  • Once you go wireless, you should encrypt the information you send over your wireless network. Encryption scrambles the information you send into a code so that it’s not accessible to others. Using encryption is the most effective way to secure your network from intruders.
    Two main types of encryption are available for this purpose: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). Your computer, router, and other equipment must use the same encryption.
    other practices to secure your network are as follows:-
    1.Change the name of your router from the default.
    2.Change your router’s pre-set password.
    3.Turn off any “Remote Management” features.
    4.Log out as Administrator
    5.always set strong passwords.
