Is your wireless network secure? Many wireless networks are completely unprotected making your network vulnerable to unwanted attacks.
What encryption method should I use?
- WPA2 – Wi-Fi Protected Access II is a security protocol developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to secure wireless computer networks.
- Whenever you setup a new wireless router, always ensures that any default passwords are changed. This refers to the actual Wi-Fi default password as well as the Admin management interface.
- Keep passwords complex! A mix of upper case, and lower case letters, and numbers is a good place to start
Keep an eye on your device list
- Most routers will allow you to view a list of connected wireless devices. It is good practice to periodically check to see if there are any erroneous devices connected to your network
