Keeping Your Wireless Network Safe

Most home or office computer network have a router with wireless access. The distance a wireless signal can be detected depends on the router’s signal strength and building material used in your house. Standard routers usually provide a signal strong enough for anyone in your home or office. If you have a dead zone on the patio or in the basement, you may need a wireless amplifier or sometime relocating the router toward the center of the building will solve the problem. Here are some of the best practices about wireless security and how to ensure a safe wireless connection.

Protect network access with strong password

Because wireless signals spread in all directions, it's possible for someone living next to you (or in a vehicle near your office) to detect your wireless network. If your network doesn't have a password, anyone can access it. To improve wireless security, you’ll want to create a strong password that uses:

• At least eight characters.
• Letters (including capitals).
• Numbers.
• Special symbols.
Don’t use anything easily guessed (phone numbers, birthdays or street address). Also if you live in an apartment building with many other resident, name your network something other than your last name to make it hard for your neighbors to find out which particular wireless signal is yours.

Data encryption

Wireless networks also have different levels of data encryption. Ideally, look for WPA 2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access version 2). If your router has only WPA version 1, use that. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) was the first wireless security standard and, while better than nothing, is easily hacked.
