Protecting Your Wi-Fi


Wireless Networking (Wi-Fi) has made it very convenient for anyone to access the Internet via a computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other wireless device anywhere within range of a network’s signal. Every day thousands of people purchase a wireless router and attach it to their home networks. Most wireless routers are shipped with a default network name, default username and password, and no security settings enabled. This allows almost anyone to configure and setup their network within a matter of minutes. However, before connecting to the wireless network, the wireless router needs to be made as secure as possible to prevent unauthorized access.
