The KPN Experia-Box 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.

Use a VPN Instead

Have you considered using a VPN instead of forwarding a port? For most users, a VPN is a much simpler and more secure choice than forwarding a port.

We use and recommend NordVPN because not only is it the fastest VPN, it includes a new feature called Meshnet that makes forwarding a port no longer necessary for most applications. With NordVPN Meshnet, you can connect to your devices from anywhere in the world, completely secure, over a highly encrypted VPN tunnel.

When shopping for a VPN, make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • Your VPN provider should have a no-logs policy. This means that they do not keep any logs of any kind.
  • Make sure that your VPN provider has lots of exit nodes all around the world.
  • Check that your VPN will not affect your speed.
  • Verify that your VPN provider uses WireGuard as the underlying protocol.
  • Many people prefer a VPN provider that is not based in the United States.

This is the list of requirements that we used when we were shopping around for a VPN provider. There are lots of free, shady VPN providers out there that we looked at and dismissed.

Based in Panama, using diskless servers, and with over 6,100 servers in 61 countries, we can safely say that NordVPN satisfies all of these requirements.

NordVPN is the fastest VPN!

Once you've set up your NordVPN account on multiple computers and enabled Meshnet, you can seamlessly access all of your devices as if they were on the same network. You don't even have to log in to your router. It's very simple.

Every time you click on one of our affiliate links, such as NordVPN, we get a little kickback for introducing you to the service. Think of us as your VPN wingman.

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.

This should take you to the page you see above. All you need to do on this page is find the Channel. Make sure you are using channel 1,6, or 11. To learn why you should only use these three channels, read our guide titled WiFi Channels.

Tick the Apply button. Then in the left sidebar click the option of Security.

This is the wifi setup page from your KPN Experia-Box router.

This particular page deals with the security for your internet connection. Near the top of the page are the words WPS Function. This page does not allow you to turn this option off. We highly recommend disabling the WPS if possible. WPS is an easy way in for someone wanting to use your local internet without your permission. Please read our guide titled What is WPS. The next page will allow you to turn this setting off.

Below that is the type of security you want to use for your network. For the most secure choice pick the option of WPA2 Only. If you want to know why this is the most secure option, read our guide titled WEP vs. WPA.

In the Authentication section, choose PSK. This stands for Pre-Shared Key. You will enter the password or PSK on the next page.

Now click Apply at the bottom of the page. Then in the left sidebar click WLAN.

Once on this new page, you have the option to turn off WPS. Use the WLAN button on the device drop down list to choose deactivated.

Next is the SSID. This is the name you create in order to identify your local network. It doesn't matter what you enter here but we suggest avoiding personal information for maximum security. To learn more about the SSID, read our guide titled How to Change your Wireless Name.

Below that is the Network Security. Click the radio dot labeled Passphrase (min 8 characters).

Now you need to enter the Passphrase below that. This is the PSK also called the password. This password is entered into any wireless device that will connect to your internet. For optimal security create a password that looks random of at least 20 characters. Include as many symbols, numbers, and capital letters as you can. We have more tips in creating a very strong password, just read our guide titled Choosing a Strong Password.

That's it, just click the Apply 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.
