Step 4: Configuring the wireless security settings on your Actiontec GT704WG gateway
Make Internet security a priority! To make sure we do all we can to protect your information. Using the strongest network security available will go a long way to secure your home network and information against unauthorized access. Verizon strongly recommends that you upgrade to WPA2 encryption, which provides the highest level of network security available today.
Please note that some consumer electronics manufactured before 2006 may not be compatible with a router using WPA2 encryption, so you may want to consider upgrading or replacing your devices with ones which are compatible with WPA2. If you use devices not compatible with WPA2, Verizon recommends upgrading to WPA to provide improved security over WEP.
