Passphrase.

Click the option at the top of the page labeled Save Settings.

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.
