HOW TO MAKE HOME NETWORK SECURE
Nowadays we see technology has advanced in such a vast manner, all the work from buying a grocery item to multinational business deals are being done online. Which implies internet has become a very vital essential? There are two kinds of network i.e. Private network/home network and Business/Public network.
Getting an internet has become a very easy task. All you we have to do is pick up a phone get in touch with ISP (internet service provider).The setup of internet is very user friendly. For example if you have a netgear router, all we have to do is to enter the default IP of the router or to make it more easier there is setup link i.e. mywifiext.net which takes you to the setup page and the steps that are followed by are very easy. Wherein case your house is a very big and you need to get your network extended, it is very simple. All we have to do is to get a range booster and get into the setup link which is again mywifiext.net and follow the instruction for the setup. Same goes for other router and range booster respectively.
Securing of Home network is very important. Strong password is highly recommended which should include and upper case letter and other signs such as hash tags, underscore etc. We can always change the password if needed by logging into the setup link mywifiext.net or mywifi.net (taking the example of netgear product). People tend to think encrypting a strong password makes your network completely protected which apparently is not an assurance because there are various ways by which the network can be compromised. For example by responding to any third party mail or fraudulent websites, any downloading from any third party websites etc. There are countless ways by which devices or network can be compromised.
There are many ways to prevent and secure the Home network. One should always make sure the Firewall of the router is turned on. You need not have to approach any technician for it. Yes, that is true. All you have to do is put in the Ip of the router or router setup link which is mywifiext.net (again considering you have a netgear product), and go to the Firewall setup and turn it on. That’s it, firewall encryption is activated. A firewall is basically a programming which keeps your network secure from any kind of unknown users or IP. Make you always deny third party cookies when you come up with any website. Always reset your browser and clean all the catches. Same goes for range booster, enter into the link lets you have a Linksys the setup link would be Linksys setup or if you have netgear booster the link would be myifiext.net. Every router has its own setup link which is always mentioned either in the manuals or the box or in the sticker on that specific box.Clean up of the devices are very important. Earlier people used to take up their devices to a store or call up a technician for a regular clean or optimization.
However with the advancement is in the technology the trend has changed. We can always get a protection program available on internet for any console and within a single click you can do the optimization and complete clean and it removes all the unwanted junks and files which can hinder you home network security. Just in case if you wish to see the number of devices connected to your network, you can easily do it by logging into the setup link mywifiext (assuming you have a netgear product) and get the information by clicking on the attached device list or the client list. If you find any suspicious device details, you can easily block it and if you are unsure of the device detail you can simply call your ISP and get it checked.
To sum up, it is better keep your Home networks secure by all the means rather it gets too late.
