There are so many hackers are online and they target not only unprotected password users but also password protected users. So I would suggest to you. Your device or whatever online stuff must be secure, either your personal device or your home broadband network. So be protected yourself from all things.
First of all, we talk about how to manage the password in home network, if you are a new user or have ever purchased a new router recently. It shouldn’t be difficulty either, now hardware devices are making easier not only for technical users but non-technical users also. There are advanced routers available in the market. When you take the new router then clearly mentions with labeled on that to make it easier for users. Networking manufacture made it easier with its devices mesh based wifi system like google wifi, Jio wifi, and Eero.
To Connect Router With PC
If you have attached everything which is required for router ports first you will have contact to service provider to get connected online. This should be very simple. There are following steps:
- Turn off your modem,
- Unplug the modem’s Ethernet cable from the PC,
- Connect that cable to the WAN or internet port on your new router,
- Power on your modem (wait for a minute or two),
- Next power on your router (wait for a minute or two),
- Now use another Ethernet cable to connect the PC to your router’s LAN port, and
- Turn on your PC.
To Access the management console:
PC and router physically connected, here you can customize the routers’ configuration console. Here is given some steps
- Launch your browser;
- Enter the router’s IP address, which will look something like 192.168.0.1, into the browser’s address bar and press Enter.
- You will see the router’s login screen asking for the default administrator username and password. After you supply those credentials and press Enter, you should be looking at the management console.
To configure the IP address with DHCP:
Now you have to get into LAN configuration.
- Go into the router’s management console and look for a heading like LAN Setup (or something similar). Here you will see your LAN’s IP address and subnet mask, along with a section for the DHCP server.
- Assign a range of IP addresses for the DHCP server to use. Assuming your router’s IP address is 192.168.0.1 and you wanted to assign 50 IP addresses to the DHCP scope, you would set the Starting IP address to 192.168.0.2 and the Ending address to 192.168.0.51.
To Be Activate Wifi and set the password:
Everything has been done now you have to set the password. It’s last options to encryption. So I recommend to choose wpa2- psk. It’s higher security of wireless whereas wep is vulnerable to brute-force attack. WPA2PSK contains the numeric, alphabetic, and numeric. For eg: #Rost@12.co
