    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more
    often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Superb work!

    Thanks so much for this! Got a tangent problem:
    I did this via my home office desktop, then connected via my smart phone. The phone seems to keep getting kicked off of the connection, which I thought might be due to the heightened security. So, I set the phone to stay on this network, even if the signs drops, and I got a notice stating that thos wireless network (the one I just set up with this how-to) may not actually provide an internet connection, but will stay connected per my settings. The phone’s internet is now slow and keeps dropping. Shouldn’t having entered the password give it full, uninterrupted access? Please help.

      Sometimes the security can interrupt the wireless connection in a device, but all devices now support WPA2. One thing you can try is to change the channel in your routers settings for the wireless network. You won’t need to change anything on the device, as the change is transparent, but sometimes other wireless devices can interfere with a specific channel.

    Thank you. I’m in my 70′s and am very timid about confronting internet problems. I’ve had an unsecured site for several years and haven’t had the courage to change it..Your directions were absolutely perfect.. I’m now secure…The instructions couldn’t have been more clear.

    I did all of that. But when I click save settings, it doesn’t work! I tried restarting the computer and router. Nothing works!

    Ok So I used Admin as the user name and then changed the user names to something else I was taken back to the login page. I used the username and password I selected and it did not work. I tried Admin again and that did not work what do I do now please help.
    Thank You

    A few things need to be done to ensure a wireless network is “secure” :

    The WPA/WPA2 password should be a minimum of 14 characters, and should contain at least one uppercase and one lowercase letter,one number, and one special character like a dash/slash/dollar sign/etc… This will make it nearly impossible for common tools to brute force the password.

    Changing the SSID to something non-common will help negate the use of rainbow tables to crack the password.

    An absolute MUST is to disable WPS in the router, due to an exploit that allows a hacker to very easily recover the WPA/WPA2 password.

    Just my 2c.

    I tried to use “admin” as the password, but it didn’t work for me.
