The Flying Voice G801 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.
Before we get started there is a little bit of background info that you should be familiar with.
Your wireless network needs to have a name to uniquely identify it from other wireless networks. If you are not sure what this means we have a guide explaining what a wireless name is that you can read for more information.
An important part of securing your wireless network is choosing a strong password.
Picking a WiFi channel is not always a simple task. Be sure to read about WiFi channels before making the choice.
You should almost definitely pick WPA2 for your networks encryption. If you are unsure, be sure to read our WEP vs WPA guide first.
To get started configuring the Flying Voice G801 WiFi settings you need to login to your router. If you are already logged in you can skip this step.
To login to the Flying Voice G801, follow our Flying Voice G801 Login Guide.
If you followed our login guide above then you should see this screen.
This is the Product Information page of the Flying Voice G801 router. From here, click the tab near the top of the page labeled Wireless.
Under that is a horizontal list of links in blue. Pick the option labeled Basic.
On this page, place your cursor in the box labeled SSID. This is the name you create in order to identify your network. It doesn't matter what you enter here. We suggest avoiding personal information. Read our Wireless Names Guide for more info.
Next, find the Frequency (Channel), make sure you use channels 1,6, or 11. Read our guide titled WiFi Channels for more information.
Click the Save button.
Next, click the Wireless Security choice at the top of the page in blue.
On this page use the SSID choice list to choose the SSID you just created on the last page.
Next is the Security Mode. Read our WEP vs. WPA Guide for more information. Use the drop down list to pick the best security option available. We suggest using WPA2-PSK if it is available. If not, you can update your firmware to allow for the better WPA2-PSK option.
Now choose the WPA Algorithm. We recommend the most secure option of AES.
The last thing you need to change is the Pass Phrase. This is the password you use to access your network with this router. We recommend using a minimum of 14 characters. Don't forget you can use symbols and numbers as well as letters. For more information, read our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.
That's all there is to it, just click the Save button before you exit.
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.
