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.

Encryption

You should almost definitely pick WPA2 for your networks encryption. If you are unsure, be sure to read our WEP vs WPA guide first.

This is the wifi setup page from your Huawei router.

You should now be on the page you see above. First, use the drop down menu titled Channel to choose the channel you want to use. Make sure you use either channel 1,6, or 11. Learn why by reading our guide titled WiFi Channels.

Next scroll down the page and find the box labeled Name (SSID). This is the name you give your local network so that you can identify it later on. It doesn't really matter what you enter here but we suggest avoiding personal information. Learn more about the SSID by reading our Wireless Names Guide.

After that, look for the drop down box titled 802.11 Authentication. The best choice is WPA2-PSK if available. If not, we recommend updating your firmware to allow for this better security. Learn why you should be using WPA2-PSK by reading our WEP vs. WPA guide.

Directly under that is the setting of WPA Encryption. This needs to be set to AES.

Finally, change the WPA Pre-Shared Key. This is the password you use to grant or deny access to your network. We recommend using at least 14-20 characters. Make sure to use some symbols, numbers, and capital letter. Learn more about creating a strong password by reading our guide titled Choosing a Strong Password.

Before you exit, click the Apply button.

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.
