How To Secure Your Router

Securing your wireless router is an important step in ensuring your Internet connection is protected from others' unauthorized use. This will help you control who is using your Internet connection and how much bandwidth is being used, meaning you're less susceptible to computer viruses and an expensive bill from excessive bandwidth use.

Instructions for the following router brands are below; if your router is not listed, please refer to your user's manual, or call us and we will assist you.

 

Linksys

  1. To begin securing your Linksys wireless router, open your favourite web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, etc) and type the following into the address bar: http://192.168.1.1
  2. And press Enter. You will be presented with a box that requires a username and password. If you have not changed the default username and password on the router, enter the following: Username: [blank], Password: admin
  3. If that does not work, try: Username: admin, Password: admin
  4. You will now be presented with a Link-Sys webpage. There are tabs at the top such as Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, etc.
  5. Click on the Wireless tab. Right below it, not a centimetre from the word Wireless, you will see "Wireless Security". Click on that.
  6. Now in the whitespace below, you should see a bunch of boxes. Fill them in with the following information:
  • Security Mode : WPA Pre-Shared Key
  • WPA Algorithm : AES
  • WPA Shared Key : [A password of your choice that is at least 8 characters long. Password can contain numbers and letters]
  • Group Key Renewal : 3600 seconds
  • Write down that information so you don't forget it.
  • Click the Save Settings button. 

You may now close the web browser. Your router is secure, so the next time you try to connect to it wirelessly, (using a laptop or other wireless device) you will be required to enter the WPA Pre-Shared Key that you entered into the router.

 

D-Link

  1. To begin securing your D-Link wireless router, open your favourite web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, etc) and type the following into the address bar: http://192.168.0.1
  2. And press Enter. You will be presented with a webpage that requires a username and password. If you have not changed the default username and password on the router, enter the following: Username: admin, Password: [blank]
  3. If that does not work, try: Username: admin, Password: admin
  4. You will now be presented with a D-Link webpage. On the left-hand side, click on the Wireless tab. In the whitespace to the right, under the Home tab, have the following settings:
  • Wireless Radio : On
  • SSID : [The name of your Cybernet SSID - don't change this if there is something there]
  • Channel : 6
  • Security Mode : WPA-PSK
  • Cipher Tpe : AES
  • WPA Password : [A password of your choice that is at least 8 characters long. Password can contain numbers and letters]
  • Write down that information so you don't forget it.
  • Click the Save Settings button. 

You may now close the web browser. Your router is secure, so the next time you try to connect to it wirelessly, (using a laptop or other wireless device) you will be required to enter the WPA Password that you entered into the router.
