If your wireless network seems to be running a bit slow, there may be a reason. Millions of consumers who pay for wireless internet are also paying for other people to connect to the internet. If your wireless internet is not secure, other people may be tapping into your wireless connection via their laptops, desktops, iPods, etc. How do you secure your wireless network?
Making your wireless network secure is relatively easy. You need to access the routers control panel. The router should provide you with a user name and then you select a password. This means any time someone wants to access your wireless network they need the password to access it. If someone brings their laptop to your house, they will need the network password to get on the internet. Some may also require an encryption password as well.
This insures that your wireless network is secure from people trying to connect for free but also keeps your information secure. Hackers can hack into a computer easier that is on an unsecured wireless network than a computer that is on a wireless secured connection.
It is important to use a password that is original and not easy to guess and not to forget your password. If you forget it, it’s very costly to get a computer guru to retrieve it and sometimes impossible.
Be sure your information and connection is secure!
