Step 4: Configuring the wireless security settings on your D-Link router
Security is an important issue when using a wireless home network. Because radio waves are used to transfer information between your networked computers, it's possible for hackers to intercept this information. Taking advantage of the security features built into your D-Link router can make it much more difficult for hackers to access your personal information.
The level of protection required for your home network is dependent on the type of information stored on your home network. You have to decide what level of protection you need and how you are going to provide that protection. This section provides information on the most basic steps to increase the security of your home network. It is not intended to include a description of all the possible security features provided by the D-Link router.
Take a few minutes now to improve the security of your home network by changing the initial settings of your D-Link router to provide the level of protection you need. Periodically, you should maintain the security of your home network by changing your router password, SSID, and WEP key.
