How to Secure Your Network Connection

Securing your network connection is necessary if you want to protect all important data information such as bank account details and passwords. You can restrict internet access by following some simple steps.

•Step 1: You have to access the wireless router settings page. This is usually done by typing in your web browser’s address bar as the IP address. If this does not help you, you may get your default user name and default IP address along with the password details from the user manual of your router.

•Step 2: After logging into the router, you have to access the wireless tab on the page. You will be asked to enter the security page and then set the Authentication Type to WPA. For the wireless access of your network, enter the KEY, which is the new password.

•Step 3: The wireless network name is kept as default or is set according to the brand name of the router. You have to change the settings by visiting the router page settings page. After changing the name, you can connect to your wireless network, even though there are several other networks in your area.

•Step 4: You may try encrypting your wireless signals. Choose the wireless settings that help you in encrypting your network, such as WPA, WEP, WPA2 and other settings. On your router’s configuration page, open the wireless security page and enter the pass phrase for accessing the network. The pass phrase should be a combination of alphabets, numbers and special characters.

•Step 5: Reduce the range of your wireless signal; change the router mode to 802.11g.
