The Ubee DDW365 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.
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.
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 should almost definitely pick WPA2 for your networks encryption. If you are unsure, be sure to read our WEP vs WPA guide first.
To get started configuring the Ubee DDW365 WiFi settings you need to login to your router. If you are already logged in you can skip this step.
To login to the Ubee DDW365, follow our Ubee DDW365 Login Guide.

After you've logged into the Ubee DDW365 router you should be brought to the Home page. To start off click Wireless near the top of the page. From there click Radio located in the left hand sidebar.

That's it for this page. Be sure to save your changes before moving on.
Now click Primary Network on the left hand side of the page.
Start off by setting a Network Name (SSID). This can be anything you want it to be, however keep in mind that a strong password consists of 14-20 characters and includes no personal information. For more on this topic be sure to visit our Wireless Names Guide.
Now set the WPA2-PSK option to Enabled. This will provide you with the strongest security. To learn more check out our WEP vs. WPA Guide.
Set the WPA/WPA2 Encryption to AES.
After that you'll need to set a WPA Pre-Shared Key. This will serve as your network password and can be whatever you like. However, bear in mind that a strong password consists of 14-20 characters and includes no personal information. For more help be sure to take a look at our Choosing a Strong Password Guide.
Lastly, set the Automatic Security Configuration on the right hand side of the page to Disabled. Why? Read our What is WPS Guide to learn more.
That's it! You're finished. Just don't forget to click Apply to save your changes.
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.
