We continue with the security, but this time on the router. The Wi-Fi is certainly something that we use often, and inevitably increasing. Therefore, we keep it safe as it is like an open door to viruses and thieves of personal data such as passwords credit card or social networks. Many people think that by having the safest encryption password or having long from the factory has a secure router, but it does not.
Before we start with the tutorial learn some important concepts:
1.SSID: Service Set identifie, is something of a mix of alphanumeric characters with a maximum of 32 digits identify the function of any wireless connection. Speaking in silver, is the name of the Wi-Fi.
2.Puerta default link is the link between two wireless networks. Typically, it is the IP of the main router, which is usually 192.168.1.1.
To change any router settings we must first know the door quite easily link something, ie the IP of the router. We can easily find out from Windows by following these steps:
1-Open Run from the Start menu or press Windows + R keys simultaneously and enter cmd
2.When is opened we write ipconfig interface.
3-Look where you put Default Gateway; is usually 192.168.1.1.
How to increase security

The kind of security we use is essential. Normally we have several security types to choose from:
No Security: This type of "security" need not explain it. Get the free Wi-Fi at the mercy of whoever who set it up. Could not someone just come and take away bandwidth, but that person could deny us access to us or get a password; plus it could happen to us at any time any virus.
WEP is a type of low-level security. It's the kind of security that may violate anyone. Even a child or someone who does not understand much about computers with the right software could find out.
WPA: Medium security level. More of the same, it's pretty easy to use.
