In order to update your router’s security settings follow these easy steps:

Step1 (Log in to your router)

To log in to your router run Internet Explorer (or your default browser) and enter the IP address of your router (192.168.2.1 by default) in the address bar and hit Enter. To find your IP address in Windows press the windows key and the key “R” at the same time. In the new window, type “cmd” and hit Enter, then type “ipconfig” and hit Enter. Now, under “Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network settings” you should have Default Gateway followed by an array of numbers devided in 4 groups by dots. That is your router’s IP.

Step3 (Wireless Settings)

Hide SSID Settings

To hide your router’s SSID, Click BASIC >WIRELESS. This will display the Wireless Settings where you can configure your wireless network. First, type in the name of your wireless network in the Wireless Network Name box. To hide the SSID (Service Set Identification) check the “Invisible” option next to Visibility Status. This will hide your wireless network from the clients searching for wireless connections and thereby protect your network from hackers.
