Network Password, changing is a must

In the yesteryears’ Internet world is given a new definition. With network connection coming in to play, the scenario has been altered drastically. With dial-up connection abridging, and Network based connection is flourishing with LAN, MAN, Wi-Fi or WAN etc. But, as we know, development is very fruitful until being taken over by those tech savvy culprits. These network connections specially the Wi-Fi one is very vulnerable of attack.

To prevent these attacks, “Network Password” was introduced. Network Password or key is usually an alphanumeric or numeric only of the form. The Network Password is like a key to a door. Whenever you long to access your Internet connection, you are required to enter your “Network Password”. In order to keep your Network Password from being tracked or followed, one must keep changing them.

Now you may reckon how to do so? It is quite simple and as follows.

Step one: Enter your Router’s IP address or URL in to your web browser’s address bar. By doing so, you can now access to and change any settings of your router. Moreover your computer can now access to and communicate with router and its main page. Keep in mind to use the same computer to access the router’s settings which was used when you installed the router. If you do not know your router’s URL or IP address you can either refer to its manual or check on its official website through some source. Once you enter the URL, either click on “Go” tab of your web browser or press the “Enter” from your keyboard.

Step two: Once you get an access to your router’s main page, you be will then asked to input username and password. If by default username and password was in use earlier, then the same can be entered or otherwise the new one must be entered in the dialogue box. However, if not, then mostly web browsers have default username as “admin” and password as “password”. To be unambiguous about the username and password you can ultimately refer your router’s documentation or its official website. Once you enter the latter you can click on the “OK” tab to continue further.

Step three: Different brands of routers have different page setup, but you are required to access your router’s security settings. Amongst the links available on the main page of your router, there will be an option to alter your “security settings”. Find the link and it will display SSID (network’s name) and two textbox for changing the network password.

Step four: To be on safer side, choose the encryption type and change the network password. Mostly WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) is offered these days or the WPA one. One must choose WPA to create the password of alphanumeric form. One can easily change to desired new password by simply typing the two textbox. Click “Ok” to finish.

Step five: Save the changes being made and log out. After changing the password, you must click on “Apply” or “Save”.

Network Password remains at a threat, if you think the default one is enough. But, with the above steps in pocket, things become a piece of cake for you to gulp.

How to set up a Wireless Network Password

The era of computer networks or laptops is long gone where people used to connect to the web using cabled wires. For the past decade or so, business transactions are conducted, files are shared and information is dispersed through wireless connections. The importance of this system cannot be ignored. However, it’s common knowledge by now that every network or connection may contain loopholes through which unauthorized third parties can access the network. They can not only steal important information (which is very common in businesses), but can also perform illegal operations through your network, putting you at risk against the authorities. Therefore, maximum security should be enabled to avoid anything of that sort.

Instructions to set up a Wireless Network password

Wireless networks should be protected with a strong key or password. Setting them up with a password hard to figure out is a simple procedure.

Step 1: Open the web browser and then type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar at the top. This is normally the default IP Address of the router unless stated otherwise in your router manual. So before taking any steps, it is advised to read the instruction manual.

Step 2: If you were not provided with the manual or have lost it, you can contact the manufacturer’s website or contact the manufacturer. Otherwise, google the manufacturer’s name on the Internet and you will find the correct IP Address.

Step 3: After the IP Address is written in the address bar, press the Enter button. This will take you to a connect box, asking you to enter the Username and password. Again, the Login information will be provided in the instruction manual. However, usually the default Username is ‘admin’ and the Password is entered as ‘admin’ or left blank.

Step 4: The next step will take you to the setup page. Click the ‘Wireless’ tab. Then click on ‘Wireless Security’ or ‘Security’ from the options available. Choose a passphrase and click ‘Generate’. It will generate a long encryption of alphanumeric characters. It must be ensured that they are saved somewhere to avoid future trouble. Save settings after this.

Step 5: It involves checking whether the keys generated will work. For this, right click on the wireless icon. It is on the bottom right corner of the taskbar. Then choose ‘View available Networks’.

Step 6: If your network comes up stating ‘Security enabled Wireless network’, it means it has been locked and secured.

Step 7: Clicking on the Network will open a Wireless Connection Prompt which is where you type in the generated keys. You can confirm this by entering the keys. After confirmation, you will be automatically connected to the Internet each time. There won’t be any need to type the key again.

Although setting up a Wireless Network password is one of the ways to protect the Wireless Network, it is not the only method. Installing Antivirus programs, filtering Mac Addresses, disabling the SSID broadcast and changing its name are some of the other efficient ways of protection against malicious content and hackers.
