WiFi Terms

Before we get started there is a little bit of background info that you should be familiar with.

Wireless Name

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.

Wireless Password

An important part of securing your wireless network is choosing a strong password.

Wireless Channel

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.

On this new page:

  • Find the Channel drop down list and pick the appropriate channel. Make sure you use channel 1,6, or 11. To learn why you should only use these three channels, read our guide titled WiFi Channels.
  • Now drop down to the next section titled Interface Profile. Place your cursor in the box labeled SSID and enter a new name for your network. It doesn't matter what you enter here but we recommend avoiding personal information. Learn more about this subject by reading our Wireless Names Guide.
  • Next is the Maximum number of connected devices. Enter the number of devices you plan on having on the network at one time. It can be any number between 1 and 32.
  • Below that is the Security. The best option is WPA2-PSK. If this option is not available, we recommend updating your firmware to allow for it. The next best option is WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK. Read more about this topic in our guide titled WEP vs. WPA.
  • Now you need to enter the WPA-PSK. This is just asking for the password you use to restrict access to your network. This password should be strong, between 14-20 characters. Try and avoid real words. Use symbols, numbers, and capital letters. To learn more about this, read our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.
  • The last thing you may change if you want is the WPA encryption. For the best encryption use AES.

That's it, just click the Submit button and 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.
