The Ubee EVW321B 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 EVW321B 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 EVW321B, follow our Ubee EVW321B Login Guide.
If you followed our login guide above then you should see this screen.
Let's start this wireless setup guide on the Home page of the Ubee EVW321B router. First, you should click the option of geavanceerde instellingen or advanced settings at the top of the page.
This should take you to a page with a list of different options at the top of the page in blue. Click the option titled Wireless.
Then on the left, click the selection of Primary Network under the heading of 2.4GHz.
You should now be on a page similar to the one you see here. First, you need to change the default Network Name (SSID). This is the name you create in order to identify your network when you want to connect to it. Make this something you will recognize. Be creative here but avoid personal information. If you are interested in learning more, check out this Wireless Name Guide.
Below that is the different security options. There are four different choices here. They are WPA, WPA-PSK, WPA2, and WPA2-PSK. For the most secure network you should use WPA2-PSK. To do this, you will need to disable all the security options except WPA2-PSK. To learn more about the different security options, check out our WEP vs. WPA guide.
For the WPA/WPA2 Encryption, we recommend choosing the option of AES.
Next, you need to change the WPA Pre-Shared Key. This is your internet password and should be strong. We recommend using at least 14 to 20 characters here. If you need further help, check out our Password Guide.
The last setting I want you to look at is on the right side of the page. It is titled Automatic Security Configuration. Below that you have the option of WPS or Disabled. We strongly recommend that you choose Disabled. WPS is very insecure and should not be used. Read this What is WPS Guide for more information.
Don't make any other changes, just click the Apply button and you are finished.
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.
