WiFi Terms

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

Wireless Password

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.

A new box appears on the page labeled Wireless Settings.

There are five settings you can change in this box. The first is the SSID. This is the wireless name you use to identify your network. Learn all about it in our wireless names guide. We recommend avoiding personal information or router information in your new SSID.

The next drop down box is titled Security. The strongest option you can choose is the WPA2-PSK option. If you are interested in the other options read our WEP vs. WPA guide.

Below that you need to enter in the Internet password. This is the WPA pre-shared key. It's important that you create a strong password here of at least 14 characters. The more random it looks the stronger it is. Learn all sorts of helpful tips in our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

Under that is the WPS. This is an insecure way of accessing your network. We do not recommend using this. Find out more in our What is WPS guide.

If you need to use WPS for whatever reason make sure to use the PBC option. It is more secure than the PIN method.

That's it, simply click the Submit button to save your changes.

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.
