WiFi Terms

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.

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.

You need to first enter a new name in the SSID box. This is the wireless name and should be unique. The only thing I recommend is that you don't use personal information or router information in this name. Learn more in our wireless names guide.

The next step is to choose the type of Security you want to use. Our recommendation is to use WPA2-PSK. Learn more in our guide titled WEP vs. WPA.

After that you need to create an Internet password. This will be called the WPA pre-shared key. For helpful tips on creating a strong password check out our Choosing a Strong Password guide.

We strongly discourage the use of WPS. If you need to use WPS we recommend using the PBC method as it's more secure than the PIN method. Learn all about WPS in our guide titled What is WPS.

Finally click the Submit 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.
